Mosaic Monday...

I'll take you to the candy shop.... errrr, I meant the bead shop.  Plus I spent more than 50cent!!  Okay bad joke- stop the eye rolling. LOL!   Olivia, her BFF, and I spent Saturday at the Intergalatic Bead Show at the Gwinnet Convention Center.  This was my first time at the bead show and boy was I impressed.
We found precious and semi-precious gemstone beads, gold and silver beads, copper, brass beads, findings, chains, charms, pendants, lampwork glass beads, swarovski crystals, pearls, hand made jewelry and much, much more.
My favorite finds were Sugar Beads.. They look like Skittles, don"t they?
Last year I introduced the Sweet Tarte Collection for Spring. 
These beads are going to be perfect for updating those designs for 2012!!  Other great finds were gold plated beads in every shape & size,
seed beads, 
unusual clasps and toggles,
and these beautiful pearl creations.
I've taken several of my favorite pictures from the bead show and paired them up with some fun pictures found on Pinterest this past week for Mosaic Monday.  This mosaic has also been linked up to Little Red House.  Hope you have a colorful week!!



  1. How amazing! I would walk in and never come out! So much beauty and eye candy! A couple of very cute girls to go with you, too! ♥♥♥

  2. I don't know that I could trust myself in much beauty!! It must have been very inspiring though...for me it would have been expensive as well.
