Beads in the wild at the Big Bead Show!

The Big Bead Show is certainly the place to go to see beads in the wild!

I was thrilled to see one of my ‘torchtimer’ pals, Rosie, at the show. She’s been to Let Fire Inspire for two courses, and when she came last September for a third time she was on a mission to make lampwork beads to coordinate with a beautiful collection of beaded beads she had made. She came with another keen beader, Susan, and while Susan and I embarked on a half-day course together, Rosie set up camp at one of the work stations with a stash of glass to work independently on her own projects.

In the foreground are Rosie’ beaded beads. Behind them are beads that she’d made on a previous course with me. It’s lovely when different beads come together in harmony! September 2018
