Do you dream about using a torch to fire transparent or opaque enamels? Interested in a stirrup riveted biker chain bracelet to go with your hog? Are you craving to wield a jeweler's saw with mad skill? Want to make your own steampunk adornments? Does art-glass clay ignite your creative fires like a white hot kiln? Longing to perusing gorgeous crystals that illuminate your electromagnetic field while you shop? Or, perhaps, you find pleasure in stringing your own beads.
If so, then join the many kindred artsy types who will sojourn to the Convention Center for Santa Fe Beadfest, March 15-18th.
The room will buzz like a hive of happy bees as artists collect the precious pieces they need to craft winsome things of beauty. The eye-candy alone is worth the price of admission. Beads and semi-precious stones from around the globe will fill the tables with vivid colors rich enough to make your eyes water.
Over 100 classes will be offered in half or full day time frames. These will sell out, so check the schedule and register early!
Some of the many workshop options include; working with CALDERESQUE WIRE
; fashioning your own CRYSTAL PAGODA NECKLACE
; using substantial gauge wire to make a HEAVY METAL NECKLACE
; making STACK RINGS WITH POLYMER CLAY
that can be elegant, tribal, or steampunk; or learning to make a HINGED COPPER LOCKET
for your lapel.
So sign up for your favorite workshops, buy the goods you need to be on your way to blissful creating, and mingle with the beadfest folks...a special assembly of people who make the world a more beguiling place!
