About the Museum


The Museum of Beadwork is the collaborative vision of Heather Kahn and Kristina Skillin. Its purpose is to create an exhibition area for beaded artwork, form an artistic community, and provide a center of learning. The Museum of Beadwork showcases beaded artwork by housing and displaying the finest examples of beaded jewelry, clothing, sculpture, accessories, and tapestries as well as the work of contemporary artists.

Our ongoing exhibitions present information on beadwork styles from all over the globe, the historic development of beads throughout human history, highlights of modern bead making processes, as well as an extensive representations of beadwork. The museum will also have a classroom area with an exciting array of workshops, classes, and events.
