So many beads!
Margaret started making jewelry as an additional creative outlet. Her bead collection grew and grew and she started to sell off her extra's. Then the lightbulb moment hit- why not start a bead shop? Slowly but surely we started to build up inventory- then Patrick was laid off from his "day job" as many did when the economy took an unfortunate turn. So it gave us the perfect opportunity to take our little budding business and turn it into an income for our family. Not too long after Patrick officially joined the team we were able to make this happen!
Patrick is the brains, the customer service guy, and usually packs your orders while he's at it! Margaret usually list's the beads, does the photography, and has her hand in packaging as well.
We love working with each other, and have had an amazing time growing our business, curating our collection of beads, and working with the best customers in the world!
Our beads & jewelry designs have been published in Stringing Magazine, Bead Style, and a design of Margaret's will soon be published in a jewelry design book.
Patrick & Margaret
We specialize in Czech Glass Beads, Vintage, hard to find, and vintage style beads and findings. We love working here on Etsy with other creative people. We aim to please, so if there is ever a problem, we would love to assist!

Frequently asked questions
When and why are you closing your Etsy shop, and for how long? Are you going out of business?
We plan on closing our Etsy shop when our shelves are bare. We have thousands of products to offer, including many we have not yet gotten to listing. We hope to offer great deals to our wonderful loyal customers during this process! We are not going out of business, but we do want to remove all of our inventory and go on a hiatus for an undetermined amount of time while we pursue other opportunities that will require a lot of our time. We have no official plans at this moment of reopening our Etsy shop at this time after stock is sold. We are pursuing other interests in the near future and will be unable to give this shop 100%. We believe in giving 100% in whatever we do, so this is the reason for closing our Etsy shop at this time.
I need a larger quantity than what is listed, can you confirm your inventory count for me?
We will try, but to keep up with what we have and ship orders we may not always be able to do this! Join our email list to keep up with sales, and announcements regarding new inventory finds. We will be doing a final sweep once our shelves are close to bare, and listing everything we missed or additional stock we did not realize we had at a later time. We will communicate all details through our email list!
Will you ever reopen and list new products in your Etsy shop?
For now, and the immediate future we have decided to take a break from selling supplies on Etsy after we sell all of our inventory. We want to keep our customers in the know about our shop as we make decisions - so please stay in touch with us via Facebook or our e-mail list (our best way to stay in touch!) for any announcements in the future, and for current sale information.
How long will it take to ship my order during the sale?
Due to the large number of orders and questions we are receiving during our sale- please be prepared to wait up to 1-2 weeks for your order to be shipped and up to 3 business days for conversations to be answered.
