Day Two...

Another busy day here in Tucson! However, I did get a few minutes to walk around and pick up some goodies. I got to stop at Kelly Russell's booth and picked up two of her PMC creations. I also stopped at The Odyssey & Bead Expression for some nice niobium earwires and to chat with Marti Brown. It was nice to visit with some of my bead-show buddies who I haven't seen in a long time.

After our show closed, we went over to our other location at the Best Bead Show for the late night. I got to see Candice Wakumoto and her husband Paul and talk with Alethia Donathan for a bit. I also got some really awesome cast findings from Candice. I love them!

When we finally went back to the house, we went out for Indian food. Since the show closed so late, it was hard to find a place that was open. Luckily we found a place that was both open and delicious!

Left: Here's Alethia Donathan behind her booth. She's got some lovely beads that she makes out of glass. Alethia is one of the owners of a bead shop out in Hawaii and teaches beading to a group of advanced high school students. She and Candice bring me goodies from from Hawaii! I love them!
