More Info

The handcrafted artisan products presented at SANTA MONICA BEAD & DESIGN SHOW are showcased around bead and design --handcrafted beads, hand-sewn clothing, and hand-cut gemstones. The show is held on October 19 through 21, at Le Meridien Delfina Hotel, Santa Monica.
Hosting 150 artisans and tradespeople chosen by juried invitation, the show gives buyers an exceptional opportunity to shop an unrivaled selection of artisan handcraft, jewelry design, and creative products --and to meet the people who actually make beads, design jewelry, cut and polish gems, and sew clothing.
SANTA MONICA BEAD & DESIGN SHOW exhibitors are selected for artistic ability, with many original pieces offered exclusively at the show. Recently discovered exhibitors include Beads & Crafts, Trappings of Time, Diana March, East West Best, Moon & Star Gems, Southern Sky Opals, and Sacred Laughter --as well as its noted exhibitors --Garden of Beadin, Suzi Click, Goddess, Bead Resources, Pema Arts, and Artrade.
The jewelry selection is vast --ranging from bold and eclectic statement pieces to fine handcrafted gold --along with an abundance of beads ranging from one-off glass lampworked beads, to African trade beads --each one being an original work of art.
Although the focus is on beads and jewelry, SANTA MONICA BEAD & DESIGN SHOW encompasses all forms of wearable handcrafted media, handwoven fabrics, designer accessories, upcycled clothing, ceramics, and ethnographic art, which are handcrafted to the highest standards.
The show presents attendees with the option of taking one of the hands-on workshops taught by artisans-in-residence --to learn (or improve their) artisan skills. Workshops start at $20, and provide step-by-step instruction for all skill levels. Subjects include jewelry design, wirework, beadmaking, silver art clay, metal work, embossing, crystal setting, and hand knotting.
Le Meridian Delfina, 530 Pico Blvd, Santa Monica. October 19-21, Fri-Sun, 10am-6pm. Advanced online tickets are $8, or $10 at the door (good for all three days). Buy from artisans and tradespeople at excellent prices. Visit
