A mutual friend and lampwork artist, Sheila Davis, was also at the show. Kristi cracked me up; entering Sheila's booth, with hands around her eyes, like blinkers. "I'm not looking", she declared, "I'm just here to say hello". I totally get this, because to enter Sheila's booth, is to want to buy every bead and pendant she has made. This is a seriously skilled lampworker! I wasn't nearly as self controlled as Kristi was. I walked in wide eyed and walked out with 2 pairs of marvelous lampwork head pins.
I love how these turned out! Its a good thing I got 2 pair of these head pins, because I may need to keep one pair for myself!
