Open the door to creative inspiration. Since 1984, owner Barry Olen has searched out sources from around the world to collect a vast selection of beads, cut stones, and jewelry making supplies, as well as Sterling wire and sheet, tumblers, flex shafts and jewelry tools. Barry has created a jewelry design center, offering classes, repair services, and endless creative possibilities. The gallery space in front features large specimens of stunning minerals and rocks, jewelry and select works by local artists, as well as Barry's own creations. The back room has been outfitted for lapidary and jewelry making services and workshops. Working with more than 100 vendors, the selection of materials, including stone, precious metals, wood, handmade Czech glass, Japanese glass, shell, clay, and seeds, is quite impressive. Beads and Beyond can provide a place for novice crafters, as well as experienced jewelry artists to explore and enjoy the art of making jewelry.
