Shelly & I are attending the Whole Bead Show in Providence, Rhode Island. after a very long plane ride we landed and immediately felt relieved to be here. This is such a beautiful state, lovely brick buildings, lots of very big historic houses, many with cupolas an interesting details, unusual shapes, porches, very cool.
Providence is jewelry central, tons of manufacturers, lots of possibilities here. My Swarovski rep. is here so we took the opportunity to visit and see their show room. I could spend days there! The showroom has these wonderful shallow drawers full of crystals, cameos, beads, and cabs of all kinds. They have a huge display of vintage pre WWI beads and pendants, OMG! Very inspirational.
