Included with all VIP Festival Pass packages
Now is your chance to get a one-of-a-kind Carry a Bead kit featuring exquisite glass beads each bead set includes amazing Murrini cut beads from a custom cane
created by Hall of Fame bead artist Stephanie White. These beads were created exclusively for the 2022 Beads, Beer and Blues Festival! Stephanie's captivating bead designs are sure to be a welcome addition to your bead collection.
Each Carry a Bead kit contains two beads. You keep one bead and return the other to us to be given to a child in the Beads of Courage program on a tough treatment day. We believe you are energetically connected to the child you are supporting through the bead you keep and the bead given to a Beads of Courage member.
Each time you Carry a Bead, you support the mission of Beads of Courage with your $20 donation AND encourage a child in our program with the bead you carry and return. The bead you return will be packaged with your note of encouragement and given to a child to add to their bead strand. You keep one bead and the Team Beads of Courage pewter charm from each kit.
Once you Carry a Bead, you are an official member of Team Beads of Courage! Be sure to follow our Team Beads of Courage Facebook Page to share your Carry a Bead adventures and connect with other team members!
ABOUT THE ARTIST: After years of watching bead making, Stephanie White first started working on the torch in 2001. She says, "I'm constantly working on learning new techniques and developing new skills." Recently she has been drawing inspiration from nature, especially flowers and garden bugs. She works at Beads By Design in Marietta, Georgia and is lucky enough to be able to melt glass almost every day.
