A Sparkling Good Time

So I just spent a few days with some of the most talented and amazing men & women you could ever hope to meet or gather in one room......The SWAROVKSI ELEMENTS Ambassdors!  The Ambassadors were invited to the North American Swarovski Headquarters in Cranston, RI recently but before we invaded the offices quite a large group of us made a splash at fellow ambassador Debra Saucier's store The Bead & Wire Shop for a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Ambassador's Meet & Greet. What a sparkling turnout!!!! We had a blast with the customers as well as had some time to talk and enjoy being together! A huge thanks to Deb & her family for hosting all of us!!!!!

Here is myself, Tammy Honaman, Sandra Lupo, Stephanie Dixion (The Dixon Chick) and Lilian Chen on the bus heading to meet the rest of the SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Ambassador gang
 at The Bead & Wire Shop

Tammy with a few of her fans!!!

 Deb Saucier, Owner of The Bead & Wire Shop and I taking pictures of each other taking pictures of the festivities at her store during the event
Stephanie Dixion was doing demo's in the front of The Bead & Wire Shop.  Everyone loved her demo's!!!  She was later teaching all of us a few beady & sparkling tips, love the Dixon Chick!!

We got to the offices, mingled, talked, brainstormed, saw the new innovations and showroom in person, trained on products that we love even more now after Nick Regine shared a bit of his knowledge and expertise with us, a fabulous dinner and well to say that we had a sparkling time is a bit of an understatement! a big thank you Nicole, Nick, Barbara,Rebecca, Kim and everyone else at Swarovski for your time it was greatly appreciated!!!

Two super talents!  Jamie North & Leslee Frumin at the Swarovksi North American Headquarters

 Me and Jamie North, love this gal!
 We have invaded the offices!  Let the games begin!

Dinner was fabulous but the company was even more sparkling!  Here are Monica Han, Brenda Schweder, Lilian Chen , Debbie Simon and Jamie North, seriously it doesn't get much better than this!

 It was totally dark other than all of the cell phone lights, everyone was busy texting and facebooking about everything we were doing!  Such fun!!

 Love these ladies!!  Laura Timmons (this lady never takes a bad picture), Jamie North and Stephanie Dixon

Nick Regine, our guru!  We definitely paid attention when he talked!

Stephanie Dixion & Katie Hacker ( truly one of the most talented yet gracious people I know)

Our group of Ambassadors is an amazingly talented group whose talents are as varied and diverse as the cities and country's that we are all from. You have those that make stitching a bracelet or amazing necklace look so easy that you shake your head with wonder, others that can wire crochet a necklace, meet new friends and still be the life of the party all at the same time, some that are already so well known in our industry that they will amaze you with their graciousness, kind words and talent to the point that you are speechless. There are Ambassadors that are so talented that I have no doubt you will be hearing their names even more and more as time goes on........truly a wonderfully giving, talented and totally amazing group of SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Ambassadors that I am delighted to call my friends!
