The Journey Bead Retreat 2019

$250.00 USD

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.
