I will be working at Lush Beads in downtown Lowell on Tuesdays, helping the "Other Liz" and making a little $$ to keep things moving along. I know, it is dangerous to work in a bead shop, but I can handle it! I'm not addicted, I swear. A few beads never hurt anyone. Just this one time. I really need these. Shiny! Sigh.

Unfortunately, everything in there looks like a still life and it's hard for artists to move through quickly! I have many bruises.
Here are some shots I grabbed quickly:
