Yesterday some of the bead producers of Mzuribeads came out to see my exhibition. They were super inspired, seeing their beads in such a professional and funky atmosphere. Afterward, we ambled across to Isha's restaurant for dinner and we discussed future possibilities....then.. giggled a lot and danced.
It was true when I told them that they were my most important guests at the show, and I couldn't have been happier with their response to my work. Working on the exhibition took up a lot of my time, which otherwise would have been directed on Mzuribeads sales. Everyone is aware that this months sales figures have been somewhat low in comparison to previous months. In short, it was great that the team have regarded this show as something worth time and effort despite the financial setback.
