Yes I had a blast in Tucson at the Gem and Mineral show. I also had a blast in Pasadena at the Bead and Design show. Of course for me having a blast definitely involves buying new THINGS for my creations. Here's the first creation using some of these new THINGS: smokey quartz from Tucson, gorgeous vermeille connectors from Pasadena and lampwork from Moosetrail Beads! Enjoy!
