The Bead Society of Victoria

The Bead Society of Victoria, Inc. (BSV) was founded in 1994 by a small group of bead enthusiasts who decided to direct their passion for beads into founding an organisation to include beadwork into the arts and craft movement in Australia.

The common passion for creating beautiful jewellery and non-jewellery pieces using a large variety of different media makes the BSV a successful and inclusive organisation and the monthly meetings highly inspiring events.

Join today!



Nancy Cain is visiting Melbourne for a special event in 2020, just for Bead Society of Victoria members.

A second ENCORE session is now available

Tuesday 3rd, Wednesday 4th & Thursday 5th March 2020.

East Caulfield Reserve.

Nancy visited us in 2016, and we are so excited she is coming back again to take us through her Masterclass in Engineering Vessels. Nancy says "A masterclass doesn't mean you have to be a master. Don't be fearful of signing up - I'll hold your hand through the whole process! Come without expectations but with an open mind, and you’ll have an awesome time."

The Bead Society of Victoria is very active in providing workshops by local tutors at the monthly meetings.

Besides bead weaving, other techniques are also taught, for example working with polymer clay, resin, fabric or metal.

Members come together each month to bead and chat and, most importantly, help each other to develop their skills and exchange creative ideas.
