We are a Pittsburgh Area group interested in beading, wire wrapping and jewelry making in general. There is no membership fee -- and I even try to BRIBE people to show up with beads! The more people who show up, the more we can do!

We offer the best selection and best quality beads and supplies to the Pittsburgh area at mail-order/wholesale prices.  But, you have to make an appointment, or come in during our scheduled hours.  You can follow us on Twitter -- http://twitter.com/betterbeads -- to get updates and reminders as to when we are open, and what specials are going on.

We have relocated from Squirrel Hill (2001-2013) to New Kensington (2013-?)

We now own the building, so no more losing our lease!

We have a HUGE amount of space, so we can finally show off most of the stuff we have, and we have a lot of storage area to keep things in stock.
