1 Stop Bead Shop
Lisa Busch—a jeweler, beader, and crafter—often left her local bead shops unsatisfied by their paltry inventory. When most people would have accepted the status quo and started making jewelry out of upcycled banana peels, Lisa took action, opening 1 Stop Bead Shop as a haven where she and other beaders could find all of the materials they needed under one roof. She started stocking the necessities and more, including tools, books, semiprecious gems, Swarovski crystal, glass, wire, and findings. In less than seven years, her inventory grew fivefold, requiring the shop to lay down roots in a shiny new 3,200-square-foot facility.
In addition to supplying self-sufficient beaders, Lisa shares the art of crafting with newcomers through her roster of classes. A staff of 26 instructors teaches approximately 100 lessons each quarter, ranging from beading and crocheting to wire wrapping and girls’ night out parties.
