Joelle and I have been planning to visit the Pasadena Bead Show for over a month! This last Sunday was the day! With no kids in sight and unintentionally small coffee drinks in hand (curse you Starbucks for your wonky serving sizes!) we set off on a 85 mile journey with cash in pocket and the sparkle of beads in our eyes. I had found out that the FABULOUS Green Girl Studio's would be there only a few days before the show and I knew where a majority of my budget would be spent! We were hoping to meet the whole studio family. We arrived in no time flat, thanks I think to such high gas prices, the traffic was light. We registered and utilized our handy map to locate the booth in question. WE WERE CLOSE! There it was in all it's glittery splendor, The Green Girl Studio's booth! Miniature works of art that we could buy! We got to see the amazing one-of-a-kind bezels and were in awe! Greg was on hand to help us and was as sweet as pie. We were a bit star struck! We giggled like school girls and our palms turned sweaty when we layed eyes on the smorgasbord of pendants, beads and buttons! My voice my falter for the remainder of this post.... THEY HAD NEW ITEMS NOT SEEN BY OUR EYES!!!! I've had my eye on and I've added the Fandango charm to my checkout basket at their website no less then 3 times only to get distracted away from the computer... Well HE'S MINE NOW BABY! I have the perfect plan for him involving a certain Pandora's Box pendant! I think we were freaking out our bead pimp er, I mean bead facilitator Greg, so we paid for our treasure trove and as we were hogging the whole table we decided, hesitantly, to move on. Another Bead Celebrity we got to see was Allene, of Allene's Beads!
She looked wonderful and treated us to a tour of here wonderful table. A beautiful mix of ceramic and glass bead artist. I couldn't wait to get my hands of some amazing Golem Studio Beads. It was exciting to see my own basket of pendants on display! We wandered, kid-less, with coffee drinks and amazing beads, jewelry, hats and art to see. It was perfection!
Here is the loot....
Stay tuned for the kiln unload and creations from the loot!
