I was working at the To Bead True Blue show at the Manning House. The day was a pretty relaxed day, full of meeting wonderful customers and other vendors. I had the opportunity to talk to so many amazing people!
The highlight of the second day in Tucson by far was the Beadwork party. Each year in Tucson, Beadwork throws a party for their advertisers. Usually it's at the Tucson Botanical Gardens. This year, they moved the party to the Tucson Museum of Art.

Left: Lisa Kan with Danielle Fox. Lisa creates finely crafted glass beads. Her work is inspired by Asian art. Danielle works for Beadwork and Stringing. She used to live in New York and actually used to live a couple of blocks away from me when I lived in Gramercy Park, but alas... we never knew it.
