Beads, originally uploaded by LeggNet.

This past Sunday I had the distinguished privilege to attend something that I have never been to before: A Bead Show!

In the company of my wife and daughters, I got to see untold amounts of colorful beads that are used mostly, from what I gather, in the manufacture of jewelry (especially in my house).

Captured here is just a small example of the many colorful options the discenrning bead connoisseur has to choose from.
