About the Bead Parties

The Adera Bead Parties are a gathering of friends for fun with a purpose.  

At the parties you will string your own necklace or bracelet and will take home your jewelry to wear.  100% of the proceeds from your jewelry go directly to change a woman’s life to help sustain her family in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.


The cost of a bead party includes a place at the table to make your own necklace or bracelet, Adera facilitators, and all the fun to be with friends making your own jewelry. Adera staff will help organize the bead party and be there to instruct on jewelry making. Plus, you will have shopping time following the party to purchase from our retail store which includes jewelry, books, linens, and other accessories. 100% of the proceeds from the bead party will employ women in Ethiopia and help them provide for their children and families.
Certainly. You can host a bead party in your home, or we will gladly host you at the Adera office. Either place includes Adera staff to organize the party and help instruct on the jewelry making.

Yes you may. Adera will provide popcorn and coffee for the party. If you want to provide small bites or a full meal, don’t forget to bring plates, utensils, and napkins. You may also bring outside beverages to the bead party at the office.

For parties at the Adera office, we have 12 seats at the table. For parties at the host’s home, each host will determine the number. The minimum number of guests is 6.

 We ask for a 48-hour notice for canceling your reservation in order to provide a full refund.

Any age. We recommend a bracelet bead party for attendees under 12 years of age.  Over 12 years of age, you can choose a necklace-making bead party or a bracelet-making bead party.
