Beads featured at the show include vintage and contemporary pieces made from glass, stone, metal, pearl and porcelain. In addition to a large selection of beads, vendors will also have buttons, charms and beaded jewelry for purchase. This year the event will also offer instructional classes.
The goal of the show is to bring a wonderful variety of beads and findings to the local community for their shopping pleasure.
“When I started, there were no bead shows. There were only gem shows or gift shows,” said event organizer and bead enthusiast Ava Motherwell.
The Lynnwood event is one of the many shows Motherwell puts on around the country each year. Other show locations include New York, California and Oregon.
Admission is $6 and is valid for all three days of the show. The event hours are:
- Friday 12 pm-7 pm
- Saturday 10 am-6 pm
- Sunday 11 am-4 pm
