We had a blast at Bead&Button, as usual!!
And, it was Livi’s first time, just a week before she turned 1!
Thanks again Mimi Gardner for the cute owl, she loves it.
We had a brand new look to our booth, we sold some of our favorite Natural Brass, Arte Metal, Artisan Copper & our NEW Artisan Pewter findings, Patinas, Deco Dies, Wire and A LOT of tools, especially our popular 1-Step Looper! We also had a large selection of one-of-a-kind Vintaj gallery jewelry pieces at great prices. Jess & Mackie both taught classes which covered many Vintaj Patina techniques and more. Kelsey Lawler from BeadStyle magazine took Jess’s Vintaj Altered Metal Class. She writes about the fun time she had here in a show wrap-up post on their blog
. Thanks to all that shopped in our booth and took classes… It’s always great seeing friends and making new ones, we look forward to seeing you again next year!
Here are some pics from the show, enjoy!
Doug, Nancy, Dan & Melissa did a great job in the booth! They enjoyed working with customers, suggesting products and demonstrating.
Wendy, Mackie, Jess & Livi had fun looking for cool products, inspiring us to incorporate with Vintaj to share with you soon! We also stopped by our Ocean Surf Art Bead Partners booth, Trinket Foundry to show them the pieces we made with their beautiful sea glass. That’s not it… we picked up two more rounds of art beads from upcoming partners for summer/fall themes, can’t wait to start designing!
Now that’s a jig!
Brenda Schweder’s jig is AWESOME! We can’t wait to share some wire techniques with our different metal colors. Technique videos and tutorials coming soon!
We LOVE C-Koop Enamels!
Sara Lukkonen is one talented lady. We have been designing with her gorgeous enamel beads for years and she had a great new selection at the show. Click on the photo to visit her website.
Leather is a perfect complement to Vintaj!
We’ll be having fun making unique components from our product line to create statement bracelets. Click on photo to visit the Bella Venetian Beads website.
Once we have projects, videos, and tutorials with our new finds we will post them here on the blog. Time to get creative!
