I just returned home from a small bead show that was in Richardson -- about a 20 minute drive north of downtown Dallas. Here is a pic of my new purchases. I have something in mind for the dragon pendant, but not for the other items I bought. My sister went to a bead show in Milwaukee, WI last Spring and she purchased some Tibetan beads for me that I wanted and I'm going to put them with the dragon pendant. Watch for my other new items as I make them and add them to my new Etsy store at www.neeneeandcheechee.etsy.com. Now, it's off to beading!
