The Bead Shop's $100 Gift Certificate Giveaway

By on Monday, February 03, 2014 153 Comments

I first came across the California based jewelry supplier, The Bead Shop, through their marvelous tutorials on Youtube.  I wrote about their Multi Patterned Leather Wrapped Cord Bracelet Tutorials  and Mosaic Tila Bead Headband and Bracelet Tutorials because they were such refreshing approaches to popular techniques and beads.

Herringbone Wrapped Bracelet- Fresh Berries
The Bead Shop was founded in 1982 by Janice Parsons.  It is the online presence of the old Bead Shop once located in Palo Alto. They said, "Based on the culture of our old brick and mortar store, our website was created to reflect the artistic passion and beading knowledge of its owner and team.  We continually push ourselves to provide our customers with new inspirational videos and handouts that give beaders of every skill level the confidence to create beautiful jewelry."

Their shop sells all sorts of jewelry supplies but with a distinct emphasis on those needed for micro-macrame, knotting and wrapping jewelry. They've clearly sourced the world for the best materials as you can get supplies like Irish waxed linen, Korean waxed cords and Chinese knotting cords.  They also stock many colors of C-lon, Superlon and the US made Tuft cord which are used for micro-macrame jewelry.  There is a large range of leather cords and also something called Compassion Suede which is not made from animals.

Their colorful range of threads, cords including leather come in different sizes to suit the varying bead hole sizes. I found their guide, Stitchionary, extremely useful in sorting out what sort of threads and cords to use for what projects. Indeed their site is peppered with useful tips and tricks.


For example, Chinese knotting cord (0.5 mm) is used for the herringbone wrapped Greek leather bracelet shown above. I featured the tutorial before but it doesn't hurt to see the video tutorial by Nicole Anderson again. Love the changes of laddered beads along the long bracelet!



Also used in the video is KO thread.  KO thread is made in Japan and is specifically designed for beaders.  It's a "strong, fray-resistant and non-stretchy thread" which can be used with needles but is stiff enough to use the tail as a self needle.  That last bit is useful if you do like making bead wrapped cord bracelets.

Heart's Desire is a lovely micro macrame necklace design tutorial by Janice Parsons.Gemstone rondelles are knotted together with micro C-lon.  Check out the video tutorial here.




The Bead Shop also carry beautiful kimono cord.One of my favorite Bead Shop tutorials is one of the easiest. A must see!  Janice Parsons demonstrates in this video, the ancient technique of silk wrapping which requires no glue or visible knots to make this kimono cord necklace.  It can be wrapped twice to make a bracelet and without the button, a eyeglass cord!




A fun store to explore! I can attest to that as I have spent hours on the site.

  21. That KO Thread sounds fantastic! I'm always losing my needles, or not being able to find the right one, and end up ditching my plans over it. Having a thread that I could skip the needle for would be just plain wonderful. As it stands, the only one I can use like this without constantly trimming the frays, is tiger tail, and it can be too stiff for a lot of things.
    Count me in, please :) I'm also a blog subscriber :D

  22. When in lived in San Francico I shopped at the Bead Shop when I was in the Palo Alto area. There was always an interesting assortment of beads, supplies & classes, & the virtual Bead Shop continues the tradition.

    I live where I have limited access to beads & supplies, so mail order shopping is important to me. This gift certificate would go a long way toward feeding my need to bead!

  109. I LOVE the Bead Shop! I have been buying from them for several years and they are AWESOME! I've emailed questions and always gotten a quick response. The staff always goes above and beyond; in fact, I ordered the Ultimate Design Board thinking it had pegs for knotting. Sam called me to say there were not actual pegs on the board and apologized for the description not being clear enough. I was SO impressed that she called me to be sure the board was exactly what I wanted. I kept it and love it!

    I love their videos as well. I have made several bracelets from their "In the Garden" series - "Honey Bee," a cheery yellow, and "Orchid," a pretty, deep purple. The video made it so simple to do; easy-to-follow and very detailed without bogging you down with information.

    I have also made their leather Tahoe Bracelet for myself and several friends.

    I can also attest to the quality of their gemstone strands. The carnelian strand I purchased last fall was beautiful and very sparkly. I made a simple strand necklace and get lots of compliments.

    Can't say enough about the quality of their products or their customer service. Love them!

  110. Doesn't look like my first post went through so I'm redoing. LOVE the Bead Shop! They have fabulous products and their customer service is outstanding. I bought an Ultimate Bead Board thinking it had pegs on it. Sam personally called me to explain it did not and offered me a full refund because she wanted me to be completely satisfied with my purchase. I loved the board and kept it but was so impressed that she actually called me!

    Also love their videos - very instructional but simple and informative. I've made several bracelets from their "In the Garden" series - "Honey Bee," which is a cheery yellow, and "Orchid," which is a rich purple. I've also made several of the leather Tahoe bracelets.

    The quality of their gemstone strands is also outstanding. I ordered some carnelian last fall and made a simple strand necklace. Because the stones were so sparkly, it stood well on its own.

    Can't say enough about their quality and customer service! Love them!
