The Santa Monica Bead and Design Show will showcase a fine selection of handcraft design at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel. The three day show begins Friday, April 26 and goes through Sunday, April 28, 2019, and presents 150 exhibits of artisan jewelry, beads, gemstones — including handcrafted textiles, clothing, and accessories.

This is the first time the show has been held at the 5-star Fairmont Hotel, and the unrivaled list of exhibitors —selected artists, artisans and tradespeople —along with the dazzling handcrafted products they offer, will be in sync with this historic property, and its spectacular setting above the scenic bluffs of Santa Monica beach.

The products offered here will reflect artisan design, originality, traditional skill, natural colors, and sustainable materials —everything from bold eclectic statement pieces to handmade gold earrings, art beads to antique trade beads, silk painting to fine art canvas painting, ceramics to champlevé, fused glass to found object jewelry —each one being an original work of art.

Each artisan exhibitor is selected for review and carefully juried according to artistic standards and chosen by invitation only. Many original jewelry and design pieces are offered exclusively here at the show. Attendees will have an exceptional opportunity to meet people who actually make beads, handcraft jewelry, cut and polish gems, and design art clothing; and to take part in one of many Atelier workshop demonstrations, produced by Artisans on Hand.

Santa Monica Bead and Design Show brings together the elements for an unusually dynamic and interactive shopping experience, with the finest selection of artisan jewelry and handcraft, at Fairmont Miramar Hotel, Santa Monica, Friday – Sunday, April 26 – 28, 2019, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Open to the public —every is welcome.
