Goodies from the Intergalactic Bead Show

This bead show had great birthday! It's not actually until the 17th but I had birthday $ to spend and so off I went! My husband went too, he is a lampwork artist and enjoys talking to all the lampworkers that have booths there.
 Okay, onto the important stuff...what I bought!
I was so excited when I saw the strands of Roman Glass, I had to buy one...after much consideration, I finally chose the strand for me. Those green beads are yellow turquoise, I just love them! The orange agate pendant is a bit different for me but when I saw it I just had to have it and I'm always a sucker for Chalcedony and Sari silk!
I bought these 4 pieces for myself...well I was spending birthday money so why not?
The top two are from Fire Goddess. Susan is a real sweetheart, and so is her husband.
Chain from AD Adornments, I always spend most of my money at this booth.
And a few more pieces from AD Adornments and a few other vendors.
I fell in love with these Amber beads (2nd and 3rd strands from the bottom) and the top 2 strands have a really cool texture. They are called Rudraksha.

I'm excited to try out the Vintaj patinas! Maybe that will be my next blog post...
