The Indiana Bead Society was founded in 1997 by a small group of people dedicated to bringing together individuals interested in all aspects of beads and beadwork.

Our current membership brings together many individuals interested in the history of beads and beading, collecting beads, making beads, and the use of beads in jewelry pieces, wearable art and displays.




The Society is open to anyone regardless of gender, nationality, color, religion or physical limitations.
