Suzanne Cooper's Beadylicious Newsletter #148 Nov. 7, '11

Thought for the day: "From the time humans first saw the wink of a gemstone or the glint of gold, they have desired to possess that rare and costly beauty for their own". National Geographic

Be sure to look at the treasure photos in the Armchair Archeologist category. Wow!

The last part of October was a wonderful beady time. This was the 17th year for the Bead/Chile Fiesta. Four days and nights filled with friendship, laughter and beads. We had some wonderful classes given by the attendees including Kumihimo braiding. I was anxious to learn this. Did I make a mess of my first braid? of course I did! There are links in my last newsletter if you want to learn about this.

Until next time, bead well.
