Beadphoria goes to the Bead and Button Show in Milwaukee, WI from May 31 – June 7, 2009 for the over 580 beading and jewelry making classes available to attendees.  There are so many good classes open to all skill levels, it’s a challenge to choose! Like a plate full of cookies, ever thing looks so yummy! 

Most of the projects in the beading and jewelry making classes are completed during the session. I, Suzann Sladcik Wilson, came home with some silver pieces that I made in a Precious Metal Clay class, a pearl bracelet along with a certification from Rio Grande in pearl knotting, and a gorgeous Swarovski Crystal bracelet from a class with my favorite beading instructor, Katie Hacker.

The Bead and Button Show classes also let you try new beading techniques. Whether you are interested in bead stringing, jewelry wire work, bead weaving, polymer clay, metal jewelry making, glass, or even how to buy a kiln to make beads in, there is a class for you! This year Beadphoira will be taking beading and jewelry making classes in stamping of metal, color theory for jewelry artists, cold connections for jewelry metalwork, and Black Diamond Chain presented by Beadalon. Where else can you find such different and intriguing beading and jewelry making classes under one roof?

In our next Blog, we will continue with why Beadphoria takes beading and jewelry making classes at The Bead & Button Show. Why do you take beading and jewelry making classes? I would love to hear!
