Never too early or late to work on project from the heart.

Thanks to its slight curve, the Preciosa Bow (TM) bead can be combined with smaller beads, seed beads, fire polished and pressed glass beads.
It works wonderfully with the large Preciosa Candy(TM) bead.
Connecting two beads can result in a magic eye or an interesting X shape. There are thousands of design possibilities!
Preciosa Bow (TM) begins shipping in February!
ZOLIDUO is joining our bead collection. The ZOLIDUO Czech glass bead is a unique shape with two holes. The beads are manufactured as right/left options creating many opportunities for new designs.
The earrings and bracelet featured on the banner will be released as project PDFs in February!

We associate this quote with our cofounder and family matriarch Betsy John. Betsy continues to inspire us and this “ninety-something” lady influenced a very special portrait series this summer.
You are the first to see one of the special photographs we created featuring Betsy John and some of the amazing designer jewelry in our collection. We’ll be sharing many more next year.
2018 is going to be a very special year for us, Betsy and for our wonderful customers. We wish you a festive and happy holiday season and a truly Happy New Year.

and the entire John Bead Company
