Artful Beads is Closing...

After much thought and consideration, we have decided it is time to close our doors. Unfortunately competing with the "big box" craft stores, bead shows, and online merchants has become too exhausting and stressful - and as we all know - beading should be anything but stressful!

The idea of closing is very bittersweet, as Artful Beads has been a source of great joy to us - and we have all of you to thank for that! This was a difficult decision to make, but chances are you will still see each of us in the beading world in one way or another.

Don't worry, though...Artful Beads isn't disappearing overnight! We'll still be here for a couple more months. We do have regularly scheduled classes for the month of November, and we will happily schedule sessions for anything you're interested in learning during the month of December, even though we won't have a "formal" class schedule for December. We will most likely be permanently closing in January.


Of course, when a store decides it's time to close, sales follow! Beginning November 1st, all finished jewelry and purses (excluding felted bags) will be 30% off, and everything else in the store will be 20% off.

We will also be selling much of the furniture and display pieces at unbeatable prices! If you have your eye on something, ask us about it and we'll let you know if it's available for purchase.



If you have a valid, unexpired gift certificate, now is the time to use it! We will be accepting valid, unexpired gift certificates until December 31st, but keep in mind that we are no longer replenishing our inventory, so the sooner you come in to use a gift certificate, the larger your selection will be!


Because we are going out of business, also effective November 1st all sales will be final.


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





Our October - November 2015 Classes are now posted!


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.
