This charm bracelet blog brings an update regarding the ACA Kreations Bead of the Rising Sun for Great Lakes Boutique.
Friday saw the unveiling of the upcoming ACA Kreations Bead of the Rising Sun, created exclusively for the Great Lakes Boutique Bead Bash on the Lake event. It’s a sensational bead and though I’m fully aware I have a bias opinion, I’ve collected Alex’s work since the very beginning and I think it’s one of his best pieces to date.

Due to the way Alex works, there will always be limitations on his production. This jewellery isn’t mass produced so turning out thousands of beads isn’t viable. Based on the remarkable feedback of the design however, a couple of discussions took place over the weekend.
ACA Kreations Bead of the Rising Sun for Great Lakes Boutique
The total number of these beads has now been increased to three hundred pieces. That is the absolute maximum run size for Alex. As such a certain amount of stock will be made available online during the event weekend. (Remember the event falls on May the 4th, May the 5th and May the 6th.) They will be available exclusively via the Great Lakes Boutique website and again, there will be no pre-orders or any kind of reserves. It will be first come first served.
We haven’t finalised the online schedule for the event yet. That’s mostly due to uncertainties still in regards to exactly what special stock we’ll have available. The logistics of an event this size is crazy. Once we have a schedule, the time these beads will go live will be detailed there. We will be limiting online sales to one bead per person.
If you want to be guaranteed the bead, the best option is still to attend in person as demand for the online stock is going to be enormous. I’d also like to make a personal plea that people stop flooding Alex with messages regarding this bead. He has his own release to prepare for and he can’t smuggle you out beads not matter how much you beg 😉
