How Buy The Bead was born

Cartoon lady wearing beaded necklaces - Billings, MT - Buy The Bead
Buy the Bead began in 2003 when Brenda Willette, who had been beading for several years, became frustrated with the quality and selection of beads she found in her local area. Even when she searched online, the beautiful beads pictured on the websites turned out to be much less attractive when they arrived in the mail. In addition, the online beads added costs for shipping that added a significant amount to the price. Brenda and her husband, Jon, decided to create their own bead store, offering a large selection of high-quality beads that Brenda had struggled to find on her own.

What we have to offer

Today, Buy the Bead offers a great selection of quality jewelry-making supplies. Our inventory consists of top-of-the-line beads and customer service representatives who understand the beading world. Every tool, stone, pearl, glass bead and crystal is hand-selected by Brenda. Because she has significant beading experience, you know that the products offered at Buy the Bead are of high quality.

In addition to beads and tools, Buy the Bead also offers classes, jewelry repair, beading contests, birthday parties, classroom activities and private events. You can try out any tool sold in the store before you purchase it to be sure it meets your needs or just work on a project of yours at the store.

Buy the Bead is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and on Sunday from noon until 4 p.m. We are located at 670 King Park Drive, Suite 7, in Billings, Montana, at the cross streets of Rosebud and King Park Drive.
