Three Shows: To Bead True Blue - Colors of the Stone - Tucson Bead & Design Workshop Retreat will come together at Casino Del Sol for the Fall Tucson Gem Show, to form an unrivaled and unique bead, gem and jewelry show that is founded in artisanship.
The three shows run concurrently, Thursday through Sunday, September 5th - 8th 2019. While each show promotes artisanship, handcraft, and design in its unique way, they share a tradition of offering the public the widest range of artisan creations to be found anywhere and continue to attract a clientele from around the world.
Together they host 700 artisan beadmakers, jewelry designers, textile weavers, ceramists, lapidaries, clothiers, glass workers, enamelists, metalsmiths, mineral dealers, merchants, and wholesale suppliers, who are committed to traditional skills, natural colors and sustainable materials.
The Tucson Bead & Design Workshop Retreat features 225 workshops taught by artists in residence --subjects including jewelry photography, art clay, leather embossing, bronze metal clay, fused glass, wire working, exploring niobium, loomwork, mixed media, found object jewelry, champlevé, glass bead making, torch soldering, and copper electroforming.
Get a head start on the end of year season; discover unusual, rare and hard to find components from the East Coast wholesale jewelry making supply companies; find handmade, individual creations, such as lampwork beads, hand-cut gemstones, upcycled clothing, felted hats, artwear, hand-dyed silks, raku beads, painted linen, hand tooled leather, eco-dyed fabrics, hand-sewn skirts, and handmade textiles.
Shows are open to the public with no admission charge, with free unlimited Show Parking, and a special room rate of $129/night for resort rooms.
