| WAUKESHA, Wis. -- Anyone with a passion for jewelry, fashion or art should experience the 2008 Bead&Button Show, June 1-8, at the Midwest Airlines Center in Milwaukee. |
No event in the country celebrates jewelry making and its participants better than the annual Bead&Button Show. Last year's Show welcomed more than 14,000 visitors from all 50 states and 26 countries.
June 6-8 the Bead&Button Show will transform the Midwest Airlines Center's third floor into an international marketplace as more than 370 vendors from around the world show off and sell their jewelry pieces and one-of-a-kind beads. For those three days, shoppers enjoy the unique opportunity to purchase handcrafted jewelry from the artist who created it.
If shoppers can't find the jewelry piece they're looking for, they can learn to make it during one of the more than 530 classes available at all skill levels. Register in advance or at the Show.
Bead&Button magazine and its parent company Kalmbach Publishing Co. of Waukesha, Wis., produce the Bead&Button Show.
