Today, I am looking forward to the visual and tactile experience of a room full of stones, pearls and glass bead at the BeadShow in Niles, IL. First thing on my shopping list is nickel-free crimp beads. I found some Vintaj brass findings at Hobby Lobby that are nickel free. I hope to find nickel-free findings with a silver tone that cost less than sterling silver. My next project will be restringing all my mom's necklaces so they are nickel free.
