Beadworks story began in 1987

A jewelry artist founded Beadworks as a mail order company back in the days of print catalogs. It rapidly grew to stores in Connecticut and Pennsylvania with franchise sister stores around the country. Today, we’ve returned to our roots as mail order, this time in the digital age. Our mission remains the same: to share the joy and creativity of jewelry making.
