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.

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.
