Beader's Budget Buster! Beautiful Selection of Beads!
Jun 2018 • Friends
An amazing bead store in Lebanon, Ohio?! Who knew? Thankfully, my sister did! We visited Bead Circus yesterday and were blown away by the selection of beads! Everything from natural stone & pearls, Czech glass & pearls, Swarovski crystals & pearls, findings galore, cloisonné, dichroic, lampwork, whimsical, charms, precious and base metals, darling kits, and the list goes on. And all of it beautifully displayed and accessible. Your first impression is of a small store, but one look around and you realize it's a small store with a BIG inventory! My sister and I were in the shop for more than 2 hours and we weren't even taking a class--just shopping and depleting our bank accounts.

The owner, Jackie, is warm and welcoming and VERY helpful! She will help you hunt things down and is more than willing to check the storeroom for you. She gave us lots of helpful advice and inspiration. I don't live in the area, but hope to come back to take one of her classes. She is a skilled and creative bead weaver and stringer! Knowing that I was returning home this week, Jackie was willing to stay late for us so that we could find everything we "needed." And even then, on the way out, I spied more beautiful beads so I may have to sneak back before I depart for Minnesota.

Czech beads (single and multi-holed) and Swarovski are my thing and I was dazzled by her selection. I found so many beads and colors I had never seen before and, believe me, I've seen a LOT! She also had a wonderful array of seed bead colors (another of my weaknesses) and some unusual sizes and shapes. I don't do a lot with natural stone and pearls, but she has an entire room filled with strands and loose beads/cabochons for those of you who do. AND we found her prices to be very competitive, even with some of the online vendors.

If you are a beader and are visiting (or live in, you lucky duck) this area, I would highly recommend a trip to Bead Circus. You will not come out disappointed or empty-handed and will probably have to hide your new stash from your husband. ;)
