Beading the World’s Longest Beaded Necklace

This summer we are attempting to bead the World’s Longest Beaded Necklace. This beautiful beaded necklace is already 2,100 feet, and will be 7 miles long when finished! The necklace will be officially measured by the Guinness World Records on October 3, 2018, at the Pocono Raceway.

If your school, summer camp or community group would like to help us complete this project, please contact us for the details.
