Stourbridge Bead Fair

I decided midweek that a trip to Stourbridge was in order as I found out that it's only about an hour and a half away from here and quite a few of my friends from Bead Buddies were going to be there either selling or buying.  I made cupcakes last night to take with me and got Steven to drive.  This is what I bought:

Top row: 4 sets and a focal from Vickie (Beads4Breakfast), 5 little beads from Lesley (Madcat).

Middle row: lentil set from Lush Lampwork, owl from Min Fidler, focal from Jeannette.

Bottom row: 2 silver clasps from George, focal set from Laney (Izzybeads).

I could have bought soooooo much more though!
The skull and zombie are actually for Kieran.  He's always asking me to make him something but, generally speaking, beads are girly so I've never really been able to.  I think I'm just gonna hang these two from lengths of leather thong and hope he likes them.
I fell in love with the owl although I've no idea what I'm gonna do with him.  I do know that he's mine though! :o) 


  1. Drooooooooool!!!! Loved the cupcakes, thank you!!!! It was lovely meeting you!!!

  2. I love that owl, Donna - it's adorable (and I'm very, very jealous!)
