There are many of us who make up Bead Shop Girl. Our collective knowledge of beads and techniques is something to be proud of. When you visit our store we will make every attempt to share our knowledge and revel in the wonder of beads.
When you visit our store be sure to check out the baubles on Caitlin. Her vintage style and mix of unique materials is an inspiration to all. Caitlin joined our staff in 2013 bringing with her years of jewelry making know-how.
Known for her infections laugh and unstoppable smile, Heather is one of our senior staff members. She has been a part of the Baubles and Beads family since 2002! Ask Heather about anything at all and she will answer all your questions and brighten your day at the same time. Her favorite techniques include wire wrapping and pearl knotting, and you can usually see her wearing some of her own handmade jewelry using one of those two techniques. She first started making jewelry in 1st grade with her best friend but it became a career in 2002 when she was fresh out of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.
Have you ever had something repaired at Baubles & Beads? Chances are it was Jude who worked her magic to fix it! Having been here since 2006, there is no repair or problem too big for her to tackle. In her own time she makes beautiful, delicate and intricate jewelry, incorporating lots of stones and tiny wire wraps. Ask her for help with all that jewelry you’ve been meaning to fix for years and she won’t let you down.
Every time you order something on our web store it goes straight to the desk of Shannon. Shannon joined Baubles & Beads in 2010 and she knows the lay of the land here at the store. If you have any questions about ordering from us online, she’s your girl. Not able to make it into the store to ask your web related questions? That’s fine! Just give Shannon a call and she will make sure your order gets filled and shipped in lightning speed.
Amara has been with us for over 4 years. This girl knows her colors and is excellent at giving customers that little tip helps finish their designs. Although she loves picking up new jewelry making skills she enjoys soldering the most as it provides the most challenge for her.
Lisa has been a fixture at Baubles and Beads since 1997. While she used to be the manager of the Berkeley store, she took some time off to redirect her career toward teaching wire & design at many of the national bead shows. After her beader in training was born, she once again redirected her career back with baubles & Beads as our webmaster and social media director. Lisa continues to act as one of our regular instructors, teaching basic techniques as well as many of her original wire designs.
