Special Project Update - Bead & Button Show

Have you ever become attached to a special jewelry project?

The Cousin Creative Circle Ambassadors were given an ultra fabulous assignment earlier this year.

We haven't shared our projects with you because they are going to be on display in the PrimaBead booth at the Bead and Button show that starts next week in Milwaukee, yay!

Prima Bead is the sister company to Cousin that is specifically a retail catalog outlet. You can find Cousin products at LOTS of craft stores as well as Walmart, Meijer and many others. But, if you want to order from Cousin directly, you must have a wholesale account.

Prima takes care of the rest of us who may not currently be in a business situation. :) They will be in booths 733 and 735 if you happen to be checking out the expo vendors at the Bead & Button show.

So, back to the project...We were given a pretty good sized budget to create a fabulous attention getting necklace for display. It was really hard not to share it with you, but local friends put up with me showing them pictures on my Kindle Fire. Yeah, I've become one of those people.

I missed the project so much that I decided to use a few of the leftover pieces and parts to make a reminder of it in a ready to wear necklace and bracelet.

These pieces are about as minimal as the B&B project is extreme, but they are perfect for my everyday wear and remind me of the excitement AND fear of having the opportunity to make something special to represent the company as an ambassador for all to see (choke/swallow/breathe into a paper bag).

I hope you will let me know if you happen upon it at the show. Please give it a little "hello" from me if you get a chance. :)
