Walnut Creek Bead & Design Show is bringing artisans to Walnut Creek Marriott on Friday, March 22 through Sunday March 24. The show promotes handcraft and jewelry design and hosts 200 artisan exhibits of handmade beads, artistic jewelry, gemstones, ceramic arts, clothing and textile design.
Come see the Walnut Creek Marriott transformed into a 25,000 square-foot exhibition of originality, natural color, organic texture, and sustainable materials - products reflecting artisan design and authentic handcraft, one-of-a-kind products not found elsewhere -- offered for the first time by the artisans themselves, and that can be purchased directly from artisans, designers and tradespeople.
Browse the many displays and find treasures and rarities such as curious antiquities, nomadic artifacts, and rare ethnographic objects; and unusual goods such as seed pearls, opals, painted shawls, porcelains, gold ribbons, jade, enamel inlay, plique-à-jour, handmade gold and silver pieces, eco-friendly fabrics, singular embellishments, and lampworked glass beads --the list goes on.
Workshops will be taught by artists-in-residence, which provide step-by-step instruction, in handcraft design projects such as jewelry design, art clay, wirework, stone setting, beadwork, leatherwork, hand knotting, micro chasing, and metal work.
Come and buy directly from artisans, designers and tradepeople March 22 - 24, 10am - 6pm, at the Marriott Walnut Creek, 2355 North Main St, Walnut Creek, CA 94596. Advanced admission tickets on sale $8 --or $10 at the door (good for all three days). The show is open to the public. Visit www.beadanddesign.com, follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
