Yesterday I made my annual pilgrimage to Lapidary Journal's Beadfest in Fort Washington, PA. It is one of the largest jewelry supply trade shows in the country and I never get to see all the booths before it's time to leave. It never ceases to amaze me how one can fit thousands of dollars worth of beads and tools in a tote bag. Last night I would close my eyes and see beads; I even dreamt of beads. I challenge you to engage me in a conversation topic other than jewelry!
