    2022 Snowflake Kit designed by Nicki Russo 


    Kit includes enough beads to produce one snowflake. 

    All the money raised will go to Beads of Courage.  This non-profit organization has the singular goal of advancing the science of caring for children, teens, and families coping with serious illness through arts-in-medicine programs.  Every time a bead is given, courage is honored, suffering is alleviated, resilience is strengthened, and the experience of human caring is affirmed.

    Kits will be SJBS available at meetings for $10. 

    If you cannot attend a meeting, order your kit for $11.50 by registering for it to be mailed. Selection of colorway depends on available inventory. To save shipping costs, only the materials will be mailed, the pattern will be emailed.  

    All sales final.

    About Cynthia

    “My path to being an artist has always been driven by my desire to create something that is beautiful to me. I bead for myself, to satisfy my desire to create, to feed my soul. That others admire my work is a gift. If they see something in my work that appeals to them, that calls to them, then I am blessed indeed, as maybe they can see a glimpse of the part of me that is just following my heart.

    This event is only for members of the South Jersey Bead Society. If you are not a member see Membership Information Benefits and How to Join

    We will be gathering for food and fun. 


    We will host our annual Beauty and Beast bead swaps, and our earring and pendant swap.

    Beauty and Beast bead swaps should be full tubes of good-quality seed beads. Wrap each tube separately. All the Beauties will go into one bag and all the Beasts will go into a bag. Everyone who brought tubes of beads will get to draw out new ones. REMEMBER: Please bring good quality beads.

    For the earring or pendant exchange , you will make a pair of earrings or a pendant and then wrap them or place in a small gift bag. Keep in mind that we have members of a variety of faiths so please stay away from any religious themed earrings. Anything that's winter related, such as snowflakes or snowmen, are fine. All the earrings and pendants will go into a bag and everyone who made earrings will get to draw out a new pair.
