My first Beadfest as an exhibitor has come and gone. It was most definitely worth the days spend firing and glazing in a frenzy! I had a wonderful time – seeing my pieces well received, meeting new friends, catching up with old friends. And I managed to fit in a little shopping and a bit of barter (tomorrow’s post). For now – a recap of the booth, and a few of my neighbors. I regret not taking more people pictures…I seem to have focused on the beads.
Lampwork lovelies from my neighbor Sue Kennedy of Sue Beads.
What patience! Hundreds of raku beads from Amy at Xaz Bead Company.
One of a kind ceramic focals and buttons from Mary Hubbard at White Clover Kiln.
Green Girl Studios – pewter charms, buttons, pendants…
Lampwork from Heather of HBM Studios.
Lampwork focals from Anne of Gardanne Beads.
The show was great, although long hours on one’s feet. The atmosphere was very invigorating, and creative. I am thrilled to be part of this community; I am very glad I took the leap and applied. Although it seems very quiet here at home, alone – I am full of ideas and energy – so thank you friends!

I really enjoyed being your neighbor! I loved all your beads and your display! Hope to be neighbors next year!
You guys were great neighbors! Made me feel better setting up and knowing someone! Next year would rock!
I’m jealous that you got photos of beads~ I didn’t get photos of people or beads!
Great talking to you though!
Every time I walked by your booth was swamped! Nice to meet you!
It looks like a great time was had by all. And I love seeing these beadzes… some are ones I know and others are new to me! Your booth looks great, and so does that lady working it. 😉
Enjoy the day, Miss Jenny!
Erin – you are just going to have to road trip out to Philly next August! Thanks! I like a picture of me better when hiding behind my work!
