Bead ma­nia comes to town this week­end as Santa Fe hosts one of the largest con­sumer bead and jew­elry shows in the South­west. Bead Fest Santa Fe 2010 fea­tures more than 180 ex­hibitors and 90 classes, and the work­shops aren’t just lim­ited to bead­work. In­struc­tors take you through the nuts and bolts of the pro­fes­sional jew­elry biz with classes in chain maille, clay, de­sign­ing, kiln fus­ing, met­al­smithing, and wire weav­ing. The fes­ti­val takes place at the Santa Fe Com­mu­nity Con­ven­tion Cen­ter (201 W. Marcy St.) and La Fonda (100 E. San Fran­cisco St.) from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Fri­day and Satur­day, March 19 and 20, and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sun­day, March 21. Ad­mis­sion is $10 a day, $12 for a two-day pass, and $14 for a three-day pass — this gets you into the shop­ping ar­eas and some demos. At­tend­ing work­shops will cost you ex­tra (you can reg­is­ter for them on-site). For in­for­ma­tion, visit www.bead­fest.com.
