Bay Area Bead Extravaganza

Last weekend I went to the Bay Area Bead Extravaganza (BABE for short) (http://beadextravaganza.com/). I took a class called "Talisman Bracelet," taught by Susan Lenart Kazmer. She is a good teacher, tailors the instruction to the class and is very enthusiastic and encouraging. And I like her focus on found objects and simple tools. My bracelet isn't finished; I'll post a picture when it is. In the meantime, I'm posting pictures of the beads I bought. I decided to spend my budget on lampworked glass focal beads this year.









I also picked up some inexpensive non-glass beads.






We'll see if I can do these justice.
