CHA Pix & Follow-up

The Craft & Hobby Association (CHA) Summer Show was held in Orlando, Florida, a few weeks ago. With a traditional tradeshow and a new SuperShow consumer portion, this new venue was a great opportunity to meet with customers and introduce our new products and catalog supplement.

Along with our new colors of Beadalon wire, such as SilverGold and Champagne, our biggest hits at the show were our new wire-wrapping products. Wire wrapping is hot! New round, half-round and square Stainless Steel wires drew a lot of interest from customers. This specially tempered wire work-hardens quicker than other types of wire and is a good alternative when extra durability is needed.

Our workshop by Beadalon Design Team Member, Margot Potter, was a great success. Margot taught students how to make a design from Bead & Wire Jewelry Exposed (F+W Pubs 2009) that showed how fun and easy it is to make stylish jewelry. The next CHA show will be held in Anaheim in January 2010.
