The Great Beads-On-Wheels Company

My daughter and I go to your house or venue and bring simply EVERYTHING so that participants can create their own beaded masterpiece. All we need is a little space to spread out our treasures.At our parties we provide:

- Millions of beads in boxes all arranged in chromatic order, of all colors, kinds and shapes
(lampwork glass, cut crystal glass, clay, resin/acrylic, wood, shells, pearl glass, half-precious stones, terra-cotta, and more)

- Hundreds of different metallic findings in 4 tones (silver, golden, copper and brass)
(bead caps, spacer beads)
(NO lead, NO nickel in all findings)

- A huge selection of various pendants that can be used as centre pieces and MANY masculine options for boys (skulls, eagles, geckos, pirates, dragons, etc..)

- About 20 different choices of toggle clasps (already tied to pre-cut Tiger Tail strings) in 4 tones

- Beading trays

- Many examples of necklaces to provide a little inspiration

How Our Parties Work

For a party of up to 20 participants:

Once all is set up, we briefly explain a few technical details and a few suggestions to help our budding designers.

Then, guests are invited to take a tray and browse at all that is on display (the best trick is to take a few beads that we really like, maybe a pendant too, and slowly build up- it is easier to sample beads slowly as we go than to have to bring many unused ones back at the end!). Then it is a question of playing, trying and moving them around until one is happy with the result.

After, the guests are asked to choose a clasp that will fit best with their creation. Then comes the time to string the beads.

Once this is done, my daughter or myself come with our pliers and attach the second and final piece of the clasp, the t-bar. And voilà! Done! We provide gift bags as well as small paper tags with “Made with Love”  “by:”--- “for:” so the masterpiece can easily be offered as a gift.

In the context of a birthday party, we appreciate to have a few parents present to help us if the children are very young. Also, nice soft, quiet music in the background helps to keep everyone relaxed and zen!


For larger parties:

If the event you plan is bigger and potentially attended by many guests, we can also offer this activity as an open concept, where participants come and go as they please. In this case, we also provide a printed text at the door to help people get started, as we cannot always be everywhere at once. This system has been tried and found successful at The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.

Recommended as an interesting activity during conferences, as adults are also extremely keen on doing it.
