Bead Scoop: Sonoma Glass Art & Bead Festival

Ceramic Heart Lariat by Merit Cape There is an upcoming show coming soon to Sonoma Valley, CA that I wanted to tell you about. The Soft Flex Company is hosting the Sonoma Glass Art & Bead Festival August 9-12, 2007.

Classes are provided by Bead Unique Magazine and start Aug 9th. One of the classes is shown above: the Ceramic Heart Lariat by Merit Cape. This class project features handcrafted art buttons by Earthenwood Studio. I think it is a unique use of buttons integrated into a necklace!
