Beads of Courage Day!!

*** *** ***

Come play on the torch!!  There will be two torches set up at Beads By Design (using Southern Flames’ new concentrator and Stephanie’s concentrator on loan for the event – thanks, Stephanie!)

There will be a prize for the person who makes the most beads during their session at Beads By Design AND a prize for the donation of the most Beads of Courage brought to the meeting.

So bring LOTS of beads for Beads of Courage, and plan to make LOTS more at the meeting!!!


Members at an Earlier Open Torch Night!

See you there!

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.
