Beads, beads and more beads! A glittering, glowing Aladdin’s cave! Excitement is in the air as Thebe Exhibitions and Events Group proudly present the all-new Beadex 2007. A first for South Africa, Beadex 2007 takes the floor at the Sandton Convention Centre on Friday, 11th to Sunday, 13th of May 2007 from 10h00 to 18h00 daily.
Beadex will host loads of exhibitors showing everything and anything to do with beads. There will be events and interactive beading for complete beginners as well as for the real masters. It is a fabulous opportunity to learn about beads from creation to completion.
Stock up with all your requirements at this “one stop” beading market place, from equipment to tools, and from seed beads to Chinese beads, ropes of pearls and Swarovski crystals.
Organisers of South Africa’s first ever beading and jewellery show, Beadex, have arranged an extensive workshop programme, designed to stimulate entrepreneurship and skills development.
Featuring over 30 teachers and in excess of 60 different courses, the workshop programme provides opportunities for novice and experienced beaders to extend their repertoire of technical and creative skills.
The workshop programme offers innovative beading projects including clothing, décor items and local and international jewellery techniques. They are also planning to offer business courses for budding bead industry entrepreneurs who wish to take their creative talent to new heights.
