Bead People

They come in all shapes and sizes and with different interests. Here are pages and links for Beadmakers, Beadworkers and Bead Societies and Guilds

Beadmakers Where would this site be without them? They are crucial to the whole process. After securing raw materials, they are responsible for giving "birth" to beads.
The Center has always appreciated beadmakers. We pioneered their documentation and have data on over 150 of the world's beadmaking units.

Bead Societies and Research Groups

 Networking and building organizations is very important. When I started there were only three Bead Societies. Now there are over 100 societies and guilds. I am proud to have helped launch some of them. In addition to the CBR, I am co-founder of the Society of Bead Researchers and charter or co-founder of four US Bead Societies and one in Asia.
