It is a bead show after all .... and that calls for showing off a bit. I know that other people will be. However, I really don't make showy, elaborate pieces. Mine are more for everyday wear. Since the shirts I am packing are green, turquoise blue and tan, that finally decided my color palette.
I think I have it narrowed down to some of my favorite, most worn pieces. They aren't necessarily show items, but they are all beloved in their own way. I feel comfortable wearing them. The picture is not the greatest as I took it on a whim while packing, not really caring about lighting,etc.
Each piece has its own story, and I may write about them some day.
