The Bead Society of Victoria

The Bead Society of Victoria, Inc. (BSV) was founded in 1994 by a small group of bead enthusiasts who decided to direct their passion for beads into founding an organisation to include beadwork into the arts and craft movement in Australia.

The common passion for creating beautiful jewellery and non-jewellery pieces using a large variety of different media makes the BSV a successful and inclusive organisation and the monthly meetings highly inspiring events.

Leslee Frumin is delivering a series of Workshops, via Zoom, for the Bead Society of Victoria, for both members and non members in November 2020

Leslee was scheduled to visit us in person, but due to Covid-19, we have arranged a series of Zoom Workshops to be conducted over two weekends in November 2020. 

Leslee's classes will be available for registration shortly, for both members and non members.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the Bead Society of Victoria have made the regretful decision to cancel the 2020 Melbourne Bead Expo at 

Whilst we are saddened that we won't be hosting the largest bead event in Australia in person this year, we do have some other exciting plans!


In the meantime, a range of Zoom Workshops will be conducted with both international and local tutors, and our famous 'Challenge' and competitions will still be conducted, with voting and judging as per other years.

The Bead Society of Victoria is very active in providing workshops by local tutors at the monthly meetings.

Besides bead weaving, other techniques are also taught, for example working with polymer clay, resin, fabric or metal.

Members come together each month to bead and chat and, most importantly, help each other to develop their skills and exchange creative ideas.
