Fraser Valley beaders converge on Langley

Cascades Casino Resort turns into a bead extravaganza this weekend with the Fraser Valley Bead Show running Friday through Sunday for the 10th year of the show. 

This is the ideal event for anyone interested in jewelry making, rocks and gems, and learning more about the popular craft. Classes feature topics such as making earrings, jewelry photography, and creating a number of different pendants. 

Whether a hobby, creating gift items, or a small business, this is the place to find artists and vendors interested in the craft and all the supplies needed. Strands of gemstones, sterling silver components and tools and equipment will be available in the vendor area along with ready-made jewelry items for those who love the look but don’t want to do-it-themself.

Free demonstrations on a number of techniques will be offered along with a round-table discussion with gem dealer/cutter Ken Dale of Rusty’s Gems.

Friday runs from 2 to 8 p.m., Saturday is from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Parking is free and admission at the door is $7, while children under 12 get in free.
