So, the "Down the Street" (DTS) bead show came through Charlotte (sorta). Actually, it came through Rock Hill, but that's only 20 minutes away, so I still made a trip. For those who don't know what the DTS bead show is....it's like a heaven for any jewelry designer...more specifically, it's when a bunch of bead & supply vendors who get together to sale their wares in one place. There were about 20 different vendors with numerous stands of gemstones, shells, pearls, and more! It was awesome! I went a little crazy, and got several new strands of beads, but they are fabulous! I can't wait to make something beautiful with all my new goodies. Stay tuned for some hot new designs, coming you way soon!
