Exhibitors offer high quality glass beads (vintage and new), crystals, handmade beads, cabochons, gemstones, silk, jewelry wire, clasps and much more — all that a jewelry lover’s heart could desire! Demonstrations and workshops are held at various booths. Jewelry projects and material kits are also available. Book a spot in one of the exclusive workshops and let experienced designers teach you techniques such as beading, micro macramé, soutache and others.

As usual, the live jewelry fashion show and exhibit of international jewerly designs will bring an air of sophistication to the fair. Stylish jewelry trends, from the delicate and dainty to the bold statement pieces, have been raised to a form of art by fashion designers such as Coco Chanel. At this fair, bead and jewelry enthusiasts from Europe and overseas will kindle their passion of DIY. Ask, learn, talk shop, marvel — and make new friends!

Messe Stuttgart is a partner and host of this event. It stands out for its lavish and pleasant halls and the excellent travel connection: The airport, train connections, public bus lines and hotels are all within walking distance, and the Autobahn leads directly to the front door. Also, the Messe Stuttgart team is known for its  efficient service.

The event takes place from April 21–23, 2017. This is typically a mild month for the area. If you can, plan a trip to the surrounding area. Explore a country side dotted with vineyards. Spend a day at one of the traditional timber-framed towns such as Tubingen. Or visit the famous jewelry museum in Pforzheim only an hour drive away. There is much to see and do.
