In recent years, Island Cove Beads & Gallery has presented special trunk shows inspired by ancient civilizations that created some of the world's most memorable and unique beads and artifacts. We have hosted themed parties to celebrate Colleen's award-winning Deco-Egyptian Bracelet and the glass lampwork of Venice, Italy. This October, join us as we explore another of the world's most prolific bead-making societies - Japan - and celebrate its contribution to the art of beading and jewelry design.
These limited Japanese glass beads will be available at Island Cove on the evening of October 28th at 6:30pm. In addition, Andrew will be folding Origami for donations to a Children's Mission, and we will serve appetizers and drinks. Feel free to wear a kimono or other Japanese-themed garb and accessories if you have them!
- What to expect? Trays of individual glass beads and cabochons, strands of beads including many with the original "Made in Japan" labels still intact, ranging in colors and sizes. RSVP here.
- Plus, Island Cove stocks Tulip brand needles from Japan, Miyuki seed beads, and Japanese-themed koi fish charms.
- Also plan to shop the boutique for limited edition Japanese-themed gifts created by Island Cove's local artists. These special pieces include cherry blossom gem trees by Jerri Heer, bead embroidered Japanese china pendants by Debbye Mika as well as Jerri Heir, painted and embellished boxes by Catherine Valle, Japanese Water Garden lampwork glass beads by Lea Zinke, and handmade cherry blossom scented "Sakura Spring" soaps by Beryl Coder.

Typically it's the changing of the leaves that signifies fall flora. But its chrysanthemums, or “mums,” that have caught our attention this month. They commonly bloom during the fall, earning the designation as birthday flower for those born in November. Available in a wide array of colors - from white, to yellow and gold, pink, orange, bronze, deep red, and purple, Island Cove artists and clients alike are going crazy for chrysanthemums.
