11/18/16 – Here come the holidays! You can find some of our finished necklaces and DIY kits here on our website, but this time of year we also showcase in our live events many one-of-a-kind/few-of-a-kind pieces that never make it to the website. We’ve got a full schedule of venues in Massachusetts over the coming month, so if you’re in the area stop by and see all the new stuff!
Black Friday (11/24) through Christmas Eve (12/24), come visit the Artisans Holiday Popup Store at 173 Newbury St. in Back Bay, Boston. (Their website gives a different location because there are two!) The store is open every day 11am – 7pm and Kristin or Len will be on site to answer questions most days Thurs-Sun.
The weekend of December 3-4 you can catch up with us at booth #65 of the South Boston Holiday Market, at the Innovation & Design Building at 23 Drydock Ave, Boston. Stop by Saturday or Sunday 11am-6pm.
Saturday 12/10, we’ll have a table at the Unique Art & Gift / Glass Vendor Day at the Sprinkler Factory at 38 Harlow St. in Worcester, MA. This show runs 10-4pm on Saturday only.
On the final pre-Christmas weekend, come to Salem, MA and stop by booth #46 of the Salem Holiday Market in the Old Town Hall, 32 Derby Square. Show hours are Saturday 12/17 noon-6pm and Sunday 12/18 noon-5pm.
And of course you can still find a rotating selection of necklaces and kits at the Whiffle Tree Gallery in Billerica, MA. Hours are 10am-5pm Tues-Sat and noon-5pm Sundays.
Solar powered rechargeable LED illumination system
- Finished jewelry, DIY kits and individual components available.
- A single LED illuminates the focal bead in each necklace.
- Solar-rechargeable battery pack (“power clasp”) mounts between a magnetic necklace clasp to provide power. (No batteries to change!)
- One power clasp can illuminate necklaces interchangeably.
- Necklaces can be worn with or without the power clasp. (Power clasp adds one inch to total length.)
- Created by jewelry designers for jewelry designers, our DIY assembly uses tools and methods familiar to beaders, like screw crimps, tube crimps and multi-strand stringing wire.
