Use this PDF postcard to tell your fellow beaders and current customers about the Art of Adorning.


The Art of Adorning is an annual gathering of talent that highlights hand-made art jewelry as well as importers and distributors of historic and contemporary beads, fabrics, fashion items, clothing, buttons, and artifacts. The event is free to the general public and is held on-site at the Bowers Museum of Cultural Art from 10AM until 4PM. Take a chance with a raffle ticket and win a wonderful prize donated by one of our talented vendors. We also raffle off a grand prize bead jar with literally hundreds of beads, findings and goodies for creating many beautiful items!

Plenty of parking is available in both the north and south parking lots of the Bowers Museum.

Enjoy a leisurely lunch at Tangata restaurant (located on site) to round out your day of shopping.

Please note that the Art of Adorning does not include admission to the Bowers and its exhibits. View the ticketing table located inside the Bowers for museum admission costs.

For juried vendors who have questions, contact Diane Day. All vendors are members of the Bead Society of Orange County and the Bowers Museum.
