Designing With The Stars 2024
DESIGNING WITH THE STARS – BENEFITING BEADS OF COURAGE
Designing with the Stars is a signature fundraising event of Beads of Courage in collaboration with Katie Hacker, former editor of Beadwork magazine and host of the Beads, Baubles, and Jewels on PBS. 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. Every Designing with the Stars event provides a fun, festive opportunity to experience the joy of creating jewelry with the guidance of our All-Star jewelry designers!
HURRY! Tickets are limited! Adults and teens ages 16 and up are welcome to participate; children 10 and up are also welcome to register but will need adult supervision with the projects. Thank you!
