The Delaware Valley Bead Society (DVBS) will sponsor a Trunk Show with Beth Botak, founder of Kabela Design, on Tuesday, September 15, 2015, at 7pm in the Café of the Hunterdon County Senior Center, 4 Gauntt Place - Building #1, Flemington, NJ. The program is free and open to the public, but non-members must pre-register.
If you find yourself drawn to antique jewelry designs, then you should come to the Kabela Design trunk show to see their extensive line of art deco, art nouveau, and filigree pieces, which include pendants, charms, drops, links, connectors, bead caps and more. Because Kabela offers a ‘vintage feel with a contemporary twist’, you will also find steam punk! In addition to antique brass, their products also have antique silver, antique copper, or stardust frosted gold finishes.
In 2007 Beth was looking to have her own line of unique findings that had a great story, history and quality that she could stand behind. She founded a line of antique brass stampings from dies dating back as far as 1904. They cover designs from the art deco, art nouveau, and filigree periods. All of those products are made in the United States from nickel free raw brass, which is then stripped, cleaned and plated with an antique finish. Kabela's brass is lacquered for longevity!.
Kabela got its start in 2007 when Botak was looking to have her own line of unique findings that had a great story, history and quality that she could stand behind. She started with a line of antique brass stampings from dies dating back as far as 1904, and all the products are made in the United States from raw brass which is then stripped, cleaned and plated with the various finishes. Botak continues to design and develop new pieces and products to add to the line. To see all the beautiful pieces Kabela has to offer, visit their website at www.kabeladesign.com
Botak will bring a small challenge kit. We will have approximately 45 minutes to create with it. You will want to bring your tools, some beads and perhaps some fibers. She will then pick two creations: Most Unique and Best Use of Materials. Those winners will get to pick out some free stuff!
The trunk show will be presented during the two-hour DVBS meeting. To register, e-mail your name, address and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (908) 246-1231.
