Welcome to Creative Connections

Creative Connections is a new, inspiring jewelry-making retreat brought to you by the team behind the Bead&Button Show. Six wonderful instructors will each teach an immersive three-day jewelry-making class.

While the technique-driven classes will take your skills to the next level, we are also planning to have a great time. You will be greeted with a Welcome Social on Friday and enjoy a special Instructor Showcase and Gathering on Sunday evening. It’s all taking place at the Crowne Plaza Resort in the unique and beautiful city of Asheville, North Carolina.
