Welcome to our new website!

Since establishing The Bead Chest over a decade ago, our mission has always been to provide creative designers with unique beading supplies, while supporting developing communities at the same time. Since then we have become one of the leading ethnic bead suppliers on the web, working with jewelry designers, bead shops, and resellers around the world.

Today, we take a huge step forward as we launch our newest and most advanced website yet. In designing the site, we took your feedback into account to develop one of the most advanced craft shopping experiences on the web.

The new website is clean, user-friendly, and offers some awesome new features for a more enjoyable shopping experience:

  • 100% responsive design means you can now shop on your home computer, tablet, and mobile phone with seamless checkout
  • Quick View and Quick Add to Cart features allow you to browse product collections, and add items to your cart without having to reload the page
  • Advanced filtering on each product category to find what you want faster
  • An entirely revamped discovery tool to help you explore our enormous selection of over one million beads
  • Ability to create multiple wishlists, and share them with colleagues and friends
  • And so much more!

With this new website, we hope we can offer you with a more seamless and enjoyable shopping experience. We always appreciate your feedback as we consider this website  a work in progress, and will be coordinating closely with our in-house tech team to make constant improvements and modifications for your pleasure!

Please note - while we did everything possible to make this the best experience for the customers we love, we were unable to transfer over customer logins from the old website. The reason for this is that your login information is always 100% encrypted and secure, and we were therefore unable to access this data to copy it over to the new site.

Because of this, you will need to create a new account. Please rest assured, we were able to copy over all historical order data. Therefore, once you make your new account, you will be prompted to verify your email, at which point all your old orders will be reclaimed.

Should you have any questions, feedback, or require technical assistance, feel free to send us a message via Live Chat, or call us at 1-877-655-BEAD (1-877-655-2323).
