All the fun of the (bead)fair

Yesterday I was dropped off at the Stourbridge Bead Fair, whilst my husband and son went to Worcester for the Canoe meet. The fair was predominantly lampwork and findings, and the quality of beads on offer was amazing. Naturally I had to buy (rude not to) and managed to spread my spend amongst many talented lampworkers who I've previously met only on the internet! I indulged in a silver ring with topper  (By George, and Lush Lampwork) and some lovely beads by Jeannette Fletcher, Vickie (Beads 4 Breakfast), Laney Mead (Izzybeads)

Seeking beads

Going for a family trip to unknown bead territory, will be taking in the Bead Fair at Stourbridge so I expect to have several lovely lampworked souvenirs on my return, but who knows what other temptations I'll encounter?

Hopefully I'll meet some of the lovely beaders I've met in the ether, through beading forums, Facebook, on-line shops or blogs...

And then it will be back to the school term routine, albeit with extra beads to comfort me!
