The Bead Shop, Bead Jewellery & Craft Supplies

Hello and welcome to the online bead shop version of The Nottingham Bead Shop’s friendly bead shop! We’ve been selling beads and craft materials in our purple shop since 2000 and online since 2002. We have a passion for all things beads, jewellery and craft and love sharing our beading and jewellery making knowledge. We run a regular program of creative workshops from silversmithing to bead weaving and glass fusing to tiara making.

If you’re new to jewellery making why not check out our how to start beading page. As well as videos for beading beginners we also have a wide range of free bead, craft & jewellery projects and patterns. Our bead kits, which are designed and made in house by our beading experts, provide a great place to get started and make fantastic gifts for crafters and creatives.

Both in our online bead shop and Nottingham store we have everything you need to make your own jewellery. We specialise in designing and making our own craft kits & jewellery making kits. Our range includes all the leading beading brands including jewellery wires from Soft Flex and Beadalon. Tools, beads and threads from The Beadsmith. Crystal beads and pendants from Preciosa Crystal. Czech glass seed beads, bugles and fire polished beads from Preciosa. Precision Japanese delica beads from Miyuki. Polymer clay to make your own beads and sculptures from Fimo. Along with a wide range of semi-precious gemstones, plated and sterling silver findings and much more. We have all the storage solutions you’ll need and a helpful haberdashery section.

Jewellery Making Classes & Parties

Our creative workshops are a perfect introduction to learning to make your own jewellery. We cover a wide range of beading, silversmithing, wire work, macrame and more. They are held both in person in our Nottingham shop and virtually via Zoom. Workshops can also be held in local venues, ideal for team building and creative social events. We specialize in children’s beading parties and crafty hen do’s. You can also rent our fully kitted out workshop room to teach your own craft workshops.
