Beads 'N Things has been upstate New York’s head-and-wrist-quarters since 1968 for beads, stones, pearls, and the strings that bind them together. The shop sources materials from all over the globe, with Japanese and Czech glass seed beads ($2.99 for a 10-gram tube) rubbing effulgent elbows with Austria-based Swarovski glass pearls ($4.25+ per seven-inch strand). Beginning beaders and savvy stringers alike can assemble individualized creations, using flat-nose pliers ($8.99+) and semi-precious stones ($9 per eight-inch strand) to forge a bracelet commemorating their most recent escape from the jaws of the chupacabra. In addition to the millions of beads bedecking Beads 'N Things’ inventory, the shop also carries bead-themed instructional books and magazine back issues—ideal for hiding under mattresses or inside larger magazines, safe from the suspicious eyes of parents or warehouse managers.
Beads 'N Things’ patrons can use the in-store workspace for their own personal projects, with employees happy to offer shortcuts to superior stringing. In business since 1968, Beads 'N Things has seen how beading in America has changed under the administrations of nine U.S. presidents, from the pewter policies of LBJ to the lampwork glass-bead-bundle boosting of President Obama. Begin your own quest for bead-eminence with the help of Beads 'N Things.
