Bead Society Meeting Follow-up

Wow, what a great turn out for the star class taught by Marge Primavera and her helpers. 96 kits were sold so I think there are going to be a lot of Bead Society Stars on the Cape this Holiday season. For those of you who are now addicted to making the stars, you can purchase more of the 30 mm twisted bugles at Remember to buy 28 gauge beading wire to fit through the twisted bugles.

Great news--besides being such a successful meeting we had 7 more people sign up to be members. We certainly are growing, meeting and making new friends and having lots of fun. Keep bringing your friends and don't forget the member who brings in the most new members for the year will receive a complimentary membership for the next year.

Hint--You should always keep track of what it cost to make each piece of jewelry and how long it took to make it. The reason for this is when you start selling your jewelry you will know what value to put on it. We plan to have a Bead Society Sale next November so you need to have this information to price your jewelry for that sale.

Standing Rule of the Bead Society--No instructions for the bead society projects will be given out prior to the meeting and no instructions will be sent over the internet.

January's project--Reminder, we do not have a meeting in December, but we will be meeting January for our RAW (right angle weave) Sparkle Bracelet.

One single strand clasp
Approximately 64 6mm crystal bicones
Approximately 104 3mm crystal bicones.
6lb fireline.

You do not have to use crystals but do pick out 6mm beads and 3mm beads. Picture is attached.

Have a great Thanksgiving and keep beading.
