Discovering new beads

We are always on the lookout for new beads and beading supplies to enhance our customers’ beading experience. One of the most exciting things about running The Bead Shop is when we find a completely new genre of beading. Our most recent discovery, Kumihimo is one such new beading technique that we discovered and shared with our customers who have really taken to it. 

Our beading expertise, shared

Because we know how rewarding it is to share ideas and knowledge about beading, we have created our very own Beading Blog, which we hope will help beginners and even inspire veteran beaders who have been beading for a long time. 

Bead shop gift vouchers

Giving the gift of creativity is special – which is why we have created our Bead Shop Gift Vouchers enabling you to give friends and family a voucher of any denomination to spend on our store on craft beads, beading supplies and even beading books. Inspire a whole new generation of bead fanatics with a gift that could create a hobby or even a profession for life.
