back from the CHA show in Anaheim

 what a whirlwind!!
it was an amazing time at the craft and hobby show in California
 (more than 3,000 buyers and 400 exhibitors from 55 plus countries 
 for 5 days of education, networking and trade)
it was a mix of business, demoing soutache at the John Bead booth
and pleasure, taking classes and seminars plus meeting tons of people
 a visit from wendy russell and carmi cimicata
above my demo table and
below a sneak peek at some of the elements from
my showcase necklace
using dazzle-it soutache cord , metal complex fish leather
and a mix of new and vintage beads
all supplied by John Bead
i'm still trying to process it all
as soon as i can i will post more on the show and my necklace
