Founded by a former Broadway costume stitcher who's traveled around Nepal, Papua New Guinea, and Thailand, The Bead Goes On features the same sparkling strands found across Asia. If you're already a skilled stringer, you'll be able to stock up on silver, resin, wood, bone, ceramic, and semi-precious stone beads in addition to buttons and spacers. Pricing varies: handmade Thai Hill Tribe beads from the Karen Hill Tribe in Northern Thailand range from $1.75/gram to $3.05/gram, and beads made in Nepal and Israel range from $2.50/gram to $3.90/gram. Brighten collarbones with an intricately designed and infinitely mind-boggling Nepalese endless brass knot bead, or beautify ears and antennas with scarab wing earrings ($28) from The Bead Goes On's collection of exotic bug jewelry. To learn before you leap, opt for the beginner beading class. One of The Bead Goes On's patient staff members will enthusiastically instruct you on beading basics, such as knot-tying, bracelet-finishing, and how to restrain would-be robbers with shell-encrusted handcuffs.
