Since 1991, Caravan Beads has been supplying stores, artists and hobbyists with jewelry-making supplies. We specialize in Japanese seed beads and Delica beads made by Miyuki.

Open by Appointment only

Due to the pandemic, we are not able to offer the in-person instruction that we have in the past. We are working hard to reopen the store so you can shop again, as well as making new kits and take-home projects that you can work on while at home.

In the store:

You can walk around our retail store with a Virtual Tour from Google Maps. We have a large selection of Japanese seed beads, Miyuki Delica beads, Swarovski crystal, semi-precious strands, African and natural beads, clasps and findings, beading tools and all the things you need to make beaded jewelry.

Looking through our selection of books and magazines you can learn more about making jewelry, and be inspired by the latest ideas in beadwork. Select from our many sizes of silk and nylon thread, leather and satin cord, hundreds of styles of chain, flexible beading wire or artistic wire for wrapping and making links. You will also find a selection of tools, needles, storage containers and gift boxes to choose from.

If you have additional questions please call us at 207-761-2503 x1.
