Meet & Munch among Beads

April's Meet & Munch takes us to A Bella Bead, a charming bead store in Glen Ellyn. Open since October 2013, the store offers beading supplies for jewelry making, including loose beads, strand beads, clasps, findings, Swarovski crystals and lamp beads.

Owner Sharon Dotson will offer a short demo of her Crystal Clay class (doesn't that sound intriguing?) after which we will network. If you have a broken piece of jewerly Sharon can evaluate it to see if she can fix it, or she might show us how to fix a piece ourselves.

The store also offers handmade jewelry for special occasions. A Bella Bead also provides a venue for beading classes, such as Resin Jewelry, Wiring, Stamping, Beading and Crystal. You can come in and fix jewelry at open table sessions, or throw a private BYOB party.

Join us as we learn more about beading and spark our creativity with sparkly, colorful jewelry accoutrements.

    Loved Sharon's Crystal Clay demonstration and the business-management heart-to-heart we had.

    I was just told that there is parking in the back of the building if we cannot find any in front. There will be a door with "Banyan Tree Mall" we can walk through.
    Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow.
