Dallas Winter Bead and Jewelry Show at Grapevine Convention Center
Shannon Sutlief Recommends
Oh, you think you’ll save money making your own jewelry — until you get a glimpse of all of this shiny. Seed, bugle, glass, crystal, faceted, lampwork and other types of beads will be for sale at wholesale prices, plus there will be jewelry-making supplies such as gemstones, chains, pearls, pendants, findings and tools, and ready-to-wear jewelry, watches and gifts. Need help to get started? Jewelry-making classes will be offered during the show. Take basic beading for $30 or basic wire wrapping for $45 (or both for $65), and take home a finished project from each class.
