A favorite question that I answer is, "Where do you find your beads?" Well, I have some trusted companies that have internet ordering, but to see the beads in person first, is a real joy and a true treasure hunt! This past Saturday, I attended the Rocky Mountain Bead Society's Annual Spring Sale at the Denver Merchandise Mart. Here are gathered 200 bead sellers and it's enought to make your head spin! Still, it's fun to visit with vendors I've purchased from over the past five years and to meet new bead creators, like "Lipstick Ranch" where fabulous metal beads are made right outside of Longmont, Colorado (practically my backyard) and yes, on a ranch! Here are some pictures below of the bead show and check out my "Inspiration" page for more of the story of Lenka and her wonderful Czech glass. There's definitely some fun beading ahead for me!
