Newport Beach business owner Ira Israel doesn't have a shop where he can show off his Venetian glass beads, so events like the Gem Faire are vital to his operation. Much of Israel's business is conducted over the Internet. He said he brings his products to about 25 traveling shows per year. The Gem Faire, a three-day bead, jewelry and crystal showcase that visited the Orange County Fairgrounds Friday, Saturday and Sunday, is one of his favorite events.

Karen S. Kim NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- Karine Grigoryan, 29, was industriously stringing pieces of blue glass and silver-colored beads Friday afternoon at the Glendale Assn. for the Retarded. "It's hard, but it's fun," said the Glendale resident, adding that she likes stringing the purple beads the best. "I love purple. It's my favorite." The production of beaded necklaces, which started last week, represents the association's first business venture.

Good morning readers. Today is Monday, March 10. As you settle into the work week, check out these headlines from around the area:  Four strands of colorful beads dangled from Christopher Wilke's IV pole as he sat on the couch in his hospital room overlooking Los Angeles. The yellow beads - more than two dozen of them - represented the number of nights the 12-year-old Burbank resident has spent in the hospital in the last two months....

Authority has an interesting definition of victory At the end of your article regrading the settlement between Burbank and the Bob Hope Airport ("Burbank, airport make their peace," June 24), Charles Lombardo, president of the Airport Authority, is quoted as saying that the agreement is "win, win, win." Let me see if I understand the agreement as reported: Bob Hope Airport will, for at least 10 years, continue to be underutilized and underserve the great Valley community; the Authority will purchase the private parking operator and raise parking rates; and Burbank noise levels will somewhat abate for residents (most of whom moved in knowing full well an airport was there)

Dining With Duvall by Lynn Duvall My best friend, Judie, used to be a jewelry designer. She no longer makes her own jewelry. These days Judie haunts gem shows for unique artisan pieces and fine gemstones. A few months ago I was tagging along behind Judie as she combed the aisles of a gem show at the Pasadena Convention Center. We usually go to Santa Monica, where it's horribly crowded and steamy hot, inside giant white tents. For once, I was not crammed in with hordes of shoppers, dying of the heat.

Barbara Canady gets a twinkle in her eye as she unwraps the tissue paper from the antique Christmas ornament and places it gingerly on the purple terry cloth next to a bevy of others in her collection. Most of them are mouth-blown glass ornaments made in Germany from the early 1900s to 1930s, said the retired Glendale High School librarian. Perhaps the most breathtaking is the quartet of mercury glass reindeer ranging from 3 to 6 inches tall. After the figure was completed, a mercury solution was swirled around inside the body cavity and the excess spilled out, leaving a silvery shine.
