The Borneo International Beads Conference.
Took place last weekend.
Last year was held in Miri, about an hour by air from Kuching.
So this year, I made sure I don't miss it since its in Kuching.
Sad! Sad!, I only managed about half an hour there, before its time to pick the boy from his Taekwando.

These bead works are from South Afrika and Kenya.
The top most are peacock necklace from South Africa.

Very detailed and intricate work.
I was told it takes about a week to complete one.
:) my favorite stall that displayed lots of Copper and silver wire jewelry from Indonesia.
Look familiar? The rose pendant at the top right corner :)
Lots of wire weaving and coiling there.
Another beautiful native beads from Borneo.
About 10mm or larger each.
You have a great weekend.
I am looking forward to it....working on my next wire jewelry tutorial :)
