Once a year Southern Flames has a Bead Swap - a meeting that makes everyone happy because we all go home with a new bead. 

Before the meeting members were given the following instructions:

"Get to the torch, and create a bead or bead creation everyone will want to steal.  Or perhaps you already have something ready to go..  Wrap it in unidentified packaging, and bring it to the August meeting for the annual Bead Exchange!" 

These are the beads exchanged at our 2014 Bead Exchange.  You'll find listed the person who made the bead, a brief description or comment provided by the artist, and the lucky winner.   This year you'll see a few beadmakers listed two or three times.  They provided beads for non-bead-making friends and family who wanted wanted to play, too.
