Amala Beads Worldwide is a new source for the discerning bead collector and jewelry lover. I am always on the hunt for new and interesting items and can offer you an exciting collection of beads and findings that have been collected from the world over. Many of the beads I sell have been handmade by me and all of the finished pieces I offer are designed and assembled by me as well. You'll never find a "mass market" version of finished jewelry on this site! I offer a custom design service, meeting your needs for a single bead or a complete "parure" composed of earrings, necklace, bracelet, and brooch.

Proctor Arts Fest - 2017

The Proctor Arts Fest was held last Saturday.  I wasn't a vendor there this year but I did go to check things out and to visit with some friends.

Ken Bailey was there, selling his dog and cat posters.  You may have seen his artwork - his posters are reminiscent of vintage advertising art but with a special twist.  You can see his full catalog by going here -

I learned some art fest tips from the lovely ladies at "Beyond the Basic Basket". Here is their website address -

The folks at Tacoma Lamp Repair were there with a one day special.  If you ever need an odd shaped light bulb this is the place to go! -

I met Officer Mullin of our local police department.  He gets to ride a Harley every day - . He was at the event with his motorcycle and was offering photo opportunities for kids to have their picture taken while sitting on his bike.  Did the kids get to turn on the flashing lights?!

I caught up with the folks at "Wag", a really super pet food and toy market and they took several of my flyers advertising my stand at the upcoming Hilltop Street Fair -

Last but not least, I stopped by Metropolitan Market - - to get something cold to drink and to chat with Micah, Roxanne, and Kim.  Micah was gracious enough to take some of my flyers to hand out to the store staff.
