About The Beaded Venus
The Beaded Venus opened in the summer of 2002 and has welcomed thousands of beaders from all over the world.
The store namesake, “Venus on the Halfshell” is a peyote stitched sculpture that owner Jennifer Lowe created in 1999. “Venus” has won several awards and in 2005 traveled to museums across the country as part of Beadwork Magazine’s Beaded Figure Exhibit. She is currently on display at the store.
Some of the thousands of items we carry are: Seed Beads, Delica Beads, Czech pressed glass and lampworked beads, vintage glass, gems, charms, books, tools, wire, PMC, Natural seeds and pods from the Amazon, local artist beads, art glass, gifts, one of a kind jewelry and beads from the far corners of the universe.
On top of our fantastic inventory, we also have a customer play table with tools , lights, and magnifiers for customer use. Our staff are talented beaders and artists that would love to help you get started or offer inspiration.
We also offer a full range of beading and jewelry making classes. Our kids parties are hugely popular as are our adult parties such as Bridesmaids and Girls Night Out. Most of our classes can be arranged as a party as well.
We can also come out to your office or group for classes and parties, just call the store for details.
In addition to do it yourself we offer custom design and repair. We love the unusual and old and can repair, re-string or re-design your old jewelry to make it wearable again.
