This year was my first time at the Bead & Button Show in Milwaukee. I went specifically to meet Becky Nunn in person, as I am serving on her Innovation Team this year and it was a great opportunity to meet her and two other members of the team: Erin Prais-Hintz (www.tesoritrovati.com) and Rochelle Nation (www.rochellenation.com). Erin got me hooked onto polymer clay--which will be a whole different blog post--and we had a great time urging each other on shopping for gemstones!
And then, there was the shopping! Great deals from Nunn Design, fantastic vintage findings from Sandy Schor, the most beautiful sari silk, and Czech glass colors I've never seen before...oh, I can't wait for next year!
