- Jewelry – Due to the overwhelming popularity of beading, we are no longer accepting applicants who are stringing seed beads and/or creating jewelry from mass produced beads that can generally be purchased is craft stores, such as Joann’s, Michael’s and Hobby Lobby. We currently have an abundance of vendors who are skilled with this art and whom have been involved with RAM for many years. We are now looking for unique artists who can offer something new, innovative or who use unique materials for our visitors to enjoy. For example, jewelry constructed from old tea tins, hand polished/cut stones, raw metals of all types, torch fired glass, antique Crack Jack toys, resins created from the artist’s own molds.
