The Delaware Valley Bead Society (DVBS) will sponsor a Trunk Show with Beth Botak, founder of Kabela Design, and Tom Botak, on Tuesday, September 18, 2018, 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, including pendants, charms, drops, links, connectors, bead caps and more. The Kabela line is made in the United States from the original stampings that started in 1904. Kabela offers a ‘vintage feel with a contemporary twist’. In addition, Kabela Design will be presenting a bead challenge! They will pass out Kabela pieces which will include a focal point, chain and findings. Attendees should bring their own tools and any beads, fibers, seed beads, etc., which they would like to use to create a piece. They will be given 30-45 minutes to create Their project, which will then be judged for best basic beaded piece and for most unique piece. The winners will receive free Kabela items. They will also be selling their line at the meeting with a 20% one-time discount to attendees.
Kabela is named after the Botak’s first two grandchildren, Katie and Isabella, and 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.
