Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday! Another beautiful day in NW Michigan. I love it! Today was an Artisan show in Pentwater. I love this tiny port town. It’s located just south of my hometown. I found some goodies on my adventure out today. Im always lookin for unique things. First of all, lets talk trolls! When a Michigander is a “troll” that means you are “under the bridge” (Mackinaw Bridge that is) and thus.. a troll! Ok, so along with us using our hand as a map.. we have some goofy terminology.. (kinda like the term.. fudgie for a tourist who purchases fudge). Anyway.. I found some trolls that I absolutely adore.. Trollbeads that is! I’m totally addicted!!! These are on the same basis as Pandora beads but, they are a bit more whimisical and what I’d call more on the “artsy” side. Each bead represents something.. I purchase my beads becasue of a meaning to me personally. I got a little carried away and I started my second bracelet. (Robin, if you are reading this, dont laugh!). Art Gallery in Pentwater carries a large variety of Trollbeads. http://trollbeads.com/site/trollbeads/
While walking the art show I found a lot of pretty things, but there is one lady in particular who I love to visit with. She owns Molten Obsession. Her and her son make their own lampwork beads and she does all the assembly of these beautiful pieces.. earings, bracelets and necklaces. It’s heaven in a booth! I usually buy a piece of her art every year.. and this year was no exception. Here is my newest addition, a bracelet with cream, light pink and mint green lampwork beads. I love the chunky and the dangles of this piece. You can find more of her beautiful bead art here: http://www.mo-beads.com/ . Check it out if you are the slightest bead lover.. you wont be sorry. Have a great rest of your weekend!
