by Missy Stearns

Head to the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA, August 19-23 for Bead Fest Philly, the largest jewelry-making show on the east coast!

Bead Fest is the best resource for any jewelry maker, with incredible shopping opportunities from a wide array of vendors, plus five full days of workshops taught by the best artist-instructors.

Bead Fest is the ideal opportunity to learn metalwork–or perfect the skills you already have–from renowned metalworker Eva Sherman. The talent behind 13 Rings: Using Wire Coiling, Wire Bezeling, and Organic Wire Techniques, Eva prefers to work in an organic and unstructured style. She'll share her expertise with you in four different Bead Fest workshops.
