Artist Gay Isber helps guests construct holiday decorations from her collection of millions of beads. Patrons nibble and sip on food and drinks, which can be prepped in the artist's kitchen, or fire up a CD or iPod to serve as background music. Then Gay helps finish bracelets, and shares facts and stories about each chosen vintage, new, pearl, and wooden bead.
The Sugar Factory by Gay Isber Designs
Jewelry designer Gay Isber has transformed an old building into a glittering enclave decorated in a whimsical style that brings to mind Willy Wonka's factory as reimagined by a quirky fairy godmother. Classes and parties amid the animal-print furnishings and scintillating chandeliers draw together guests to craft jewelry from her huge stash of beads. The jeweler, who has adorned the necks of several celebrities, demonstrates techniques and shares stories about each bead's origins and former life as ammo for a peashooter.
