The Bead Society of Victoria Inc. (BSV) was founded in 1994, by beading enthusiasts with a desire to found an organisation, that would incorporate beadwork into the arts and craft movement in Australia.  A common passion for creating inspirational jewellery and non-jewellery pieces using a variety of media, has seen the BSV grow into a congenial and inclusive organisation supported by volunteers. 

The annual Bead Expo, monthly member meetings, virtual gatherings, special events, competitions and workshops with local and international tutors, all form part of our embracing organisation that encourages participation by everyone at all skill levels.

Membership

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.
