2018 Bead Shows

I LOVE BEAD SHOWS!!! Don’t you?!

Shopping at a Bead Show is the perfect time to hang out and shop with your friends that are into beads as much as you are (leave anyone at home that does not like to walk all day bending over looking at beads – they will thank you for it and it will gain you sanity).

If you go alone, you will be able to experience the bliss of shopping for exactly what you want all day!


I sell my beads in person at few of the larger bead shows every year. You can find my friend Darlene of D7 Studio selling some of my pieces at her beads show tables here in the Northeast US.

Here are the 2018 shows I have lined up so far!
