“So much fun! I don’t think you could ever put this together “wrong”! Beautiful selection of colours and textures in the BEAD STEW Kits. This Bead Stew Party would be a perfect Girls Night!… Just add wine :-)” ~ Gayle S., Calgary, AB

xo Suzie Q (And, for goodness sake, remember to wash your hands!)
Being creative feels good, so Suzie Q Studio BEAD STEW Jewelry-Making Parties make the perfect get-together for any occasion!
If you’re not already familiar with our Serendipity BEAD STEW Kits, each “Bangle-icious” Bracelet kit contains all of the yummy ingredients you’ll need to make one bangle-style bracelet, including unique, premium-quality beads made from various materials such as: metal, stone, glass, enamel, resin, crystal and acrylic.
The scrumptious bead combinations in all of our BEAD STEW Kits have been artfully, hand-picked in Limited Edition quantities, by an ultra-creative, Suzie Q Studio “Bead-Whisperer”, for you to make a one-of-a-kind bracelet that’ll have that super-cool look of multiple bangles stacked on your wrist. Plus, we save you the time and stress that can be involved in choosing beads (a visit to a bead store can be over-whelming for some), so that you have the fun part of making your project…It’s as easy as “1, 2, 3”!
Whether you choose to have a theme for your bracelet-making party or not, think of your Gal-Pal BEAD STEW Gathering as “Paint Night 2.0”, except, you’ll be able to WEAR the piece of original art that you’ll create, instead of hanging it on your wall! Also, every time you wear your one-of-a-kind bangle-style bracelet, you'll remember the wonderful time you had creating it with your special crew of Gal-Pals… Pretty sweet, right?!
BEAD STEW Kit: “Wine & Avocado Toast”
The very first BEAD STEW Party happened November 2019 at Laurie MacKay’s fabulous home in NW Calgary. It was so much fun, and Laurie and her Gal-Pals all created beautiful “Bangle-icious” bracelets, as you can see for yourself further down on this page.
Laurie MacKay is an accomplished Sommelier and has been a regular wine and craft beer columnist on CBC Radio One since 2006, which, of course, means she’s super-passionate about wine. Laurie’s passion for vino is vividly demonstrated from the quote on her website — Soulvines.com ...
"I believe wine is not simply a drink, it is also a journey. Every time you open a bottle, think of the people who crafted it, the country it hails from and when it was made. When you see every bottle as a unique journey, then the whole experience is enriched.” ~ Laurie MacKay
With Laurie’s love of vino, it came as no surprise to me when the BEAD STEW Bracelet Kit that caught her eye was “Wine & Avocado Toast”… How serendipitous, right?!
In addition to Laurie’s immense talents in the wine department, I discovered that she’s also a terrific writer when I received her email describing her BEAD STEW Bracelet-Making Experience:
"All my friends are thrilled with their bracelets. Most of them didn't know each other, so it was fun to watch them “click" over "playing" with beads. I think which bead stew bracelet package you pick, and how you put it together, tells a bit about your personality. Usually I would be methodical and plan my patterns, but on Sunday I threw that approach to the wind and decided to be a free spirit with my "Wine & Avocado Toast" design. I love what I created! I also appreciated the idea that it felt fail safe since all the beads are pre-selected by you to look great together! The icing on the cake was that you brought so many additional beads with you so we could add a little extra bling, if desired. I keep looking down at my bracelet and thinking - I made that! - and feeling immensely proud. Coral has already let me know that she is keen to do a Bead Stew party as an appreciation event at her office. That made my day!” ~ Laurie MacKay
BTW… For more info about Laurie and her dedication to all things “wine-ish", please check out her website, Soulvines.com … She’s super-cool, that’s for sure!
Laurie's friend Coral works at a large insurance company, and after creating her gorgeous “Blueberry Snow Cone” bracelet, she said that offering BEAD STEW Parties would be great for social activities they run for their various departments, so I look forward to bringing the Good Creative Fun of bracelet-making to Coral’s company sometime soon!
Do you have a large table at your work place? If so, it’ll be perfect for you and your co-workers to have a BEAD STEW Party for all kinds of celebrations...
• Holidays (a great alternative to the “office luncheon” or afterwork drinks)
• Birthdays (who likes dry cake, anyway?)
• Team Building
• Good Creative Fun!
