Itâ€™s back to back art fair time! On Sunday, September 27, I will be setting up shop in the Highland Art Park Center, where Aylaâ€™s Originals is hosting its Fall Bead Bazaar.
I’ve perused Ayla’s Wonderful World of Beads on numerous occasions and am thrilled to be part of the vendor line-up this year.
Seventeen vendors bring their best beading merchandise for your perusal, including: Aylaâ€™s Originals, Dakota Stones, Elka Designs, Hobo Glass, Kina Denton, Maikeâ€™s Marvels, Cynthia McEwen Design, Medusaâ€™s Stones, Midwest Maille, Mostly Buttons, Karen Ovington, Reith Collection, String a Strand on Wells, Diane Tarullo and Two Charming Chix.
You can browse handmade beads, discounted gemstones, vintage charms and adornments, strands of craft beads, pre-made jewelry, and jewelry tools.
Come see what I created with last year’s loot from 10am – 4pm on Sunday, September 27 at The Art Center, 1957 Sheridan Rd., Highland Park. Parking is free and the Metra station is Highland Park.
The Art Center is hosting Pastel Painters 2015, a group exhibition of imagery predominantly produced in the medium of pastel, created by the most elite pastel painters from across the country. Download the discount coupon here for $1 off the $4 entry fee.
I know some of you locals have been eye-ing my bangles, and this is your chance to select your very own beads. I will give you a $5 discount on your custom order at the fair when you by a strand of beads at the bazaar.
I picked up some of Elka Designsâ€™ strands at her recent trunk show in Aylaâ€™s Evanston store, and will be finishing some bangles based on Elkaâ€™s suggestions before Sunday.
Iâ€™m curious how this one will turn out. Get a sneak peek of my beaded jewelry on Etsy.
