The stylized forms of the Acanthus leaf, used on scroll motifs, borders and in architecture, go back in history to ancient Greece and Rome. Loosely based on the oldest plants in the Mediterranean, the ornamentation creates graceful form appealing to well-proportioned aesthetics.
The Acanthus Necklace is inspired by the beautiful large scrollwork focal beads with drop and round shapes. Figure 8 and Round Links interconnect to create the long flowing neck piece. A leaf like fringe with small zircon bezels dangle from the chain. The earrings mimic the Round Link and dangle from a French ear wire.

Store policies regarding Designer Series and Guest Instructor Workshops
    • All workshops require pre-registration, walk-ins will not be accepted.
    • Workshops MUST be paid for at the time of registration. Please do not email us to register for these workshops. All registrations and payments must be made over the phone by calling 240-456-4568 or by registering in person at the store.
    • All kits may be purchased directly from the instructor on the day of your workshop.Coupons may not be used for Designer Series and Guest Instructor workshops.
    • If you miss or cannot make a workshop for which you are registered, you will be given credit that can be applied to another class or store merchandise. However, because we pay guest instructors for a minimum number of students, if you were included in that minimum required number, no money will be refunded and no credit will be given. In any case 48 hours notice of cancellation is required to receive any refund or credit. Cancellations must be made by calling the store, 240-456-4568, or by stopping by the store in person. Cancellation requests received via email will not be accepted.
    • If you are registered for a workshop and cannot attend, we cannot give a refund for any reason unless the class is filled and there is someone on the waiting list who can take your place. If you can find someone to replace you in the class, that is fine also.

 ** A non-refundable $25 deposit is needed at time of registration. Please check your schedule and skill level before securing your seat. The balance is due the Wednesday prior to the event and if I don't see or hear from you prior to the event the remaining balance will be charged to the credit card used for the deposit.


Bead Soup must enforce these policies due to the high cost of bringing such high profile instructors to the shop.


Thank you for your understanding.
