Founded over 25 years ago the Baltimore Bead Society is a regional Arts Guild in Maryland comprised of bead enthusiasts, Creative artists and jewelry designers. Through our Programs, Classes and Workshops we share our common interests in beading, jewelry techniques, and in understanding beads within history and cultures throughout the world. Our meetings and other events provide an opportunity for learning new techniques in a supportive yet social environment.
We meet on the second Tuesday of each month from September through June at the Howard County Center for the Arts in Ellicott City MD, 8510 Highridge Rd from 6:30 to 9 pm. Visitors are welcome to join us.
Our annual Winter Bead and Jewelry Show in January is our biggest event of the year. We host many vendors and suppliers, offer workshops and display examples of our members work.
We are a non-profit organization with diversified interests including but not limited to Education, Philanthropy and Outreach.
