Originals Beads and Gems

At Originals Beads and Gems, sparkling jewels, minerals, and beads dazzle eyes with their glossy colors and willingness to come together for a cause. Customers can sort through the wide inventory and take home materials for solo crafting, or put in a request with the design-savvy staff for hard-to-find beads or beading materials. Crafters looking to learn a new skill can enroll in one of many classes that cater to all skill levels. During three-hour beginner classes, experienced instructors impart the essentials of single-strand jewelry, and in intermediate and advanced classes, students can learn how to stamp metal, wrap beads, or choose a favorite between their two wrists. For customers whose ideas for jewelry design exceed their skills, the creative staff at the design center can weave opulent adornments from their customers’ materials and design ideas.

    “Originals Beads is my favorite place to shop for beads and to take jewelry classes. The owner, Barbara, and her staff are very friendly and helpful. I like that the beads are clearly labeled and that they will tell you whether or not a stone is treated (dyed or heat enhanced, etc). The instructors are all first-rate, successful jewelry artists/artisans. ... I've moved to Phoenix recently and, though I'm sure there are many fine bead shops here, I will miss Originals. Thank you, Barbara and all your staff and instructors, for sharing your love and knowledge of beads and jewelry making, and for your encouragement in this art.”
