Our flagship Norwalk store anchored the corner of Washington and Water Streets in the heart of the historic SoNo neighborhood from 1987 until December, 2022. 

Beadworks Norwalk specialized in providing top quality semi-precious gemstone beads, precious findings and chains, pendants, and charms for professional jewelry designers and avid hobbyists alike. We’d like to thank the creative community of Fairfield County for the 35 years of support!


After six wonderful years in business, Beadworks Fairfield permanently closed in August, 2019. Our Post Road location was a staff favorite and we remain grateful to the creative community supported us in Fairfield and braved 95 South to visit our sister store in Norwalk.



After 30 years of business in the heart of Queen Village, our Philadelphia location closed its doors in February 2022. We are grateful to have been a fixture in the local creative and artistic community since 1992, and thank all of our amazing customers and friends who supported us throughout the years. You are an invaluable part of the Beadworks community and we appreciate you.

While we no longer have a physical location in Philadelphia, we are open online at where you will find the same high quality gemstone beads, precious metal charms and findings, and jewelry-making supplies that you know us for!


Beadworks Boston and Beyond

Beadworks was proud to have had a network of franchise sister stores in cities throughout the country including Atlanta, Boston, Cambridge, Dallas-Fort Worth, Providence, and White Plains. While economic circumstances changed and these stores have closed, the creative legacy of these stores remains strong in the hearts of the beaders that they touched.
