Beadtrails are a fun and affordable way to collect beautiful pieces of meaningful jewellery.
Beadtrails was created in Summerland in 2010 by Karen Griggs. At present there are nine Okanagan communities for you to explore: Kelowna/Lake Country, West Kelowna, Peachland, Summerland, Naramata, Penticton, Okanagan Falls, Oliver and Osoyoos. The beads can be found in Okanagan wineries, campgrounds, restaurants, boutiques, art studios, Summerland Visitor Centre and other fantastic places in the region! Each business has its own unique signature bead for you to find and collect.
The BC Lodging and Campgrounds Association is pleased to support the Beadtrails initiative.
