Bead Fest Finds

Tuesday, April 17, 2012 |
I've blogged about Bead Fest before...but I just have to come back and share again.  Bead Fest comes to my town once every summer for a HUGE bead show, but they also do a slightly smaller version in the spring.  In the past I've never been able to go to the spring version because I was away at college....but now I can!! And the best part...now that hubby and I moved the fest is literally only 20 minutes from my house.

So.many.beads.so.close.must.go.

So I did this weekend :) 

Here's what I came home with!!!

I got a lot of neutral colors this time around, as big chunky beads.  I can't wait to make them into chunky statement necklaces!!

I'm going to use these black pendants to make a chunky collar necklace, and the clear ones in a smaller version. 

I've seen a lot of cobalt blue and coral this spring as being "in" colors. So I snatched up some beads in those colors too :)

I'm picturing a big statement necklace with these red beads

All of my goodies again :)

I love bead fest because you can get such good deals! I didn't pay more than $3 for any of these strands. Of course it adds up quick though haha.  

I'm so excited to get beading!! I might have to wait until I get my craft room a littttle more organized first...but hopefully I'll have some fun new jewelry tutorials soon :)

Cool! Looking forward to seeing what you create with them. When I see beads on strands it stops me because I can't picture them in another way.
