We are now closed....Thank you for 10 wonderful years!!


Celebrating Artful Beads...

As a reminder, our final day for business will be Saturday, January 30th. While this is, no doubt, a sad time, it is also a time to celebrate! We have had an amazingly fun time running Artful Beads...designing classes, coming up with all those fun project names, learning a LOT of new techniques, buying beads, beads, and more beads, and - of course - getting to know all of you who have made the last 10 years possible. We could not have asked for a more successful run as a bead store in a drastically changing beading climate.

We hope that everyone will come out and help us celebrate Artful Beads!!


Here's where you can find us now that Artful Beads is closed!!!


Even though we are closing our brick-and-mortar store, you just can't take "beading" out of who we are! While we are all still forming our plans for the future, here is what we have on tap for our starting points once Artful Beads is closed:

Amy will be vending at a few bead, art, and craft shows here and there (she is currently signed up for South Jersey Bead Society's Bead Binge in Cherry Hill, March 19th&20th, and she is still pondering the possibility of BeadFest in April) as well as selling on Etsy. Amy's Etsy Shop is Trixie's Jewel Box (Click HERE to visit Amy's Etsy shop.). Her   plan is to create components out of metal clay and then design jewelry, kits, and patterns around these handcrafted components. Her Etsy shop and show booths will feature these items as well as additional supplies.

Barbara and Laina will still be active in the beading community. They will be teaching beading classes at local shops and community art centers in the Central Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania areas. They will be emailing out information on the locations, times, and images and descriptions of the projects. Kits will be available for purchase and a materials list will be provided. They also have a brand new Etsy shop called DivaBeaders (Click HERE to visit Barbara and Laina's Etsy shop.). Their shop will feature kits, patterns, and materials. Please be sure to check back frequently to see the new items posted. Barbara and Laina look forward to continuing to provide excellent services, classes, and merchandise.

Please keep in mind that since we are still working towards wrapping up Artful Beads related business, it will take us a little time to get our new beading adventures and Etsy shops "up to speed". Please check our shops often - we will be adding new items on a regular basis and as quickly as we can!


We want to thank each and every one of you for your support through the years.




Artful Beads - A Bead Store and So Much More!

We first opened the doors of Artful Beads on March 4th, 2006, and the experience has turned into something much more spectacular than we ever could have imagined!

At Artful Beads, we strive to bring you exceptional variety, quality, and service.

We pride ourselves on our unique and expansive selection of classes that range from beginner to advanced. Whether you want to learn basic stringing or wire-wrapping techniques, beadweaving, macrame, or Precious Metal Clay, we have a class for you!


Amy, Barbara, and Laina


We love to buy beads just as much as you do, and we are certain you will find our assortment of beads to reach beyond your wildest expectations! Our selection of fire-polished and pressed glass beads from the Czech Republic is extraordinary, featuring a wide variety of colors, finishes, shapes, and sizes. We have seed beads to suit most any project. Our gemstones range from delicate and sparkly to big and chunky - and everywhere in-between! We have pearls, lucite flowers, Swarovski crystals and an incredible collection of antiqued brass filigree.

Artful Beads is truly a beader's paradise!

Located in Pennington, NJ, Artful Beads Studio and Workshop is just 3 miles north of Route 95.
