Pasadena Bead and Design Show
July 30 – August 2, 2009 Pasadena Bead and Design Show is a semi-annual exposition that showcases compelling design and handwork, from traditional to contemporary. The upcoming event is located at:

The Hilton Pasadena,
168 South Los Robles Avenue,
Pasadena, California

on July 30 through August 2, 2009, and will be the fourth show since January 2008. If you are a designer, art patron, collector, or design-savvy person, or if you are an owner of a gallery or boutique looking for an opportunity to network with artists and artisans, you will not want to miss Pasadena Bead and Design Show.

The show represents three hundred exhibitors, each selected for quality handwork design in art jewelry, bead making, gold and silversmithing, lapidary, textiles, glass arts, enameling, ceramics, art couture, designer components, embellishments, handwovens, wearable art, metalwork, antiquities, clay arts, collectibles, jewelry trade supplies, and interior décor. Many Pasadena Bead and Design Show exhibitors reflect several generations of artisans, while others have spent upwards of forty years developing skills, reviving lost techniques, working with antique hand tools, and acquiring national and international reputations.

We also would like to announce the first Celebration with Wine Friday, to be held at the Hilton Pasadena on July 31, 2009, from 6:30 – 8:30 PM. The theme of this event is “How to Develop Style with Artwear”, and renowned designer Suzi Click, will host and moderate a fashion show focused around the clothing and jewelry designs of featured artists. A $35 admission price to CWF includes admission to the show for all 4 days. Wine, coffee, soft drinks, and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

The goal of Pasadena Bead and Design Show is to present something new and dynamic, organized around the theme of traditional hand-work, not as a single or consistent style or time frame, but as an exposition of hand-work from various cultures, mixing ancient and modern, from thousand-year-old carved amber beads to contemporary wearable art.

The January 2009 show was bustling with attendees –merchants, buyers, business owners, art lovers, and collectors. According to promoters of the show –“It was successful beyond our expectations…with a robust attendance.” There will be workshops in art clay silver, jewelry design and marketing, bead making, polymer clay, chainmaille, mixed media and found object art, wirework, silk painting, textile art, metalwork, hand knotting, and kumihimo, along with free seminars and forums.

The show is open to the public and wholesale buyers, register online or at the door. $10 admission (good all four days). For registration, exhibitor, product, and workshop lists, and parking information, go to:

Celebration with Wine Friday
the Pasadena Bead And Design Show How to Develop Style with Artwear July 31, 2009 6:30–8:30 PM Learn the art of personalizing your style with artistically visual artwear, at the Pasadena Bead and Design Show’s first Celebration with Wine Friday, hosted by Suzi Click, who will moderate a fashion show of clothing and jewelry of featured artists including Art Heaven by Sharon Cipriano, Antique Artistry by Kathleen Caid, Esmeralda Designs by Christina Bjenning, Sandra Francour Designs by Sandra Francour, Urban Organics by Carol Ryerson and Valerie Boles and Unforgettable Vintage by Denise Morden, among others. A panel of women designers will discuss the art of dressing and how to assemble elements that are consistent with your style:
1) Learn to identify your own style
2) Discover where to shop for extraordinary clothing and jewelry
3) Study artwear and learn how to transform a great piece using layers and accessories to make it casual or dressy
4) Apply these lessons and coordinate your clothing with your style for a complete look.

The moderator of the panel will be Suzi Click, designer of colorful ethnic bohemian clothing and advocate of Frida Kahlo’s theory to dress everyday like it was a fiesta. Panel members will include Gretchen Schields, jewelry designer, graphic designer and illustrator, well known for her illustrations of Folkwear patterns, who has also illustrated and written bestselling children’s books and a PBS animated TV series; Barbara Flood, actress and former model and muse to influential 60’s and 70’s designer Rudi Gernreich, stylist to film and television personalities with her great collection of art wear and vintage fashion; and Tzipora Hoynik, artist and designer of unique metal and stone jewelry, wall sculptures, hats that combine vintage tribal fabrics and fake fur, and an “art car” for the 2007 Burning Man Festival.
