Bead Fest Philadelphia Finds
Bead Fest show. I picked up most of the items I hoped to find and more...Normal for me at a buying show. Small towns around my area, so I tend to buy extra to save on high shipping costs. I picked up some fun chain, rustic ceramic Indian Beads, wooden beads, assorted leather, multi color glass frit, resin cubes, and swanky pearls. I also picked up a few tools I needed. Overall it was a nice show, but I felt some the big jewelry suppliers were missing. Not much brass, not much in the way of findings...just the basics. I felt the Wire Fest show was more fulfilling for me. Don't get me wrong, I'll still go....just wishing for more of a selection. So now to start putting my ideas into cool jewelry!
