Who We Are

The Oklahoma Bead Society is an organization of bead artists who have joined together to enhance their skills and further their knowledge of the cultural,
historical, functional and technical aspects of beads. We also serve to promote
the education and appreciation of the fine art of creating beaded jewelry,
clothing and other beaded items.

The Oklahoma Bead Society was founded in the mid-1970's and has been a part
of the Tulsa culture in many ways. Each year we participate in several community service events. We display our work to let the general public know who we are and what fun we have learning the art of beading.

Come join us for a meeting. You will meet beaders of all levels from master beaders willing to share their knowledge to beginning beaders immersed in learning stitches and techniques. All levels of beaders are welcome.
