Established in 2004 The Bead Trail is a family run business that specialises in beads and findings for beadweaving and jewellery making.

Passionate about beads we stock a wide range of quality products including Czech glass, Czech spikes, Superduos, Swarovski Crystal and Japanese seed beads from both Miyuki and Toho. Included in our vast selection are cylinder beads, delicas and Aikos, Japanese and Czech Charlottes, seed beads from size 15 to size 6, cubes, drops, magatamas, tilas, Czech facetted glass, threads and components. New products are being added daily.

We are based in the UK, please note that we have recently closed our retail premise at Blakemere Craft Centre in order to focus on our on-line business. We will be running classes throughout the year, details are available under the workshop heading. If you need any advice or help with your purchases please do not hesitate to contact me, as always I will do my best to assist you.

Happy shopping and happy beading!
