I'm not sure how many of you are jewellery makers but Bizzarr beads and most other bead stores i've found have all closed down, Does anyone know of any that are still around?

Hi Ashleigh,

I went looking for Bizzarr not too long ago as well and was very sad to find they had gone. I have done some net research and I can't seem to find any "shops" out there, it appears that everyone may have moved to on line stores now.

But if you do happen to find any, I'd love to hear about them too!

Thanks Brooke!
Yeah i'm pretty disappointed, sometimes you just need to walk into a store and be inspired by what you see.

I'll let you know what i find!

There's one in North Balwyn, at the corner of Doncaster and Burke Roads ( I haven't been in there, but I drive past it once a week...

Also a quick Google for 'beads melbourne' reveals that there are a few others dotted around the place.

What about The Bead Company on Smith Street in Collingwood is that still around they have a pretty decent range of beads and findings.

Kate is right... Harmony beads is still going strong... It has a wide variety of beads and fixing and can deffinatly help if your looking for inspiration... they have a large selection of ready made items...
There is also a bead shop off on of the arcades in Swanston Street (you have to go up a level) but unfortunatly i can not remember what its called!
There are also a couple still on Smith Street though Harmony Beads are my favourite!
Hope that helps!
