Jean Campbell, author of Steampunk Style Jewelry, will be speaking to The Bead Society of San Diego and they have graciously offered to have local steampunks join the fun. Jean's book is one of our favorites in the current wave of steampunk art & jewelry books out there. Not only does it have fantastic jewelry designs, throughout the book are sidebars discussing steampunk music, community, fashion and art. We're excited to hear her speak on "Designing Jewelry in the Steampunk Style".  We would love to see many local steampunks showing off their best gear for the Bead Society members to admire. Don't forget your steampunk jewelry as well!

Join us Saturday, August 20th at the Mingei International Museum in Balboa Park, dressed in your steampunk best. Suggested arrival time is 9:45 to ensure a good seat for the presentation. The Bead Society has generously offered to pay the Mingei admission for the first 20 steampunks and a discounted rate of $5 thereafter. Light refreshments will be served. Parking may be found in front of the San Diego Museum of Art, Alcazar Gardens lot behind the Mingei and the Organ Pavilion parking lot. Your admission to the museum is good for the day, so feel welcome to explore their exhibits afterwards. See you there!
