What You'll Get
Before the Ice Age, the only jewelry dinosaurs loved and cherished was derived predominantly from berry bushes, gravel pits, and crash-landed time machines. Embrace post-historic prettiness with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of beads and more at Beads Galore International in Tempe.
At Beads Galore, discerning beadists find satiation through a huge selection of sparkling baubles and hollowed wonders. Fiber-optic beads dazzle in strand ($4.20) or collar ($2.25) form, and heishi beads ($1–$6.75), hematite beads ($0.95–$7.80), and glass beads available in three different styles ($0.15-$17.50) fill in bracelets, necklaces, and more. A spooling selection of stringing supplies ($1.50–$34.20) keeps craft creators wound up in options, and five categories of findings such as antique brass findings ($0.75-$9.50), enable visitors to save at least a few of nature's many inanimate orphans. Bead Galore's assortment of semiprecious stones ($2.25–$21) attract enough attention to warrant dropping the "semi," and Austrian-made Swarovski-crystal beads and pendants ($0.70+) demonstrate geometric elegance in the form of cubes, hearts, stars, coral, and the artist formerly known as Prince.
The 6,500-square-foot showroom at Beads Galore is an impressive sight, one that's becomes more awe-inspiring thanks to globally eclectic acquisitions from lands such as Bali, Israel, India, the Czech Republic, and Hong Kong. Beyond supplying stringers, beaders, and crafters with the tools of the trade, the shop also generously drops trails of knowledge beads by hosting free beading classes on a regular basis.
