Back from the Bead Bazaar

This past weekend I had a booth at the North West Bead Society's Annual Bead Bazaar, which was held in the Lynnwood Convention Center. I sold quite a lot of books and micro-macrame kits for making my infamous owl earrings and kitschy baroque bracelets. Both days I knotted kitschy baroque bracelets and answered questions about cords, crystal beads, the history of macrame, and where I found the gnarly wire tree on the display table where all the owls were perched.
Many people stopped by to gawk and talk about my jewelry because they hadn't ever seen macrame done on such a tiny scale before. It was great fun to be there in the midst of so many talented jewelry artists but today, I am exhausted!

Conventions are always exhausting but meeting all the great people is so worth it!

That wire tree really is a great display piece! Perfect for the little owls.

I'm amazed at the stamina of folks who routinely do the "convention circuit." Do you go to many of them? I would think even the local ones would be enough to keep you busy.

Thanks for posting pics of the event, now I have a better idea what to expect. (And I will make it next year, I swear!)
