The folks of East Lansing, Michigan LOVE their Art Festival which seems to be the official start of summer. East Lansing folks anticipate this art festival all winter long and turn out in droves to support the show. From my booth I've witnessed joyful reunions between friends and neighbors. They greet each other as if they've NOT seen each other since before the winter locked everyone indoors the previous fall.
This will be my third year in East Lansing. Same spot as last year, booth #20 near the White Hen. Stop in and say 'Hi'.
Matte finish green Aventurine woven over soft leaf green leather with brass and hematite accents. A stone of luck and opportunity. I noticed a new trend in beads this year, soft matte finishes. I scooped up a fair number of the lovely, subtle matte finish beauties at the last bead show I attended. Watch for them in my newest batch of bracelets.
Wrap your wrists with Love!
I've completely given into my lifelong love of beads, stones, making stuff and stories, not particularly in that order.
