Pasadena Bead & Design Show

The Bead & Design show is a one of a kind event. There will be exhibits, workshops, wearable art, handmade beads, designer components, glass art, embellishments, jewelry, art culture, metalwork, handwovens, gems, collectables, and decorative arts.

The show highlights include 300 artisan booths, galleries, merchant displays, design performances, and workshops. Attendees come from across the US and twenty-two foreign countries to shop for not only beads, but for jewelry, clothing, hats, textiles, accessories, wearable art, and interior decor. There is something for everyone.

Days & Time: The entire Bead show goes from Jan. 17 - 20, Thursday thru Sunday, 10:00am - 6:00pm each day. We will meet Sunday, Jan 20 @ 11:00am for this MSK event.

Registration: The show is open to the public.  Admission is $10 per person (one ticket allows you to attend all four days). Children under 18 are free.  You can register online with payment or pay at the door.

Workshops & Classes: These fill up quickly.  Some require a fee to attend, others are free.   Registering for a workshop, in advance, is highly recommended. Note: The two necklaces shown are from the workshops being offered.

Parking: Hilton Pasadena valet parking will be available for a special rate of $6 a day, with self-parking also available at $6 a day. Paseo Colorado Shopping Plaza, which is a five minute walk from the hotel, is $2/hour.  Street parking is also available.

------------------

I craft and teach jewelry making classes on occasion. These shows display what's new, what's hot and what's fun. Since it's nearly impossible to see all the exhibits in one day, I plan on attending the Bead show two, three, or maybe even all four days. The $10 admission fee is good all 4 days.  No need to purchase another ticket if you decide to attend more than one day.

I attend this bead show everytime it comes into town (January & July). My favorites are the numerous free hands-on workshops, the wearable art, the free "make & take" pieces and the ease of visiting more than 300 booths, galleries, and displays, in one location. 

Hope you can attend.  I'll be there.

    Good morning my sisters! I look forward in meeting you all, I had a few questions, but the above description answered them. I wanted to see if kids could come because I have my niece-god baby, and my mother, based in the info given I believe that they can; I hope I am correct on this?

    Here is the Black and White copy of the brochure. This should help those who had trouble printing out the colored one. http://www.pasadenabeadanddesignshow.com/brochure_bw.pdf

    Hi Dee! :) Are you all meeting up on Sunday? Or, is this a no-host event? I think that I can go on Saturday, but not on Sunday. I didn't want to keep anyone waiting around for me on Sunday. Should I remove myself from the RSVP? Thanks in adv for your reply.

      This is not a No Host event. I will be at the check in table a little before 11:00am. I'm also going on Saturday and Friday. Just not sure of the times on those days since I have other errands to run.

    Lunch? I've had a couple email me directly about lunch. The Paseo Shopping Plaza is a 5 min walk away. They have a lot of great places to either sit down and eat or grab a snack. Anyone hungry afterwards? We can just walk on over and grab a bite.

    The new color brochure is now available. Print out a copy when you have a chance. It lists the booths and booth numbers, a map, fee based & free classes, etc. http://www.pasadenabeadanddesignshow.com/brochure_color.pdf

    I used to make earrings. I would go by the bead store and buy the hooks, glue for clip ons and design all sorts of lovely earrings. I would like to take some of their free classes on how to make necklaces. This will be fun!
