Please join us as we explore together new beading skills and fine-tune
our personal points of view. Every bead has a story as does every
beader! What is your narrative? Come journey with Kate, Emily and
Janice as we each discover new directions and reconnect with
old and new friends.
The 2019 Third Annual Beadshop Bead Retreat in San Juan Bautista,
California promises to be an immersion in both beads and learning. We
will explore different facets and styles of jewelry-making. Students will
follow a path towards creating a finished design that includes techniques
from resin and mold-making to tassel construction. Along the way, we
will learn more about capturing our personal style via jewelry.
Breakout sessions include: Making your own Bullion, Fiber Tassel
Construction, Silicone Mold-Making and Resin, Styling Inspired by
Vintage Jewelry and unique wire components. Each student will create a
personal road map and travel through the weekend adding a variety of
techniques to their jewelry repertoire. Kate, Emily and Janice will share
their years of knowledge and skills along with demos
and one-on-one coaching.
Our Third Annual Bead Retreat at St. Francis Retreat Center has space for
just 24 participants. Since capacity is limited, we expect registration to fill

change and you cannot attend. You are also welcome to find someone to
take your spot. Sorry, we do not refund deposits and/or registration.
The retreat price includes 3 nites on-site lodging, all meals (full breakfast, lunch and dinner), and instruction. Supples and transportation to and from the retreat venue are the responsibility of the attendee.
