I just returned from beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico, where I attended the Beadfest which was held in the Santa Fe Convention Center and the historic La Fonda hotel in downtown Santa Fe. If you weren't there, you missed a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the show in a charming southwest setting...including 8 inches of gorgeous white snow on Friday night! The snow didn't slow any of the beaders or the vendors down and we all enjoyed everything Beadest and Santa Fe had to offer! Make plans to attend the show this time next year, you will be glad you did!!
I took 5 different classes taught by Kim St. Jean. We created beautiful bracelets, necklaces and pendants using cold connections, etching and fold forming techniques. I loved every minute of class and Kim is such a great teacher. She was recently voted one of the ten best teachers and I can see why. More on that later....
It's late and I need to get some much needed rest so I will continue with this conversation later.
Happy days to all and to all a good night!!
