Bead Society Of Northern California

9:00 AM

The Bead Society of Northern California is an independent, educational organization for people interested in the collection, history, design, production, and exhibition of beads. We meet the third Tuesday of each month starting at 7:00 PM, Excluding December. The first half hour is for meet and greet, and refreshments.
The society has great speakers at each meeting, and produces a quarterly newsletter. The BSNC Bead Bazaar is the LARGEST one day show in the US. With over 120 studio artists and bead exhibitors, selling ancient/vintage/modern beads, finished jewelry, findings, books, and more. It is held in the Spring each year at the Marriott City Center in Oakland.
