First Post .. Welcome Posted on 12 Sep 12:51

Welcome to ~ ~ first blog, a newsy extension to our gorgeous shop in Queenstown NZ.  Hopefully it will become a creative & inspiring place to dig through a treasure trove of fun beading facts, helpful tips and sources of inspiration.

This is very exciting and I am looking forward to a journey of jewelry-making with you!

The Bead Shop Queenstown is an oasis where beaders of all levels — budding beaders, beading masters and everyone in between — can come to get ideas, ask questions and (of course) make beautiful jewelry, all within a fun, relaxing, make-and-create environment. We hope this blog can be an extension of our retail store, located on the edge of downtown Queenstown.

Even if you can’t bead with us in person, we would love to have you bead with us via the web! We’ll be posting project ideas, the newest trends and — naturally — LOTS of beads.
Please feel free to post some of your own fave designs, beads & pieces
you find inspiring, and whatever else your bead-ing heart desires!

Thanks for reading, and remember to always bead boldly!


Lee, Ali,  Eliott and Jess
