The Bead&Button Show is hosting another exciting Flame On! Our celebrity flameworkers will create their amazing signature beads and sculptures. This special session will give you the opportunity to watch these famous lampworkers close at hand and possibly pick up some new tricks and techniques. It's always an amazing evening as our faculty and exhibitiors show off their creativity on the flame in a limited amount of time.

The Flame On will be held in Hall D where the Show floor classrooms are located. There is limited seating and standing room. Admission is limited to the first 300 registrants. Due to the classroom setups, attendees should be aware that everyone's line of sight will not be 100 percent when observing the lampworkers. We anticipate the majority of attendees will be standing.

You will have the opportunity to purchase Flame On pieces. All beads and artwork created will be auctioned off at our Bead Social and Auction Night on Saturday evening to benefit Bead Artists Against Breast Cancer fundraising efforts.

We wish to thank our friends at Arrow Springs, Donna and Craig Milliron, Lori Riley and the staff they send to our Show, for the ongoing support they have provided for our glass and lampworking sessions. Our Flame On would not be possible without their commitment to the Show.

This is an event you will not want to miss! Order your ticket now.
