Bead Fest 2015

Bead Fest is quickly approaching, and I'm so excited to be part of it this year. This will be my first time teaching Bead Fest, and I'm really excited to meet all the other teachers. I look forward to being part of this community of like minded folks.

I am teaching many different classes: Plexiglas, resin, metalsmithing and more.

Learn how to make these cool resin and silver hoops!

Or these silver and bead stacking rings.

In addition to a wide variety of different classes, taught by lots of very talented jewelers, Bead Fest also has tons of venders selling tools, supplies and finished pieces.  I am slightly concerned about the amount of shopping I am bound to do, for Bead Fest Philadelphia is the biggest bead show on the East Coast. I'm doomed...

There are 3 dates for Bead Fest, and 2 locations. Here's the skinny on each:

Bead Fest Santa: Fe March 19-22

Bead Fest Spring: Oaks, Pennsylvania  April 9-12

Bead Fest Philadelphia: Oaks, Pennsylvania August19-23

Come check it out, learn new techniques, meet cool people, and get your shopping on...
