Bead Bazaar

Our 2017 Bead Bazaar is over, but save the date for our 2018 Bead Bazaar on August 4 and 5!

Save the date for our 2017 Bead Bazaar!

This year’s Bead Bazaar will take place on Saturday and Sunday, August 5 and 6, at the Scottish Rite Event Center in Mission Valley!

Shop on Saturday from 10:00 A.M to 6:00 P.M

and on Sunday from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.

According to the January 2 issue of Accessories Magazine,  “accessories are getting the beaded treatment for Spring 2017. From earthly and natural colors to rich and aquatic hues, look to seed beads, glass beads and wood beads that are layered and wrapped. Embellishments range from tiny tassel to raw crystals and metal accents.” 

Our Bazaar is the perfect place to purchase materials and finished pieces of jewelry so you can create and wear all things beady in 2017 and beyond!

As a bit of background, our annual Bead Bazaar is our largest fundraiser, and 2017 marks the 18th year that we have put on the event.  Proceeds from the Bazaar help the SDBS support many activities throughout the year, including speakers and classes, community outreach, and our affiliation with the Mingei International Museum. Our Bazaar brings together finished jewelry from unique jewelry artists and vendors that provide quality merchandise for all your jewelry-making needs.
