***   BEAD EXCHANGE!!   ***

Once a year Southern Flames has a Bead Exchange - a meeting that makes everyone happy because we all receive a new bead - or sometimes even a new piece of jewelry or other wonderful item! 

Before the meeting members were given the following instructions:

"Get to your torch, and create a bead or bead creation everyone would want.  Or perhaps you already have the perfect bead all ready to go..  Wrap it up and mail it to our president, Stephanie White, and she will send it on to another member to be unwrapped during the Zoom meeting for the annual Bead Exchange!" 

Below you'll see the beads and other items unwrapped at our 2020 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 twice.  They provided beads for non-bead-making friends and family who wanted wanted to play, too.
