Beads 'N Things

Beads ‘N Things was first established in the Village of Pittsford in 1968. Over the decades, the store transitioned from a bead shop in the 1960’s and 70’s, to a bead and craft shop during the 70’s and 80’s. In 1995, the shop was converted back to its origins of the 60’s and 70’s... back to a full-service bead shop!

We stock a unique and inspiring selection of quality beads from across the USA and around the world. Among the millions of beads we carry in our shop, we offer Japanese and Czech glass seed and bugle beads, stunning Swarovski crystals and rhinestones, Czech and vintage German glass beads, gorgeous handmade lampwork beads, and thousands of strands of semi-precious stones and freshwater pearls. We also carry sterling silver and gold-filled beads along with an impressive selection of quality sterling, gold-filled, pewter and plated metal findings. 

In addition to our bead assortment, we carry all of the tools and supplies needed for your beading projects along with a wide array of instructional books, from beginner to advanced beading levels. We also offer the most popular beading magazines, including back issues.

Do you have jewelry in need of repair? Feel free to bring in your pieces and we will provide a free evaluation. We'll also supply you with the tools to fix them yourself, or you can opt to have them repaired in-house by our experienced and quality-focused restringing/repair service.
