New Bead Society Forms in Palm Beach County and Welcomes New Members

The Bead Society of the Palm Beaches was recently inaugurated and they are welcoming anyone who is interested to join! Their mission is to bring together a diverse group of people from far and wide to exchange ideas, share techniques and encourage talents in stringing, bead weaving, wire, polymer clay and looming.  Their aim is to inspire and nurture creative expression in a non-competitive atmosphere and to provide community with an educational resource in the art, history and cultural significance of beads and beading. This not-for-profit group has chosen Safe House for Teen Victims of Human Trafficking as one of its 2015 charitable organizations. The Rickie Report celebrates artistic networking and shares their information and some photos here.

President, Laurie Bye, tells The Rickie Report, “Founded in 2014, we are a new Society of diverse and enthusiastic beaders, wire workers, bead embroiders, loomers, knitters, crocheters and polymer clay artists. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced beader, we welcome you to join us as a member. We will meet the first Thursday of every month from 6:30 at Atlantis Country Club in Lake Worth.  We will be having guest speakers, trunk shows, and teachers from around the country that will be of interest to all kinds of beaders”.
