Earthenwood Studios – Booth 1227 Ceramic beads and pendants with natural and fantasy themes. Ask about her fabulous new Toolbox Treasures!
Zoa Art – Booth 8 – one of a kind beads glass and precious metal clay.
Thornberg Bead Studios – Booth 430 – Whimsical glass beads (including flying pigs!) and wire demonstrations.

Sharon Peters Silly Beads – Booth 1219 – They live up to their names!
Pam & Heather Wynn – Booth 1235 – Polymer clay beads in color combinations sure to inspire!
