Monthly Meeting – October
October 1, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Esther Beadwork is a small local company that started, literally, out of a closet and has now expanded to trade shows with Intergalactic Bead Shows and Frank Cox covering Florida and small trunk shows in Oregon. Kim Leahy started Esther Beadwork about 10 years ago when a gallery offered to exhibit her jewelry. A name was needed (you can’t be in a gallery without a great name) and has been doing the trade shows for about 5 years.
Edie McGee Peterkin joined Esther six months ago as a partner and has taken over the trade show division in Florida. Kim, now living in Oregon, is working on more designs for kits, marketing the company, teaching and working trunk shows.
Esther Beadwork currently carries mainly TOHO seed beads of all shapes and sizes and is a Member of Team Toho. They also carry a wide variety of Czech glass such as super duos, mini duos, silkies, Czechmates, triangles, charlottes, etc. as well as much of the supplies needed in beading.
