About Us
Western Australia's "premier bead store" is leading the way for all beading & craft enthusiasts statewide and across the country.
 
Introduction
The Bead Company began business in 1981.
 
Initially the business was run from home. After some time and subsequent growth in business, a shop located in Victoria Park was established. In 1997, the shop was relocated to Belmont and then Osborne Park. Selling a variety of goods, aimed at both the bridal and craft markets, the business enjoyed acclaim as the place to come to get all things associated with fashion, costume and design. In 2002, jewellery making started to become more accessible and popular. As craftspeople discovered how inexpensive and how much fun beading could be, this changed the focus of the business.  In July 2002, the owners sold the business after 21 years.  
 
As of July 2020, we are now an ONLINE STORE Only offering massive discounts across our full range.
 
A New Direction
The present owners, Megan Wride and Michael Podgorny, have increased the variety of products in the store and also introduce many more people to the love of beading.
 
Attention is focused on customers being friends of the business, providing an ever-increasing variety and high level of stock and improving the look and merchandising in store. This coupled with increased classes using the business's vast range of products, has led to The Bead Company becoming a highly enjoyable and popular place to be for all ages.
 
Due to changing market and circumstance, The Bead Company has now moved to a 100% online presence with a website for customers to peruse our products, register and place orders.
 
More than Retail
The Bead Company also has a wide selection of business customers. This business operates side by side with the retail operation. Although unusual from a modern day management viewpoint, the craft industry is not highly organised or structured, and therefore the two types of customers are provided both with equal and quality consideration.
 
There are many people who sell beads, both on the Internet and in stores Australia wide. The Bead Company attracts large numbers of people, who love the wide choices that in-store shopping provides. With an enormous range, a bright and well-designed store, happy and helpful staff, The Bead Company is a comfortable shopping experience.
 
The Bead Company stocks the largest selection of beads and accessories in Western Australia. 
 
Product Range
The Bead Company carries a huge selection of seed beads, crystals, semi-precious and other beads. The Bead Company stocks a variety of accessories, wires, glues, tools, jigs and looms, jewellery findings, tiger tail, books, patterns, kits, etc.
 
Popular lines include wood, porcelain beads, chain, craft beads, Czech glass, diamantes, fresh water pearls, hematite, magnetic, Indian glass, African ceramic beads, leather, cord, pewter and tiny trinkets, semi-precious, sequins, threads and Preciosa crystals. The world of beads and beading is pretty much covered at The Bead Company.
