Gosh, where to begin?! Let’s just start off with the best ways to describe The L.H. Bead Gallery... Unique, Gorgeous, Amazing staff, Kid friendly, Creative, One of a Kind, and You may never want to leave! Starting from my very first experience at the Bead Galley aka my “Happy Place”, I had no idea what to expect; but I was immediately welcomed and blown away by a walk-in workshop! Rather you are an experienced beader, new learner, bead browser, or just a shopper on the hunt for that perfect gift; Lisa (Owner) and her team make sure you find what you’re looking for...and probably something you didn’t even know you needed along the way haha! As I have become a regular at my Happy Place, I am just now truly starting to realize what all The L.H. Bead Gallery has to offer! Digging in to all of her gems gets all of your creativity flowing and you might end up building your own piece! Shop kits, beads, stones, leather, findings, or even ready made jewelry and my personal favorite; Lisa’s lampwork! Now The Bead Gallery isn’t just the place to purchase Artisan jewelry, it’s the place where the magic happens! Lisa creates one of a kind pieces created from different glass techniques! Her lampwork as well as other styles of handmade jewelry are each one of a kind and truly an amazing process! As you shop you can collect materials in easy shop contains that make it great to personalize a piece and see what you’re working with! Buy beads by the strand, by the piece, or even by the bag at Treasure island! Treasure island is the perfect hunting grounds for young and adult beaders! My 2 year old Son loves to pick out his favorite goodies(and mom does too!) Search through tons of gems to collect your own bag of treasures and take them home or create your perfect piece by purchasing all your materials at The Bead Gallery! If you love your new pieces so much you can’t wait to take them home, talk with the team and get all set up before you go! Definitely a place to stop in while visiting PCB! Perfect place for all ages and you can create a unique shopping experience the whole family will love! Check out Lisa and her AMAZING Team on Facebook and Instagram! Tune in every Thursday for fun Facebook lives on L.H. Bead Gallery’s Facebook page! #shoplocal#shopsmall!

I absolutely LOVE shopping for beading supplies at this store for many reasons. Lisa, the owner is extremely selective in the inventory that goes into her store. She hand picks every strand of beads that she hangs on her walls by going to special bead shows. I can select from the most high quality supplies available within a few hundred miles around. I ALWAYS learn something new, like a new design or what to do with components. I did shop at a large Jewelry Show in Atlanta, but since I discovered LH Bead Gallery there is no need to drive there, spend nights in a hotel and pay for food and gas.
Lisa's staff is very friendly and welcoming. They help you locate what you are looking for and they offer suggestions. I always leave inspired and motivated to create more exciting and beautiful designs. I can't wait to go there next week for a shopping trip!!

This is one of my happy places! Beautiful, high quality beads, components and jewelry and the staff is amazing. Lisa does gorgeous lamp work. I have taken several classes and have enjoyed them all. See a lot of visitors to the Panama City area in the classes! Great way to spend time and learn something fun 💕.

The LH Bead Gallery is the best bead store. Not only do they have the largest selection of beads but, they have the most unique handmade jewelry and gifts in town. Every time I travel I always find a bead store and no other bead store I have found comes close to LH Beads. They have the best prices and great selection of sterling silver, kazuri beads, pearls, and my favorite roman glass and much more. Lisa the owner is so talented in making one-of-kind handmade lampwork beads/jewelry. I am blessed to have over 90 pieces of her beautiful jewelry. Every piece is so special and I always get complements when I wear them. I love her work she is such a talented artist. I have also taken classes at the bead store and all the employees are so friendly and helpful. They have a huge selection of classes to choose from. You can take basic jewelry making classes to advanced classes. You can make jewelry to go with any outfit and you will have a blast. Oh yeah, they also have wonderful unique gifts. I love this store and I know you will too.

I make jewelry to sell and I've been in a lot of bead stores. This one rocks. The selection is fabulous and the prices are good, but I cannot say enough things about how helpful and terrific Lisa and her staff are. Her generosity is stunning -- she shares designs and ideas, lets you take photos, gives spot lessons on technique, advises and suggests. Her own glass bead work is charming and lovely (oh, if she'd only give lessons!) and the whole shop is just a winner. It's always tempting to buy stuff on line and of course I do sometimes but a local shop like this one is beyond compare. She's got my loyalty for life!

Whether you're visiting Panama City or live here, this place is amazing. You'll find a huge collection of beads from metal and glass to shell and stone, plus everything you need to create one-of-a-kind pieces that are uniquely you. The classes are designed for everyone from beginners to those who are more advanced but are looking for new techniques. The staff is very helpful and the owner is a true artist. Instead of shopping for the right piece of jewelry I can now create something special. And, it's fun! Can't wait to go back!

What can I say other than what a wonderful place that has just about everything you could think of to create that one of a kind piece. Lisa & her staff are so pleasant and helpful. The classes that Lisa puts together on a monthly basis are wonderful. I have learned to make a lot of cool items that I have been able to replicate and give as gifts. Classes I have been to have had a lot of visitors who are on vacation so that should tell you how good the instructors are. The store not only has beads but a lot of items that are perfect for gifts. Lisa makes the most awesome lampbeads that are a one of a kind. Thanks for visiting and hope you will make a trip to the store!! :)

i have been to lots of beads stores when I travel with my husband and this is by far the best I've ever been in. They are very friendly and helpful. If you want leather and pearls they have it or one of a kind beads. Well worth stopping in and seeing what they have. I will be back.
