Once a year Southern Flames has a Bead Exchange - a meeting that makes everyone happy because everyone who wants to participate receives a new bead - or sometimes even a new piece of jewelry or other wonderful item! 

Before the meeting members were asked to complete a form indicating whether they wanted to participate this year.  Those who signed up were randomly given the name and address of another participating member. 

Participating 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 your assigned recipient by August 10.  No need to indicate the that YOU created it until the beads are unwrapped at the Zoom meeting, when all will be revealed during our annual Bead Exchange!" 

Below you'll see the beads and other items unwrapped at our 2021 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.
