Bead & Button Market Place Scholarship

Bead & Button Show – ISGB Marketplace Sales Opportunity

The Bead & Button Show – ISGB Marketplace Artisan Sales Table Scholarship will again be awarded in 2020. This exciting opportunity gives an ISGB member artist the chance to sell on the Bead & Button Show floor for the first time, without the responsibility of the table fee. The Bead & Button Marketplace is a vibrant selling space for hand-crafted beads, stones, jewelry supplies, findings, and finished artwork. The Bead & Button Show and ISGB offer this opportunity to ISGB members in support of artistic excellence, to help further education and experience, and to provide the artist a direct selling opportunity to thousands of jewelry makers.

Applications for the Bead & Button 2020 Scholarship are now open.

Calls for Submissions

Presentations

Each year the ISGB sends out calls to teach and present at our annual conference, "The Gathering".  While the ISGB focuses on its members, this is an opportunity for both members and non-members to share their skills and promote the art.  The ISGB also sends out a call to members for Commemorative Bead submissions.

  • Commemorative Bead Submission members only  Each year the ISGB supports an artist by purchasing and selling a bead that represents the artist's style as a commemorative bead to our Gathering attendees.
  • Call for Presenters no membership required  The Gathering hosts a series of educational presentations that are not limited to glass.  These may be complementary mediums, as well as topics of professional developmental and business education among artists and craftspeople.
  • Call for Instructors no membership required  The Gathering offers a variety of workshops that are based on current trends and industry interest. These workshops are not limited to torch-based work.
  • President's Collection no membership required  At the end of each ISGB president's term, they look at the entire glass community and choose pieces that represent the current market trends and advancements in glass.  These magnificent pieces are submitted to the Corning Museum of Glass, thereby promoting both the artists and the medium.
  • Postcard Project no membership required   Each year we call for postcards from artists around the world to create a collection that is sought after as a keepsake and relevant to the artists' advancements of the year.  This is a great opportunity to see your own growth as well as the industry's.
  • Exhibitions members only  The ISGB has hosted many exhibitions over the years, elevating the art of glass.  Visit past exhibitions to see the amazing work of our members.  (Coming soon)
