Bead Fest Philadelphia Spring
Darlene of D7 Studio represents Marsha Neal Studio through various bead shows in the Northeast US, and this weekend is at Bead Fest Philadelphia!
I worked all week to get my stock from her all cleaned up and ready for this huge show. I took all the beads that I had paired up and put them onto pipe cleaners instead.
Here is a shot of the D7 Studio booth #424 where you can find my items.
And you will also find Darlene and Nolly! What great gals!
I took all of my pendants from previous years and marked them ALL down to $5 destash prices.
I also bagged up tiny pendant pairs, medium pendants, and the large pendant with matching small ones into baggies for $10 each.
AND when you purchase $50 in my destash pieces, you get to pick out an additional $5 destash for free!
These are priced to move!
Cabs and buttons are also on the destash markdown…
I am just ready to move onto this next creative phase of my life…
Nolly of Nolly’s Folly, is an amazing glass bead artist.
Darlene carries Nolly’s work with her at bead shows too.
I picked up some of her pieces today to see if I can come up with some cross over designs as samples and maybe kits for D7Studio.
We came across some awesome favorites like HMB Studios (booth 531)
Brenda Sweder (booth 50) and her “Now That’s a Jig!”, where I ordered some extra peg form sets for my jig I got from her at Bead Fest last August.
And it’s always great fun to run into Erica (at Dakota Stones booth 222 & 224).
And more bead friends that are like family: Amy & Barbara from Artful Bead Studio (booth 124).
I just love their jewelry designs and mad bead weaving design skills. I have bought a few finished pieces and kits over the years from these ladies…
And a quick shot of the bead tray that was fully stocked this morning, that I will need to refill for Darlene for her upcoming shows! thanks to the lady that bought a bunch of my pieces – You Rock!!! Thank You!
As this was a quick drop off stock and shop day, my friend Jenny and I got through the show in record time. I really miss going to bead shows to sell my work. I enjoy the beads, but really love the people there (feels like family!)…
I hope you get a chance to get out to Bead Fest Philadelphia.
