Well, I know I am supposed to be tackling the bead stash, but bead fairs don't come around that often here and I have got a lot of events to show at before Christmas, so I needed new stock, honest ;-)
The Welsh Bead Fair was held today st the Village Hotel in Cardiff and I was lucky enough to meet up with an online beading buddy, the lovely CraftyCarol. The event is quite small but enough to do some damage at, I purposefully left the plastic at home. The only thing I was disappointed at was the lack of chains and sterling silver findings but I did keep some of my budget back so I can stock up online this week.I left my camera at home so could not take photo's at the fair but I thought you might like to see the goodies I brought home.
First up are these lovely ceramic beads from Moon Beads,
I bought some beautiful and funky focal beads from The Beads Nest,
The stall I did most damage to my Budget at was Anita's Beads, I got some fabulous glass pearls,
Some lovely glass including some honkingly big black rondelles,
More glass beads and some fantastic pendants,
