I've spent the past week filing paperwork for the upcoming meeting with our accountant. Urgh... I hate tax time. I have finally finished and now have some time to put my Tuscon goodies away.
Before we left for Tucson, we were down in Orange County for the CHA show. While at the show I stopped by the Soft Flex booth to say "hi" to Sara Hardin and Jamie Hogsett. While I was talking with Sara, I spied a fantastic lampwork glass bead on one of the samples. I completely fell in love with this enormous, bumpy boro bead. Sara wasn't sure who made it because it wasn't one of her samples. I just couldn't shake the memory of this bead.
Fast forward to the Best Bead Show in Tucson, which by the way, is appropriately named... Lo and behold, right there in the lobby was the maker of my coveted bead! It was Martha Proctor of Liquid Sand Studio. www.liquidsandstutio.com Below is a photo of the gorgeous "honker" of a bead with yummy bumps in tourmaline colors. I can't wait to make something with this treasure!
