Beadfest......

<<
This past Saturday I attended the Beadfest convention at the Valley Forge Convention Center with two of my good friends, Liz and Sally who are both jewelry artists and designers(LizRevit.com)and(Wireworked by SMR Designs). We had an absolutely great day! The convention is always so exciting and really gets you into the groove and those creative juices start flowing when you see all the vendors and the designers and the atmosphere is just electric! We found some really great deals ....sparkling strands of crystals and pearls and new jewelry accents to add to your new creations.......


.....and I had the opportunity to take my first class with Joan Babcock! Her jewelry is fabulous and she is by far my favorite micro-macrame' jewelry artist!We made a micro-macrame, fiber bead bracelet which was a delightful project to do! Thanks to Joan and her husband Jeff...they are both wonderful teachers and are patient,kind, helpful and really made everyone feel right at home!The class was a great success.Here are some pics...That's Joan on the bottom front left with some students in class....


Everyone is working on their bead.....
