So excited to announce that River Song Beads will now use biodegradable bead bags for shipping! Once in the landfill, these reusable bags breakdown naturally within 10 years. So happy to take another step to lessen our impact on the earth!
I recently added new colors of my popular wood spike beads. Several customers are making super cool statement necklaces by mixing these with gemstones and metal.

About

It all started with my grandmother's collection of necklaces...

I've loved beads since I was a little girl. I remember spending hours exploring the drawers of my grandma's jewelry chest, admiring all the pretty things she had. I was always most drawn to her gemstone necklace strands. I would layer myself with necklace upon necklace and sit criss-cross under the dining room table intently inspecting the earthy colors and interesting patterns of each stone. Those memories always bring a smile to my face.

Since then, I've been a bit of a rock and bead hound. Whenever I go hiking, I always seem to find a couple of pebbles that I have to tuck in my pocket to take home. And as for passing a bead shop on the street... yep, pretty much impossible. I'm continually pulled towards pretty little stones I can hold in my hand and marvel at.

A few years ago, I decided that opening a bead shop would be a good excuse to continue my bead collecting... you know... buy beads with the plan to "share with others" and end up keeping quite a few along the way. ☺
Our family goal was to earn enough money to pay for a family vacation each year. The amazing thing is that the shop has grown and grown and is now my full-time job. The opportunity to be a small business owner doing something I love is very exciting! The fact that I can do it from home, in a way that is family friendly, is icing on the cake!

I feel passionate about beads and sell what I love. Hopefully, as you wander through my shop, you'll find something that you love too!

Proud to say that my shop has been featured in the following places:

Will I get the exact beads pictured?

To keep my beads affordable, I do everything I can to keep my overhead costs down. This includes using my own stock photos in my listings. All photos used in my listings have been taken by me and represent the lot of beads I have in stock. You will get a similar bead strand to the one in the picture, but it may not be the exact one. If you want more specific pictures you are welcome to ask.
Occasionally full strands will be shipped as 2 half strands.

What if I want a larger quantity than what is available?

I restock items regularly. If you want more than the quantity available for purchase, just send me a quick message. I am happy to order beads especially for you. I generally restock every 1-2 weeks, so you shouldn't have to wait very long.
