We had an amazing weekend at Gold Dust Days this past weekend. The weather was beautiful and the community turned out to support it's local crafters. On of my favorite parts of this particular show is that it's right in our backyard and is full of activities for kids.
The bike parade was my son's favorite part of the show; the look of pride and excitement filling his face as he rode the bike that he and his Dad decorated during the day filled my heart. With this show being in our backyard my family came often during the weekend to say hi, participate in the community events, and watch the parade.
I met some more amazing crafters, and spent the down time reminiscing with crafters that have now become old friends!
I met two amazingly talented jewelry artisans that have an incredible talent for beading.
Snowflake Cottage: Handcrafted Gifts & Beaded Designs by Rustye
Rusty is an incredibly talented lady, she has done things with beads that are truly stunning. The hours of work that must go in to each and every one of her designs blows me away. Rusty uses many different materials to create one of a kind pieces of wearable art. She doesn't have a website, but she does many local shows including the Duvall Farmers market and you can send her an email if you love her stuff as much as I do!
