A weekly spotlight on the fabulous Nottingham Independents, who make our City unique.

The Bead Shop

Located on Market Street, just off Nottingham’s Old Market Square, painted bright purple you’ll find this treasure trove which spans over two floors filled with beautiful beads and so much more!

About the shop

The Bead Shop specialises in unique beading, jewellery making and craft kits. As well as being a one stop shop for beads, jewellery and craft supplies, they host a wide range of workshops (virtually at the moment) and offer a fixing and stringing service for broken jewellery. One of The Bead Shop’s owners, Hana (you’ll spot her by her fabulous, brightly coloured hair) says she loves sharing her passion for creativity with others. Hana and the team love their job, especially when customers share their makes online with them.

Fun Fact:

The Bead Shop opened in 2000 and this week celebrate their 21st Birthday! Hana gets her hair coloured at another great Nottingham independent- Steele Hairdressing
