March 2013 Denver Bead Show

I love the March bead show in Denver, but it always goes by way too quickly.  This year the wholesale area was definitely the place to be, with the most bargains.  I was a little bit disappointed that there seemed to be more finished jewelry vendors and less bead vendors.  However I still managed to score quite a haul.  My favorite vendors this year were May's Beads and China Mountain Gems.  The photos below show the strands that I purchase, except for the Indonesian glass strands, which are still tucked away.  I also picked up some nice silver plated Bali beads and other assorted metal.  I love everything I found, but I have to say some of my favorites were some strands I picked up in salmon and pale orange colors... colors that I've had a hard time finding in the past.
