The BFW Bazaar Rocked...

Get it?  Rocked?  haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa 

Bead Fest Wire wasn't only about wire and metal, although that's the most fun part.  There's the shopping involved in this sort of weekend that adds that extra je ne sais quoi to the adventure.  :)  Okay, je's the overwhelming joy of picking up cool beads and then sharing them with friends and taking them home to touch and ogle.  I had to get some more storage thingies yesterday to put them all away.  My sweetie's gone so I have to get thrills somewhere!  haaaaaaaa

I have some fascination with garnet lately.  These are like faceted shiny raisins.  Oh, and you can never have too many "simple cut" faceted bits.  If all goes as planned, you'll see a piece called "Simple Cut Elegance" in the summer issue of Stringing that features this cut of stone.

And here are some more Facety McFacetsons.  I had to get the yellow and black ones even though they're a little strange to me because I was in Pennsylvania.  Get it?  Steelers?  haaaaaaaaa  The browny-orangy ones are still a mystery to me, but they're pretty.

And back in the land of more natural colors...this Red Creek Jasper is just gorgeous!  Plus, I love pyrite to mix with lapis (which makes me think of my deployed sweetie).  There's some bronzite, too, which I had to have because it looked sparkly.  Hey, I'm easy.

I'm going to spend the rest of the day cracking myself up...and making some stuff.  :)
