Our expert instructors love to make jewelry, teach jewelry, and wear jewelry. They’re big supporters of Beads of Courage and bring lots of good energy to our fundraising events. They’ve taught at our in-person bracelet parties at Beads of Courage headquarters and they’re skilled at teaching online, too. Get ready for a fun time for a great cause!

“Designing with the Stars” is a signature fundraising event of Beads of Courage in collaboration with Katie Hacker, editor of Beadwork magazine and host of the Jewelry Artist podcast. Funds raised through these events benefit Beads of Courage and our mission of hope and healing for children coping with serious illness through arts-in-medicine programs.
