Bead Museum Washington D.C. - Together, dedicated to furthering the understanding and appreciation of beads--personal ornaments that not only express human aesthetic impulses but embody deep symbolic significance, and are among mankind's earliest, most universal, and most enduring creative achievements.

HandThoughts - The Akan people of Ghana use one word for both art and craft. To them and to us, a beautiful, skillfully made creative object is a handthought, no matter what it's made of, no matter what it's made for, and no matter who makes it. Please join us. Our goal is to advance beads, beaded objects, beadwork, bead studies, and the sheer joy of beads. We can't do it without you.

National Bead Society - The National Bead Society is dedicated to the academic study of beads and dissemination of bead information.
