Ottawa Bead Show

Louise Ingram's beads

On Saturday I went to the 4th Annual Bead Show at the Hellenic Centre on Prince of Wales Drive.
As soon as I came through the door I was delighted by Louise Ingram and her monkey beads

As I roamed around I was in awe of the talent and creativity in the room.
The next table I went to was Mary Ann Helmond of MA Beads the peacock necklace that she was wearing is beyond spectacular.  Made entirely of glass beads, the center of each feather is an individual bead made with the image of a peacock on it.

The last booth I visited was Jessie Tesolin, she was sweet, talented, delightful and full of stories.
