It's bright, brilliant and beautiful
The 2012 Melbourne Bead Expo is on Friday the 9th to Sunday the 11th of November at the Kingston Town Hall in Moorabbin. It promises to be a most brilliant affair.

Featuring beadwork by some of Australia's best beaders, the expo also brings together the nation's top beading suppliers, so you can browse and buy all you need to create your own designs at home.

There are breathtaking beads and gems, tools of the trade and exquisite finished artworks.

There's also plenty to learn and workshops to suit anyone from beginner to advanced. They're run by Australia's best, so you're sure to be both inspired and educated.

This year's international tutor is Melanie Potter, while evening classes with local tutors will run on Friday and Saturday night. There are also a number of other new initiatives to explore at this year's expo.

You might also like to try your hand at the annual Bead Challenge for a shot at some big prize money - or simply for the joy of creating something special with an interesting collection of red glass beads, chain and a filigree component.

Or perhaps pick up some affordable, unique jewellery or other lovely items for Christmas presents.
