Beadworks began in 1983 when American jewelry designer Nancy Wall teamed up with the English company behind the Bead Shop in London, England. The company has grown from its simple mail order beginnings to multiple stores and trade events. Our newest store in Fairfield opened on Post Road in April of 2013. Nestled between Hands on Pottery, and Bodega, we are in a convenient location to spend the afternoon being creative before grabbing a bite to eat in the neighborhood.
Our experienced staff is dedicated to providing the finest in materials to support and inspire amateur and professional jewelry designers. While classic and traditional designs form a core of our range, contemporary fashion is always the driving force in our search for new products. Beadworks buyers travel to Europe and Asia to to obtain the best beads and findings at source.
Our retail stores feature distinctive gemstone beads, semi-precious beads, fine lampwork glass as well as unique findings and chain. Beadworks adds to this choice an eclectic and ever-changing mix of beads displayed in a pleasant and inspirational setting. We offer a variety of classes from beginner bead stringing to advanced jewelry design techniques. You can search for classes and register easily online here.
We are proud to be in Fairfield and appreciate how family oriented our community is. Birthday parties for kids are a big hit at our store that we love to host. Maybe your budding designer teen wants a bit more one on one attention? We offer private lessons too! We work hard to make sure your time at Beadworks is fun, memorable and most importantly creative!
