    Hello Beaders!


    We are excited to bring you a truly unique project for August - a triple wrap bracelet designed by Amy Haftkowycz of Trixie's Jewel Box. This beautiful and fashionable bracelet is all the rage right now! Each kit is different, and the random mix of beads results in a one-of-a-kind piece. You will have the option of either a 6mm bead kit or a 4mm bead kit. The bronze metal-clay button and shank components are handcrafted as well. And just by switching out the beads, you can create a wide variety of looks from this simple concept! If you want to raid your own stash, you have the option to purchase just the pattern. 



    Option 1 - 6mm



    Option 2 - 4mm


    Each kit features a mix of Czech glass melon beads, druk beads, and fire polished beads, as well as bronze cube beads. The Czech glass beads come in a premixed bag. This is a "whatever happens, happens!" project - just pick up the bead that jumps on the needle for each stitch and run with it! Randomly working in the metal beads adds yet another layer of depth and texture. The closure is a unique handcrafted fold-over arrangement - different than the majority of simple button closures you see on wrap bracelets!

    The button and ring in this kit are handcrafted by the designer from bronze metal clay. Note that each button and ring is handmade and therefore expect variation from kit to kit.

    The skill level for this project is advanced beginner, assuming a working knowledge of weaving in/tying off thread.

    Option 1 - Kit with 6mm Beads (Enough for up to a 7.75" bracelet) - $38


    Assorted 6mm Beads (90)
    3mm x 3mm bronze cube beads (18)
    1.5mm metal beads with 1mm hole - 30
    1 Shank Button
    1 Metal Ring
    1mm waxed cotton cord – 55"

    8-page pattern


    Option 2 - Kit with 4mm Beads (Enough for up to a 7.75" bracelet) - $38


    Assorted 4mm Beads (125)

    2mm x 2mm bronze cube beads (18)

    1.5mm metal beads with 1mm hole - 30
    1 Shank Button
    1 Metal Ring
    1mm waxed cotton cord – 55"

    8-page pattern

    Hello Beaders!


    Boy, we have waited a long time for this: we are gathering in person again! We have a really fun meeting planned, with a free project, show 'n tell, raffle, auction, and snacks. We will also be following the CDC guidelines for a safe gathering. And we will be meeting at our new location. Finally it will be wonderful just to see everyone in person again!

    • MLBS has put together kits for a fun and easy earring project. Just bring a needle, thread of choice, 2 sets of pliers, and a bead mat.
    • Bring the projects you've been working on during the pandemic for a show 'n tell - some may need a truck. ;)  We can't wait to see your beautiful work!
    • We will have our world-famous 50-50 raffle ("one for one or six for five. Do you feel lucky?!")
    • There will be a silent auction of goodies.
    • We will have single-serve snacks and water. Feel free to bring something to share.
    We are following current CDC guidelines for gathering safely. If you are not immunized, we ask that you wear a mask. If you are immunized, you may choose whether or not to wear a mask. And there will be plenty of room in our new location for those who choose to maintain social distance.


    Speaking of... Ronnie has graciously arranged for us to meet at her church, Church of Christ of Folsom. This location is close to the Route 3 exit on the Blue Route and has ample parking, a large, first-floor meeting room, and WI-FI!


    Meeting details:

Main Line Bead Society Event Cancellation/Refund Policy

The general guidelines governing cancellation and refunds for Main Line Bead Society Events (including all member meeting programs, any MLBS workshops, events or retreats for members only or open to the public) are outlined below.  All events are dependent on minimum enrollment and members/participants acknowledge that they have read and agree to abide by this policy as a condition of registration. Events are offered to members of the Main Line Bead Society and from time to time to other organizations and the general public as specified in individual event invitations.

Registration  - Members/participants will not be considered registered for an event until a registration form is completed and payment in full is made. All payments will be deposited when received and all registered/paid participants will receive a confirmation email.

Cancellation/Refunds -  For MLBS members, a full credit will be held in their account to be used against future events and for non-MLBS members, payments will be refunded in full if the event is cancelled/postponed by MLBS. If an event is rescheduled, non-MLBS participants who cannot attend on the rescheduled date will be given a full refund and MLBS members will have the full amount credited to their account to use toward future events. Refunds will be given as long as non-MLBS participants inform the Program Director of their wish to cancel up to two weeks prior to the event date. The registration fee will be refunded minus a processing fee of $5 for events up to/including $75 in event registration fees; $10 for events over $75 and up to/including $150 in event registration fees and for event registration fees over $150, the processing fee is $15.  For MLBS members, the refund amount will be held in their account to use as a credit toward a future event. (MLBS reserves the right to amend the processing fee for events with significantly higher registration costs. The amended processing fee will be clearly spelled out in the event registration information.)  

There is no penalty for cancellation one week before a scheduled event if the event is filled and the space can be filled by someone on a waiting list.

Except in the above cases, there will be no refunds for event registrations from the Bead Society. A person who needs to cancel may send someone in their place to participate in the event, or they may sell their place in the event to someone else. If they can’t arrange this, the person will receive any event materials they would have been entitled to as an event participant by notifying a Board member and making arrangements to pickup the kit/materials at a regular meeting no later than 60 days following the event. After that time frame, the kit will become the property of MLBS.  MLBS will not be responsible for mailing kits or materials.

Amended: 6/18/2019



The Main Line Bead Society is a 501(c)(7) federally tax exempt organization that meets monthly in Folsom PA.  You can follow MLBS on Facebook at Main Line Bead Society.
