Thanks for visiting!

We are developing a site for Pittsburgh Beaders, drawing on the resources of our shop, and our other websites. We have a large and growing number of websites, and a rich history on the Internet.

Your source for BEADS in Pittsburgh!

Our retail shop opened April 1st, 2002, although we have been at our location for 10 years. You can browse, get help, have jewelry restrung or repaired, or turn old broken pieces into new creations!

We are a rock and bead shop, with a very large and varied inventory! We have many hard to find items, rare stones and vintage beads. We also have a large selection of Origami papers and collectible Sci Fi Vehicle kits.

You can take a tour at our Better Beading site.
You can chat with us in our Bead Banter forum
You can visit our main site, at Pugdog.com

The Bead Exchange: Does the size of your bead stash keep you from buying new beads? Do you dread opening your beading cases because all you see are the same old beads? Well, we have the solution. Exchange your tired, old, unloved beads, for fresh, new exciting beads, and rekindle your love of beading!

Find Out More!!

The Bead Exchange for local Pittsburgh area bead workers to change their old beads in for fresh new beads is available in our shop, but may soon be available on-line! For now, you can find out more on our main site, at one of the links above, or in our shop:
