Escape to New York, Part 2: Whole Bead Show

In case you missed my previous post, I am in the Big Apple! My first stop after dropping my things off? Checking out the Whole Bead Show, which was in town for its semi annual extravaganza. I had been to the one in Vancouver for the past several years and was curious about the different vendors.

There were many more vendors and lots of pretty gemstones to gawk over. I stocked up on a few strands of pyrites, citrines, and London blue topazes as well as picked up some beautiful pairs of pink chalcedonies, Swiss blue topazes, and green amethysts. Here is a shot of a stranger checking out the show:
