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 was in queenstown for a week and so glad when I stumbled upon this little shop I actually saw the advertisement for a jewellery making night with pizza and wine so I put my name down? It was a great evening only a few turned out but that was better as we had the shop to ourselves I made lots of things from rings, to bracelets and a wire heart necklace thoroughly enjoyed my evening and taken away some great knowledge and skills :)) I could have spent hours in here, thanks so much to the bead shop :)

THANK YOU for making the evening a success with your presence! I had such a fantastic and memorable time teaching and learning from the attendees that evening, yourself being half of them ;)

All the best in your future adventures and we will look forward to another visit when you come around our way!

Kindly,

A quirky little shop away from the main drag and souvenir shops with a great selection of beads and accessories. The decor outside announces that this shop is fun. The service was awesome too.

Hey there sarah... sorry I didn't reply sooner, but thank you for taking the time to comment! Would just like to add, that the Bead Shop Queenstown caters for all ages 4yrs to 104yrs!! You must have visited the shop either during the school holidays or at a time when there happened to be children there :) We welcome all ages to make and create their own style, with a little help from the staff if needed whenever they like. Hope to see you again soon... come and give it a go or join one of our Pizza and wine evenings, on the first friday of every month!! :D

I took Miss 6 here for an activity on her birthday while we were away. She had a great time making a bracelet with lots of beads to choose from at a low cost.
