Beadworks began in 1983 when American jewelry designer Nancy Wall teamed up with the English company behind the Bead Shop in London, England. Nancy’s niece, Abigail Wall, purchased the company in 2007 and is now the owner/curator of Beadworks. Today, Beadworks is 100% female-operated, culturally diverse, and has two locations in PA and CT.
Beadworks’ products are selected by a team of experienced and dedicated jewelry makers. Our Beadworks staff are committed to providing the finest materials to support and inspire the creation of professional handcrafted jewelry. While classic and traditional designs form a core of our range, contemporary fashion is always the driving force in our search for new products.
Our retail stores feature beautiful AAA+ gemstone beads, semi-precious beads, charms & pendants, as well as unique findings and precious chains. Beadworks adds to this choice, an eclectic and ever-changing mix of beads displayed in a pleasant and inspirational setting.
Our mission is simple. Our goal is to create, inspire, and spread joy through the art of jewelry-making. Beadworks is a safe haven for jewelry designers, hobbyists, and friends & families looking for a creative outlet. Jewelry making is one of the most ancient forms of self-adornment. Our mission is to keep that fire burning.
