Did you know The Bead Shop has been in Manchester since 1993? Since we opened, we have met countless numbers of inspiring people from all over the world, who all have one thing in common - a love of beading! Every idea, trick or design we have picked up over the years, we have tried to pass on to our loyal customers - many of whom we have come to know as friends over the last 3 decades.
Of course, beads aren’t all we do - you’ll also find an enormous array of jewellery making supplies such as necklace chains, clasps and of course, leather cord and jewellery making tools to construct your jewellery masterpieces. We are always on hand to guide and help you to choose the right findings for your project, and our jewellery making blog is chock full of how-to guides for many common beading techniques to help you - perhaps you'll even turn jewellery making into more than just a hobby!
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, and we are constantly sourcing new and exciting products for our customers to try.
