Humblebeads Art Bead Show & Book Signing

Humblebeads Art Bead Show & Book Signing     
Saturday, April 21      10 am – 4 pm

Bead artist and author Heather Powers will be selling her latest beads at Stony Creek Bead on April 21st.

Heather's beads are inspired by nature - birds, woodland creatures, tree branches, leaves, and sundries from the sea.  Her beads have been featured on HGTV, in Stringing, BeadStyle, and Beadwork magazines, and more.

Heather will be signing copies of her book, Jewelry Designs from Nature.  If you already have this book, you know how great it is.  If not, then we will have copies for you to purchase.  Heather’s book has a collection of 32 projects – necklaces, bracelets, and earrings – that combine easy jewelry-making techniques with spectacular components and artisan-made beads.  You will learn how small details can elevate a design from ‘simple’ to ‘striking!
