I received today's beads as a gift from a friend/co-worker who just returned from a trip to the Grand Canyon and Sedona, Arizona. She is not a beader or crafter of any kind, but took the time to visit a bead store which was so thoughtful!!
The beads she selected are interestingly very much like her! Very earthy, but sleek and shiny with some serious sparkle thrown in.
She couldn't recall the name of the shop, but she did say it was in the craft village of Tlaquepaque. I am guessing it was probably, Cocopah. When I searched on Google, I found a short, but cute, video of the Cocopah bead store.
I can't wait to have some time to brainstorm on how I want to use these!
