The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show is approaching fast, so we thought we would take a look back at our adventures in Tucson from last year. The Artbeads Blog for Beaders followed the Artbeads team as they gave us a sneak peek at what new treasures were being showcased in Arizona, as well as their run-ins with some top designers. Below are some highlights from the past year as Artbeads traveled to Tucson for cool new products to bring home.
Yesterday was the first day for me to see BEADS! I wasn’t quite sure what to expect but I had a lot of fun.
I also stopped by Grace Lampwork Beads and chatted with other friends before leaving to the next show.
Here we are hanging out with Kristal Wick and a cactus!
After To Bead True Blue, I made a coffee stop and met up with the rest of the Artbeads team at the Best Bead Show. There were a lot of booths in the building and in tents outside. We stopped by Lillypilly Designs to pick up some Tucson Treasures and more for the website.
It had already been a long day of walking, shopping and talking but it wasn’t over! We went to the exclusive Swarovski Create Your Style party! It was on the outskirts of town with a gorgeous view at a luxurious hotel restaurant.
Stay tuned when we reveal our trip to Tucson for 2012!
