Santa Monica Bead & Design Show

Everyone is welcome –bohemians, designers, and bead collectors. Explore the handmade arts, and visit 150 artisan shops under one roof. Relax at the bar —socialize with other artful-minded souls —or watch designers and craftspeople demonstrate their work.

Shop and buy direct from the source at prices that eliminate the middleman –one-of-a-kind accessories including art jewelry, gems, lampwork beads, vintage and upcycled clothing, eco-dyed fabrics, handwoven textiles, embellishments, resources, and mixed media.
