Here I am in San Francisco at Beading By The Bay. It’s so good to be back with all of my beady buddies.
We started off with a Swarovski presentation by Ron Rock at the Thursday night dessert reception. We picked up our name tags and goodie bags and presents and sat at tables decorated with Swarovski items scattered on the tables. All of this was for us! Tierra Cast was there with samples of a great leaf imprinted button and some textured beads in a dark copper color. The Gingher designer series scissors were a hit, too. My door prize was a Create Your Style planner with instructions for 12 projects in the back and a Swarovski Elements pen.
Everyone left the reception feeling like they had won the bead jackpot.
