Beads by Calvin Orr

I'm a little disabled after having "surgery" on my toenail, so I couldn't go gallivanting with my sisters this weekend.  Instead I dragged Wendell to Waioli Tea Room yesterday so that I could check out local glass artist Calvin G. Orr's beads at a tiny fair that was being held there. You can check out Calvin's website here

These are the beads that I bought.  Loooooook how pretty!!  They were around $5 each.









Calvin threw in these two for free. Nice yah!

These kawaii creatures were $6 each.



This cute guy got put on my cell phone right away.

Calvin had even prettier ones for sale, but I couldn't afford.  If you get the chance, you can check out his stuff on September 20 to 22 at Bead Show Honolulu to be held at Ward Center next to Bed, Bath and Beyond.

Oh-oh. You have entered into the glass artist bead world now. Calvin is fantastic. We always wonder what he is smoking since he comes up with the most beautiful unique beads. He is also really a nice person.
You got some treasures! Enjoy bead hoarding!

Thanks Honolulu Aunty! Beads are on a black t-shirt. Light from window and I think reflected light off the ceiling.
