Annual Bead Exchange!!! 

Live, In Person, at Spruill Center for the Arts Room 7

Once a year Southern Flames has a Bead Swap - a meeting that makes everyone happy because we all go home with a new bead - or sometimes even a new piece of jewelry! 


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


Wrapped Beads from a Previous Bead Exchange:

Beads of Courage Info


Make your BOC beads on a 3/32" or larger mandrel and have no sharp edges.  Do not use reduction glass, frits, powders or enamels that leave a metallic surface on the beads.  Be sure they're fully annealed and cleaned. 

Children love fun beads in bright colors - but will appreciate any we donate!  Check out their link: and our SF page for more info. 

 Have fun and develop your skills!

  • TOOLS FOR TORCHTIME Southern Flames is asking members who may have duplicate or unused tools to donate them to our Torch-time area.  This is the place in Beads by Design with torches that SF Members can rent.  The donation of tools will make it easier for new beadmakers who have not yet purchased tools, or don't know what to purchase to work.



REMINDER: We love animals but for safety reasons we cannot have them at SF meetings or SF Sponsored Events.
