Bead Fest Spring


It’s time for Bead Fest Spring in Philadelphia!  It’s a bittersweet event this year because after 10 years, the show is ending. I will be in booth 414 so stop by!  If you do plan to attend, please use the $5 admission coupon here.  If you are thinking you already have a coupon, you might want to double check.  Admission is $15 and the coupon from BeadFest directly is only $3 off, this one, below, is $10 off.  That’s more money to spend on beads!

I will be at 2 more shows this year; Bead and Button and BeadFest Fall.  Dates for these are on my Show Schedule page.  In between, you can find my work on Facebook.  I am on Facebook as Julie Miller Glass and I post in the following, auction-style, groups:

These groups are private so you will need to join first.  Please make sure you review the rules before participating.  I usually post on Wednesday evenings and through the weekend.  Check it out!

I hope to see you soon!

Hello and Happy New Year!


I am hard at work in the studio getting ready for this year’s shows I can’t believe that BeadFest Spring is just 3 months away.  I can tell I’m starting to sweat the deadline when I noticed that it’s a leap year so I get an extra day.
Some of you have contacted me about my Etsy store being closed and I wanted to take a minute to explain that decision.  I have been on Etsy for nearly 10 years now (including my first shop, Jewelry by Jules) so it wasn’t an easy decision.  Between the upkeep and profitability (specifically, the lack of profitability in the past few years), I decided to expend my energies elsewhere for now.

Specifically, I am selling on Facebook in two lampwork groups; Lampwork Bead Market and Handmade Lampwork Beads for Sale.  I usually list on Wednesday or Thursday at about 8 pm EDT.
I will still be attending BeadFest Spring, Bead & Button, and BeadFest Fall.  Please check back for updates and discount coupons.  I also welcome custom orders, just let me know what you need.

Finally, given the response, I will work on posting items for sale here as well.  It won’t be on the scale of my Etsy store but perhaps a page for beads and one for finished jewelry.  Please let me know what you would like to see here.

Thank you!

BeadFest Spring


It's time to come out of the studio and bring all of the goodies I've made over the winter to the shows!  First up, BeadFest Spring in Philadelphia.  I've been assigned booth 414 and will have a new line to offer; sea glass!  Here are a few of the items I made to inspire you:

I will also have the usual pretties:

A pair of my etched denim hollows with findings from Pegasus Imports (hint, they will be in booth 431)
I will have pre-made sea shell globe necklaces like this one and empty globes for your own creations

View the whole collection at my Flickr page JulieMillerGlass.

Here is a discount coupon worth $10 off your admission, see you there!

Thank you to everyone who visited me at all of the shows this season; turnout was great! 

Now, I'm going to take a little vacation to one of my favorite places, Seattle!    I will be returning about mid-September so my Etsy store will re-open then.  I will be restocking my store and torching up projects for next season (Bead Fest April will sneak up fast).  If you saw something at the show but can't find it in my store, just let me know, and I will move it to the front of the line. 

Here are some pictures from my last trip a couple of years ago...

Bead Fest Philadelphia Fall

It's the end of the show year for me later this month.  Bead Fest Philadelphia will be my last stop for 2014 and it's gone by quickly.  I am cleaning and arranging inventory to get ready for the August 22nd-24th show.  I will be in booth 557 this year.  That's in the right side, artist side of the hall. I was not able to secure a 2 table booth at this show so my booth will be crammed with goodies!

Here is your $5 admission pass.  This gets you in the door for just $5 instead of the regular $15.

New, just for this show, a limited number of hollow pairs and focals in these new colors:
Sets in a variety of colors and styles:


Plenty of sandblasted focals sold individually:

See you soon!

Shows, Shows, Shows!

I've been quiet lately, yeah, maybe a little too quiet but I swear I've been staying out of trouble, mostly.  I had been hoping to add another big bead show to my schedule and suddenly, I did!  I will be vending at Bead Fest this Spring, which is, oh by the way, just 2 weeks away.  I am making goodies like crazy.  I don't have my booth number yet so stay tuned.

Also, if you are attending Bead & Button and would like free admission to the bead marketplace from Friday through Sunday of the show, here you are:
