Beads in 2011

It may seem like we talk about beads a lot, but they have been a large part of life at ROWAN. Not only are they an early lesson in entrepreneurship & business practices, but they also allow for members to express their creativity. Not to mention that the beads are absolutely stunning & the process for making them is so simple, yet yields such beautiful results.
