If you are an artist who has not exhibited at the Bead and Button Show in Milwaukee, they have a great opportunity for you!

Last year they promoted several of their artists who had never been to the show. They really enjoyed introducing the artists’ work and the artists were pleased as well!

This year they are seeking submissions from any bead artist who has never shown their work at Bead and Button.  They will choose five (5) artists to exhibit on a consignment basis.  These artists will receive extra attention and separate displays as they are introduced to an international clientele.

Artists must make pendants or other focal beads in ceramic, raku, glass, polymer clay, precious metal clay, metal or organic materials.   Artists will be chosen on quality, creativity and originality.  They will choose a variety of media.  The advertising will include an announcement that these artists are new to Bead and Button. Deadline for submissions is March 15, 2014.  Sorry, but they are only set up to work with artists from the United States at this time.

If you are interested in this opportunity, email Chris at Chris@theartbead.com for submission details including a sample copy of the consignment contract and comments from last year’s artists.   If you have a Gmail email account, please provide them with a different email address or your Etsy link. They are looking forward to hearing from you and seeing your work!

This announcement is being provided by The Art of the Bead! Visit www.theartbead.com to learn more about this opportunity.
