Dr. Gail Devoid, President
Carol Darling-Co-Vice President
Carol started beading about twelve years. ago. She lived in Manchester and found there were not any bead stores at the time. So, she came to Concord and got to string a bracelet. A new bead store opened in Manchester and there Carol took a seed bead class. She was hooked.
Her favorite beading technique is herringbone, Russian spiral and peyote. She has sold pieces to friends, and make items for gifts.
Carol says she beads mostly for the pleasure it gives her. Then, she gets to wear her best.E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
I joined the Bead Society about ten years ago and have learned so much from our members! I formerly was the recording secretary for two years, and this year I serve as Co-Vice President with Carol Darling. I don’t have training in the arts, but I come from a family who loved to work with their hands, from sewing, cooking, woodworking and other various crafts. Beading came about after many years of embellishing my hand made garments, and today it is a soothing passion.

About 10 years ago I discovered I wanted to make jewelry when I remade a department store bracelet into a "designer watch". I took that idea and applied it to some bead weaving techniques to create more fashion watches and bracelets. Since then I've expanded my skills to include wire wrapping, soldering, forging and other metalworking techniques. The Bead Society has given me the opportunity to continue learning new techniques while enjoying the company of many talented and creative people.
