The Best Little Bead Shop in Southern Illinois

I started beading because I couldn't find the earrings I wanted in the stores. I was looking for long dangling earrings – of course now they are very popular. My hobby grew until I was selling my creations at festivals. But as my collection and talent grew, I realized that there was a need for a bead shop in the area.

We have been in business since 2002 and in June of 2010, we opened our storefront in Cobden, IL. Our store carries all varieties of beads, findings, tools of all kinds, stringing materials, offers classes and beading parties! Our handmade jewelry & beads are for sale here on Etsy or in our Cobden store. Stop by & visit us if you are ever in southern Illinois!

We offer a group on Facebook for beading and fiber enthusiasts, Southpass Beads and Fibers. Members of the group can participate in our Southpass Beads Fire Mountain Gems Beading CoOp. Contact Southpass Beads on Facebook for more information!
