Welcome to the Bead Society of the Palm Beaches

The society was formed by a group of fabulous women (who just so happened to be beaders) in 2014 out of a need to build a sense of togetherness among those who have a passion for beading. We invite you to come and share your enthusiasm, talent and creativity.
We will both be glad you did.

About Nikia

Beading since birth (relatively speaking), creating is as natural to Nikia as breathing – and just as necessary.

She’s been beading from the age of 7 when her Cherokee grandmother taught her the loom. She has taught at major bead and jewelry shows across the country, as well as bead stores, bead guilds and retreats. Helping to spread the joy of nature, love, creation and beads is her inspiration.

Author of Crystal Stitching, Nikia is diligently working on the next crystal adventures. When she isn’t busy beading or traveling the country, Nikia resides in Albuquerque, NM with her always patient husband, dogs, cats and Cleo the Iguana.
