On Friday, Dan, my mom & I attended the Glass Craft and Bead Expo 2019. It was at the South Point Casino in Las Vegas. (One of the great things about living in Vegas – shows come to you!) Apparently, it happens every year, and this is the 25th year. I was looking primarily for specialty beads that I could use as a focal point for necklaces, and pieces I could wire wrap.
The South Point Casino
Everything was so SHINY! It was overwhelming. It would be easy to get carried away. (As you can see, my mom and I both have a penchant for paisley.)
This group of beads will make an appearance in one necklace.
I may do some wire wrapping on these.
And on these.
My mom bought these, so I can make some earrings for her with them.
Such lovely potential here.
These are my absolute favorites!
But I’m loving these too!
These are carved jade from China. They are pretty good sized, so I’m not sure what I’m going to do with them. But at $4.00 each, I couldn’t pass them up.
A good opportunity to pick up some bead colors I didn’t have.

The expo goes on through the weekend, and one ticket gets you in all three days. That said, one day was enough for me. Although, I’m already planning to attend next year.
