Welcome to the Bead Society Blog!

The Bead Society is the oldest of its kind in the United States. The Bead Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports the study, discussion, and shared knowledge of beads in the United States and throughout the world.

The Mission of the Bead Society is to disseminate the knowledge of beads and all related subjects. Our goal is to bring that knowledge to as many people worldwide as possible.

The Society meets monthly at the Veterans Memorial Building in Culver City, CA. We have two fundraising Bazaars each year. We also offer research grants having to do with bead history, bead trade, bead manufacturing, and related subjects.

We hope to use this blog to keep you all updated on Bead events, stories and news items of interest to the Bead Community!  The first order of business is to rename this blog! Submit your suggestions to the current President, Kay Deeney.
