Bead&Button Report

What fun to be here in Milwaukee for the 2011 Bead&Button Show! Meet the Teachers took place last night from 8 to 11—the hall was packed with fans, but I still had the chance to chat with dozens of terrific artists, renewing acquaintance with some, and discovering others for the first time. For your pleasure, and in no particular order, a little photo essay of just a few of the stars at this event.

    Nath, thanks for sharing all the faces to go with the names and the outstanding work of these beaders and jewelers. Looks like the show is buzzing happily this year!

    Nathalie…you must not know about Marcia’s no profile picture rule……interesting, I think she is the only one you have in full profile…run and hide quick before she sees this!! LOL No really.

    I had no idea! After I read your comment, I ran into Marcia while she was on a break from teaching, and she confirmed what you tell me.

    So I shot some new photos—from the front only—and as soon as I can organize the hundreds of photos I took, while somehow still meeting all my other book deadlines, I will replace the photo in this post with a different one! Marcia would undoubtedly say, “The sooner the better, Nathalie!”

    Thanks for the tip!
