Having just arrived back home from the always fabulous Tucson Gem and Mineral Show where I taught classes and exhibited at the Tucson Bead Show, located at the Windmill Inn.

Last Wednesday, many of the SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Ambassadors convened at the Beyond Beadery room at the Whole Bead Show for a signing of our new Crystal Jewelry Inspirations book by Kalmbach. We were joined by our wonderful editor Karin Van Voorhees. Afterwards, many of the Ambassadors joined Lisa Lambright and me at our suite for a late night pizza party.

Amidst all of the work and scheduled events, Lisa and I managed to make a little time to visit some of the shows and shop. Fortunately the limited time kept me from running amok with my credit cards.

I was so glad to get the chance to stop by and check out my friend and fellow Ambassador, Linda Hartung's new WireLuxe product. She gifted me with a sample that I am going to develop a project on this year for publication.
