Spotlight On - Bead Society Of Orange County

9:00 AM

The Bead Society of Orange County (BSOC) was established in February of 1994 as an Affiliate Group of the Bowers Museum of Cultural Art. From a small group of ten women who shared a common interest in beads, the Bead Society has now grown into a group of more than 200 members.

The mission statement of the BSOC is to provide the community an educational resource in the artistic, historical and inter-cultural significance of beads. Our support of the Bowers Museum includes fundraising and volunteer support of museum programs.

Our membership fills an entire spectrum of related bead interests -- and our roster includes many avid collectors, historians, retailers, crafters, jewelers, importers and world travelers, all in the name of beads.

We meet every 4th Saturday of the month at 10:30am, except for July and November. December’s Member Holiday event is usually held on the 2nd Saturday.

Our annual Bead Bazaar (The Art of Adorning) is held each April on the 4th Saturday of the month.
