This Foldi LED Lamp from Daylight brings natural light to your workspace. The Daylight folks let me take one of these portable lamps to try on the plane and I was thrilled to be able to bead in my seat. It runs on batteries, but you can also power it by connecting via USB to your laptop. Genius, right?
My friend and fellow Swarovski Ambassador, Fernando Dasilva, launched his new Instant Glam line at the show. The metal bezels can be used for anything, but Nando created specially-cut crystal rocks to make it quick and easy to create your own, stylish jewelry. Check out the Metal Complex blog to see more ideas and pix from the show.
Beadalon presented a new collection of products at the show. One of my favorites is Flat Memory Wire. It's great for wire-wrapping. I made these bangles from a piece of flat memory (wrapped with crystals) and Elasticity stretch cord across the center. The stretch cord allows the bracelet to fit over your hand.
We had a book signing and launch for the new book, Crystal Jewelry Inspiration, which features projects from many of the Swarovski Ambassadors. (You might recognize my Crystal Prints design in this ad currently running in BeadStyle!) Click the link for more pix and sneak peeks on Pinterest.
My crafty friend Candie Cooper made this lovely leather cuff using Jewelry Attitude, a new printable film that allows you to place your own image onto leather, metal, wood and more. Click the link for Candie's video, which is packed with great ideas.
Next stop, Tucson! Stay tuned.
