A jewel of a show to sparkle in Cincinnati

January 22, 2014 by  

People of West Chester with a passion for beads should set this weekend aside for the Intergalactic Bead and Jewelry Show (IBJS).

More than 30 exhibitors will be displaying wholesale precious and luxurious gemstones, beads, metals, chains, pendants, charms, lamp-work, glass beads, pearls, and several types of crystals.

Visitors will find that many of the beads and jewelry items are handmade and some come from as far afield as the Czech Republic. Other options are the Bead Room’s antique seed beads from Japan and The Ad Adornment’s African trade beads. Jewelry accessories such as watch faces, kits, bead wire, and jewelry making tools will also be available.

IBJS has been serving the East coast for 15 years and has been a pioneer in the bead show industry. The show is committed to high quality merchandise, time-saving convenience, and top service to all its customers. Although the Internet has been expanding the marketing of beads online, IBJS feels that nothing compares to the feel of the real thing, and attendees enjoy the experience along with the live interaction with professional exhibitors.

Many unique bead proprietors at this event, as well as jewelry designers, bead crafters, and collectors in the crowd, may want to consider having digital business card printing done prior to the event.

The show takes place this Saturday and Sunday, beginning both days at 10:00 am and closing at 5:00 pm, at the Sharonville Convention Center, 11355 Chester Rd. Cincinnati, Ohio.
