Back From the Gathering

I couldn't resist getting my photo taken with this borosilicate glass artisan who also happens to be on the US Beard Team which competes internationally.  (He's the 4th place winner.)  I met him at the Gathering's Bead Bazaar in Louisville, KY last Saturday.

Of course I needed to know his secrets... when asked what products does he use on his beard, he replied, "Paul Mitchell".

What I didn't tell that of course, he will be the inspiration for a new bead.  I can't resist.  And as those wheels were already turning, I gave him one of my gnome beads that had a pretty cool beard already.
