Big Changes at Beadaholique

Big Changes at Beadaholique

Our recent announcement about closing our store resulted in an outpouring of support from our customers and suppliers. Hearing how important Beadaholique is to you and the beading community lifted our spirits during this difficult time. We are so grateful to you.

Within days of closing, our founders Chris and Sarah found a buyer that was committed to keeping Beadaholique open and continuing our mission of being the world's most fun and engaging online resource for beading and jewelry supplies.

The new owners have many friends in the jewelry supply industry that will help us restock quickly and expand our selection. They also have wonderful partners with a high-tech warehouse and an order fulfillment team that specializes in jewelry supplies. Our store will soon provide everything you could want to make jewelry and your orders will ship even faster. We couldn't be more excited!

Of course, change is never easy, but progress is being made daily. Our new team includes some who have served you for over 10 years along with many new faces. We graciously ask for your patience in the coming weeks as we all work around the clock to rebuild Beadaholique.

We are thrilled that we will soon be able to provide you with even more options for your projects including new brands, new styles, and line expansions featuring more shapes, sizes, and colors than you can imagine. We will also continue supporting the beading community with our library of project tutorials, how-to videos, and 101 guides. In addition, your customer account, order history, wishlists, Beader's Rewards, and unused gift cards are here to stay.

If you have more questions, please see our updated FAQ page or contact our customer service team. We would also love to hear from you about what you have enjoyed most about Beadaholique and what new products or features you would like to see as we enter the next chapter. Please let us know in the comments below and thank you so much for sticking with us!

YES! I can quit looking for a new online source. YES! You all have kept me entertained through the pandemic. YES! I am a textile artist and embellisher … I need and love your extensive selection with straightforward, clear photos. YES!

Thrilled that you’ll be remaining open!

I am so glad to hear that you are able to remain open. I have really enjoyed that you have kits available and am excited when they are made using techniques that are new to me. I’ve learned a lot by doing that AND by watching the tutorials you have online. I’d like to see more kits, (and tutorials) using even more advanced techniques!

You guys taught me how to bead, and helped me re-discover a love of beading after I gave up clay/wire and donated all my supplies. These days I do mostly seed beads and brick stitch/peyote.

Your videos make me feel like I can do it too (and I have!). I’m a teacher myself, so I know how to teach so people can understand.

I’m really glad everything is staying!

I’d like to see more videos and keep going with the kits and videos because I have learned so much from them.

Woohoo! Great news! Can’t wait to see what’s coming!

Dianne - March 15, 2022

Yay! Great news! So happy for all of you (and for us too!).

Rose - March 15, 2022

Yay!!!!!! I really love your designers’ tutorials/videos and creative ideas on how to make jewelry and create projects with your beads and instruments. I like that you had developed your own brand of products. I was sad to see Swarovski leave hobbyists, but glad Preciosa stayed in the game, and I hope you find additional suppliers for crystals and pearls. Great news you are staying open! I love the Beader’s Rewards and frequent discount sales too.

This is great news! I hope to see more live classes!

Miladyblue - March 15, 2022

Phew!! Thank goodness for staying open! I hope everything works out for you.
