Portland Whole Bead Show

We just returned from showing at the Portland Whole Bead Show. A very nice group of creative people offering yummy work for beaders. We were located next to Rick at Zeka Beads and the banter made the time fly by. Ava from Whole Bead and her whole crew were so friendly and helpful. Wynnwoods Gallery from Port Townsend were very helpful and we appreciate their expertise in the marketplace.

The customers were amazing; alot of talented experts and novices. Some were scanning for the special bead or unusual pendant; others were very expert and knew exactly what they wanted.

Folks are learning about Off Center Productions through our snazzy web site and blog and word is spreading by ads such as the August edition of Bead and Button.

Our one of kind artisan porcelain is intended to be used as a focal; collected; stashed; and generally enjoyed. We have delicious glaze colors; smooth and very earthy surfaces; and a wide range of shapes-some unique to us.

We feature, brag about and celebrate the designers who use our work and we try to encourage them to email photos so we can post finished work on this blog.

Our latest wonder is the Ode to Marie Antoinette entered in the Art Bead Scene. June contest. The necklace is by Norma Dalton Of Lynnwood, WA.

See us next at at Puget Sound Bead Festival in Tacoma July 13-15
