The Houston International Quilt Festival is coming to the GR Brown Convention Center. Bowerbirds will be there in Booth 2135. See show listings for details.

There is a sale going on at my Etsy site until October 24. I hope our valued online shoppers take advantage of it.

Last weekend Bowerbirds appeared at a promising, up-and-coming but poorly attended show at Stafford Centre, the AKS Fall Show. This is a promotor new to Houston. Thank you to all who attended! Please make it a point to attend in March. I hope that the out of town vendors will give Houston another chance and come back to this show in spring 2020.

Speaking with the artists and suppliers in person and handling the beautiful beads and jewelry supplies is a wonderful way to shop. This pleasure will vanish completely if no one attends the shows and the out-of-town vendors cannot support themselves due to low attendance.

Bowerbirds offers both handcrafted jewelry and supplies that you can use to create your own beautiful art.

Bowerbirds offers a variety of carefully chosen supplies, including glass bead mixes, collectible glass beads, art wire and tools. We offer the same items that we use ourselves, and illustrated instructions describing how to use them.

Bowerbirds jewelry is designed and handcrafted by Kathryn Jolly, using vintage and collectible glass beads, her own fused glass, pearls, and both art wire and precious metal wire. Bowerbirds also offers selected jewelry by other artists.

Come to a show in your area to see our incredible selection of Czech pressed glass beads, some of which are also available in our Online Bead Shop; clear instructions and materials for beaded wirework jewelry; Mary Lowe Lukacs’ fantasy flower beads and vintage findings; custom bead mixes; colorful niobium earwires, silk neck strings and more.

Order supplies and jewelry from us here between shows. E-mail your requests to and let’s talk.
Thank you for visiting the Bowerbirds website. Keep up with our doings by liking our Facebook page, Bowerbirds Jewelry and Supplies, and drop us a line. Share your dreams and make them real.
