Santa Barbara, CA (March 4, 2015) Garan-Beadagio’s Bead Elements and Design Show (BEADS), will be held at the Fess Parker Doubletree in Santa Barbara on March 27 - 29, 2015. The artists, artisans, and merchants chosen by juried application and by invitation will be offering their latest designs.
Ancient handmade beads gave the wearer a personal momentum, a sense of being pulled into seasonal forces and rhythmical cycles. BEADS will carry on the traditions, passed down for generations, of artisans employing natural materials, handmade skills and techniques that produce one-of-a-kind, works of art.
The show promises to create a buzz with its location and with an unequaled selection of artisan beads and jewelry, gemstones, gold & silver, ceramics, wearable art, designer components, artisan supplies, metalwork, textile and fiber arts, handsewn clothing, collectibles, and antiquities.
