Demo: Sallie Licata, our Treasurer, will show us how to make great Fall Themed Beads that also happen to be perfect to make after our meeting, for the children in the BOC program.
If you accepted the challenge to do this at the last meeting, Bring your 12 – 15 Big Hole Pandora/Troll Style beads, made on your 5/32” mandrels. Put each bead in a baggie with your name/business card in it. We’ll have fun trading the beads, then be able to go home and create a crazy quilt of beaded jewelry from beads made by your Flame Surfer glassy pals. You’ll end up with a very unique piece of jewelry that memories are made of.

Make child friendly beads. We are participating in the National Bead Challenge Event at PAG on the same day as our meeting, due to unforeseen scheduling changes. We will start the BOC event around 12pm and end at 5pm. We’ll have a 1/2 hour rotation at the 8 torches provided by Pacific Art Glass. Bring your Didys, favorite tools, & glass. We provide the dipped mandrels, and there is glass on hand if you don’t have it. I will have copies of the SLT Hot Beads for Cool Kids 1 & 2 Tutorial Books, for you to get more ideas for BOC beads.
If you bring BOC beads in for that day, Please, No: Sharp Edges, Broken Parts, Cracks, Bead Release, Delicate Parts, or Metals on the surface of the bead (like silver or reactive glass).
