Owner description: We run our beautiful bead business from an old cottage on the outskirts of town, 2 minutes from the centre. You can't miss us - we have a colorful frontage, with large multi-colored beads hanging outside. Look for our OPEN flag and the often photographed Paua Koru on the wall out front! See you soon, for lots of fun, creativity and gifts!! Come and make your own personalized gift or simply find something beautiful that we have made.

I am on holiday in Queenstown and was told that the bead shop was worth a visit. I have been there twice now and have made several pairs of earrings and a few bracelets. They make good gifts. The choice of beads is amazing and for very little money you can make original pieces of jewellery. Great for anyone who is creative. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The only thing missing is a ceiling fan as it gets very hot in there on a warm day. Overall a fun way to spend an idle hour in Queenstown.

“Best place to go and relax and make treasures for friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2011

Have been many times to bead shops around the world, this is one of the best. It is cosy and friendly. The staff are always really friendly and helpful. The atmosphere in there is warm enough to be there on your own. It is never too busy so you can really get on with what you are doing in peace.
Thanks to all the staff at the bead shop, so glad it is still runnning, definately created some pieces that will never be forgotton.
You can spend as little or as much as you want here, a great priced activity.
