Hello Bead Collectors, I would like to invite you to our show in Green Valley (30 miles south of Tucson). It's a scenic drive and takes only 30 minutes. On account of the influx of Chinese "Venetian" beads and the high cost to exhibit in the Tucson shows, my husband and I decided to become self-promoters and create our own show in the lovely retirement community of Green Valley. We enjoy exhibiting in this personal atmosphere but it's been difficult to get buyers and collectors to make the trip to Green Valley. In addition to a huge selection of contemporary Venetian glass beads, we have glass rod from the Costantini Company, bead sample cards from the 40s, vintage clasps and lampwork beads, seed beaded flowers from 1914-18 (used for creating funeral wreaths during WWI), Ercole Moretti necklaces, Franchini murrine, a collection of millefiori slices from the 1970s, chevrons, Murano glass chandelier pieces, vintage seed beads, and lots of finished pieces. Our show opens one day prior to the Gem Mall/Holidome so please come! My book will be available too! Thank you, Nicole and Francesco
