Of course, we constantly add stock: semi-precious stone beads, 2-hole
beads, metal beads and findings, new Swarovski® and much more.
We repair bead jewelry.
Our Etsy store has diagonal cubes and vintage Swarovski®.
Exciting bead news
Joyce Scott was awarded a MacArthur grant which carries with it a $650,000
stipend. Her 3-dimensional improvisational bead work is amazing is. She has had shows at the Baltimore Art Museum and New York's
Museum of Art and Design, to name a few. The now defunct Bead Society of
Greater Chicago brought her in several times so some of us "oldies"
have had the pleasure of meeting and studying with her.
For more 3-dimensional bead work, artist Liza Lou won a MacArthur grant several years ago.
Both artists are definitely worth an internet search.
