Take a look and Sign up Here!

The San Diego Bead Society is a dynamic community for all those who are passionate about beading and bead-related arts.  We have monthly meetings that can take place as Zoom calls or in-person sessions that include but are not limited to jewelry making classes, open beading, potlucks, artist presentations/lectures, and more!


Let’s go see the Crystal Ninja on July 6th — Presentation and Project

See you there!

August is the incredibly creative Alexandra Sydorenko

The Amazing Jayashree Paramesh has been moved to September!

We typically meet on the third Saturday of the month at the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center (4126 Executive Dr, La Jolla, CA 92037). Please check our calendar to the right to find out more about our meetings and what to expect.

In the meantime, stay healthy, stay informed, and check back frequently to see what we’re up to.  If you are not receiving our semi-weekly newsletter, or if you have any questions, please drop us an email at [email protected].

Please see our Meeting Calendar page for more information about our upcoming meetings, and feel free to explore our website for details about our many activities.

You can also find us on Facebook, where, if you like our page, you’ll be the first to know about upcoming classes and events!
