If you love beads and gems, silver wire and silk cord, this is the event for you. And we’ve got details on how to get in on the cheap!

GemFaire comes to EXPO New Mexico this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with over 20 exhibitors, plus classes and demonstrations galore. Normally, a weekend pass runs $5 per adult (pretty cheap to start with), but we found a buy-one-get-one-free coupon for admission. Plus, kids under 12 get in free!

You can browse booths with all manner of gems and beads for sale, not to mention all the necessary accoutrements to fashion jewelry and other items, and you can enjoy a variety of workshops (many with additional fee, so check the details before registering!), including:

  • Wire wrapping
  • Chain making
  • Sculptural beads
  • Free basic bead stringing
  • Japanese braiding
  • Gem, filigree, and soldered chain

and many others. Each instructor has different pre-registration requirements, so read the “workshops” section carefully.

Hours for this event are:

  • Friday, June 12 (2009), from Noon – 7:00pm
  • Saturday, June 13, from 10:00am – 6:00pm
  • Sunday, June 14, from 10:00am – 5:00pm

GemFaire is held at EXPO New Mexico at 300 San Pedro NE, Albuquerque. Be prepared to spend about $4 per car for parking.
