Did you know The Bead Shop has been in Manchester since 1993 and over the years we have met some very inspiring people who love beads. We have shared all of our jewellery making & craft ideas with our customers and learnt new designs and tricks from them.

Although we can’t convey the atmosphere of our uk bead store online, we hope you find the site as fun and enticing as shopping in person. We pride ourselves on our unique and stylish beads from all around the world, which includes glass beads, wooden beads, pearls beads and Swarovski Crystals. Plus our wide selection of beading supplies for jewellery making. As bead lovers, we are always finding amazing new products and adding them to our website.

“Whether you have a bit of experience with beads & jewellery making or you are a complete beginner, don’t panic. Everyone goes at their own pace and we have experienced and friendly jewellery teachers to guide you along the way.

Choose from a range of jewellery making classes to suit you. Our jewellery making courses include wire working, jewellery making for beginners, Tiara making, pearl Knotting and much, much more!

You might want to take some inspiration from some of the jewellery you have seen on the high street or that your friends have been wearing recently.

Some of the favourite beads to work with when making jewellery are glass beads, wooden beads and plastic beads. There are even Swarovski crystals for you to choose from if you think that they would be appropriate for the type of jewellery that you are making.
