Come see us at BeadFest Texas!

One month to go, and we can’t wait.  For the third year, Wired Up Beads will be at BeadFest Texas October 26, 27 & 28!

We will be emailing free passes in October — a $12 savings! — so be sure to sign up for our newsletter.


Everything is bigger in Texas, and our booth is no exception.  We will be taking up four booths to have room for all the incredible tools and supplies we are going to bring.

We are bringing all of our popular Wubbers Pliers for you to hold and feel the difference.  Patti Bullard, inventor of Wubbers and owner of Wired Up Beads, will be there demonstrating all you can do with Wubbers Designer Pliers, including the Squares, Jumbo Round Mandrels, and Looping Pliers.

Part of our booth is reserved for Ginnovations, our resident lampwork teacher’s creations.  Ginny Hampton-Schmidt does incredible work — stop by and get some beautiful glass beads for your designs.

We will have some giveaways and prizes each day, so be sure to stop by to join in the fun!

BeadFest is held at the Arlington Convention Center, next to the Texas Rangers Ballpark, at 1200 Ballpark Way, Arlington Texas, 76011.  Parking is $5 per day.

  • Saturday, October 27: 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

    Any chance you might go to Bead Fest Santa Fe in March? I’d love to see your booth and “try on” some of your new pliers (like I need more?!?) – I’ll be in Santa Fe but won’t be going to Arlington.

    Hi PollyAnna, our warehouse is only 20 minutes from Arlington, so that is the reason why we do the BeadFest Texas show. Right now we don’t travel, but you never know, we might in the future!

    Did you know we guarantee you will love our pliers? If you order them and decide you don’t like them, you can send them back for a refund, less shipping. Wubbers really are different – we hope you give them a try!

    Oh well…I knew you were close to Arlington but hoped you might travel some day. I live in San Antonio but lived in NM for many years so the Santa Fe Bead Fest is an excuse for me to travel back there and visit old friends at the same time. I can’t justify doing two bead fests so have to skip Arlington. Maybe one of these days you might visit San Antonio and maybe teach a class at Sam Hibler’s place (I know she’s gone up to teach at yours). And I have several of your pliers already and do love them. The “try on” would only be so I could prioritize which additional ones I want to spend my pennies on!

    How nice that you get to travel to a bead show AND get to see friends! San Antonio is so beautiful — that is a favorite vacation spot of ours. The Tower of the Americas was a fun diversion last time I was there. What a great idea to teach at Sam’s place. Have you taken her classes? Not only is she a talented teacher, that lady is hilarious!

    Our line of Wubbers pliers keeps expanding — Triangle Wubbers are the next in production — so we completely understand wanting to prioritize. We have the same issue, being around a warehouse full of jewelry supplies. It’s so tempting! :) Please let us know if you have any questions — if you describe the kind of work you do, we can suggest the best pliers for the job. I am sure it’s no big surprise to you that we LOVE talking jewelry. Take care!
