Inspiring Style: The Bead Show

My in-laws and I went to a local bead show not too long ago. The show comes around about three times a year and features hundreds of vendors who showcase their great beads and jewelry. They will even email you instructions on how to make certain pieces. Here is a taste of some of the great accessories.

Most of these are locket pendants and rings. How cool?
This is what I wore to the bead show!



Interesting 3-d inspired bead necklace and leaf earrings




I absolutely adored these bracelets. They were called Caterpillar bracelets because of how they were uniquely linked together.


My mother-in-law bought me this bib necklace as an early holiday gift. How sweet!
Do you like it?

Do you have any bead shows/jewelry shows in your town?
What do you think of these?

I would have loved that! Unique jewelry is my other weakness besides makeup. I have never seen a bead show in my area. I'll have to try and find one.

OH MY GOSH! This is like...paradise for me! I absolutely love making jewelry and working with beads. Ahh you're so lucky, I wish I could go to a bead show like that! :D

I adore the leaf earrings. <3 And you look cute in that outfit!

Thanks for the comment on my blog :) Yeah, I wrote an intense schedule, but it was meant to prove that writing 1,700 words in a day is possible EVEN WITH an intense schedule. Hope that makes sense. xD

Cool m-in-law! I love seeing stuff like this on Etsy. Only problem is I can't decide what to buy. I love them all!

Heidi said...

My boss would love this show- she makes jewelry. I think twice a year we have something similar, because she has mentioned it once or twice to me. Every Saturday during the tourist season in our town we have a craft type event where you can buy stuff from local stores and designers. It's pretty neat... :)

In India we do have shows like these and the ones featuring "hyderabadi pearls" are quite exquisite. the bracelet looks adorable

That bib necklace is gorgeous; you are going to look amazing when you rock that! There are never bead shows in my town - perhaps I should go searching for one; it sounds like a blast!! :)
