Well, FINALLY! You have all been waiting with bated breath to see what I lugged (quite literally) home from my first visit to Tucson! So here they are!
They are made by Anna Fearer and you can find her Etsy shop/blog/website :
Anna's Etsy Store
PJ Tools, Inking kit from Bello Modo, and Guilder's paste from Kabela Designs. All for altering metal pieces, I have been wanting to add the altered pieces to my jewelry for a while now, but hadn't had the courage to jump in. Now I have!
Rings & Things (spools) and Whimbeads (loose). Great prices and selection. These are base metal chains, but nice quality.
Hip Chick Beads! Love the mixed shapes and it is a really lovely design.
Kelli & Michael Burns from The Hole Bead Shop in Oklahoma. Years ago, Michael wondered across me talking about their products/company on my blog and we have been internet friends since! It was wonderful to meet them in person and shop all of their beautiful varieties. I also bought fun, vintage metal pieces from them!
Aloha Bead had! So much Czech glass leaves, flowers, and shapes! I could have spent a lot of time and money wading through all of the choices!
Christi Friesen, whom I also purchased a book from (which she graciously signed). The wire piece is from Lillian Chen, whom we had the pleasure of watching do demos at the Parawire booth. (I couldn't find a website for her to link to!)
Parawire booth! Gorgeous colors and lots of gauges to work with! We brought tons of this home for Julie's shop.
Dolly Ahles (Flamedancer Beads).
Won't they be lovely in a piece of bead embroidery?!!!
Beyond Beadery completely amazing cabs and rivolis! What did I say about the 80's colors?! The lime green rivolis and the HUGE orange one are definitely 80's neon colors and the cabs above feel like gummy bears! Very interesting texture, but you have to be careful with the foil backs that they don't get scratched.
