I've been going to this for years. It has jewelry and gems to suit every taste, from stunning estate pieces to costume jewelry made in China, loose gemstones, jewelry repair stations, and all the kinds of beads you can imagine.

Great show for anyone interested in jewelry and beading. For the beginner, be prepared to be overwhelmed by all you see and hear. Lots of great buys for reasonable prices. If you are not willing or able to bargain, and can't afford to buy...continued

Had a great time, as always. Took a couple of friends and they were on sensory overload! It's always a fun outing, even if you don't buy anything. Good place to get things like costume jewelry, purses, scarves, etc, for birthday & holiday...continued

Excellent show, bring enough cash---not all vendors take credit cards. Wear comfortable shoes--lots of walking & lots to see. Carpool if you can. Parking lot is very convenient---right at the door to the Civic Center, but it does cost $8.00.

Great bead and jewelry show. Too bad the Santa Monica Civic is closing, and
this show is moving to Pasadena. Hope the new venue is as well set up as this
one has been for many years in Santa Monica.
