Nova Gold FlyerStar's Sunday Swap

Star’s Beads is excited to bring you a mini bead and craft bazaar called Pop Up Washington, A Bead & Craft Social, with a mission to spread the joy of jewelry and creative arts, in the Washington DC, metropolitan area. The show is scheduled to be held September 17th and 18th at the Vienna Moose Lodge. This is a perfect location with parking, food and is located across from Nottoway Park near Nutley Street in Vienna, Virginia.

Saturday we are offering “Speed Beading” workshops. These are quick one hour workshops to allow you to try your hand at several different craft techniques, all in a single day! There are some extremely talented instructor/artists that teach around the country but come from this area so it is a great opportunity to meet them and get a taste of their style. See them all here: www.starsbeads.eventbrite.com

On Social Sunday, we will be hosting our well known Bead Swap, a “trade what you don’t need for something new” social. Click here for more details:https://www.facebook.com/events/894530540651416/

Throughout the weekend we will be offering open social tables so get your craft group and give yourselves a reason to get together! We will be hosting various social groups like Bead Therapy by the Northern Virginia Bead Society. Meet new people, do some beadings, and get inspired with all the creativity in the room. Want to host your own social table? Just e-mail starsbeads@gmail.com! This is a great chance to meet other crafters and find new social groups in our local area.

All these great festivities will be alongside a fantastic shows worth of beads and crafts, ALL weekend long. There will be a local goldsmith buying gold/silver, vendors selling goodies and a huge selection of specialty items brought in from across the world. https://www.facebook.com/events/294131947630644/

Let me introduce you to Heather Millican of Swoondimples. An amazing artist who strives to offer hope to those who may need encouragement. Heather is a polymer clay expert and her handmade pendants and components will be available at Star’s Beads starting April 15.

From the Artist:

“I am a lover of words and have a grand heart for the ones who feel too deeply, the brave, and those that find beauty in the mundane.

I am an art college graduate and currently live in Florida with my handsome husband, 4 young boys, and boston terrier, Ollie. I am surrounded by dudes.

All of her pendants and beads are made to order from polymer clay. Each piece is formed with polymer clay, handstamped, laden with texture and patina, wet sanded and buffed. “
