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.

Message from the President

Spring has sprung and the Bead Society is in full swing. I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and is ready to Bead, Bead, Bead.

 

You may know that our president, Laurie Bye, has stepped down from her presidency. Laurie was the founder of our organization and the driving force behind how successful we are today. She will be greatly missed as our president, but she will continue to be a working member of our team. Thank you Laurie for your dedication and endless devotion.

 

As vice president, I will become the interim president.  I hope I can follow in Laurie’s footsteps and continue the great work she has done.

 

The board is working tirelessly to bring new and exciting events in the coming months. I look forward to seeing you all at our next meeting, Thursday, April 5th

 

Bead On,

About Liisa

Liisa threaded her first beading needle back in 1994. Beading as a hobby she went on to become a massage therapist, esthetician, and got her nursing degree in Finland.

But in 2006 beads wove her back in. Since then she has spent her time fully submerged in beads! She has been working professionally as a designer and teacher since 2006.

Liisa has taught at the Bead & Button shows and Bead Fest shows. Along with beads her other major obsession is with cats.

Often volunteering in her local shelter and fostering kittens! Cats have been her biggest inspiration in her designing process.

And just like cats, her designs are known for being classic, ageless, and graceful….With a few hairballs thrown into the mix.

Liisa was named one of Beadwork magazine’s Designer of the Year in 2014.
