About Sam's Bead Shop:

Sam, the owner of Sam’s Bead Shop – a small online bead store, thinks of himself as a curator. He thoughtfully hand-picks specific, top-notch Czech glass and gemstone beads, and generates excitement about them by first introducing new beads, every Sunday, in the Sam’s Bead Shop Facebook Group. Sam also incorporates his bead picks into finished pieces, which may be replicated by members of the beading community, during fun, weekly Saturday beading classes. Make sure you sign up for his bi-weekly email newsletter to be notified of new products and classes.

My Thoughts on Sam's Bead Shop

I admit that I had not heard about Sam’s Bead Shop before Sam personally reached out to me. However, I am careful about taking businesses up on such offers to review products; you’d be surprised how many scammy business owners flood my inbox, but I digress…

Sam’s Bead Shop is different (that’s a good thing). In my opinion, what sets Sam’s shop apart is that he is not only selling his favorite, curated, high-quality beads, but he is also bringing together a community of beaders, who can appreciate the materials, and learn from and inspire each other. He also brings the sense of excitement and fun through his weekly bead reveals; a very clever way to generate buzz about the new picks, and appreciate a few great finds at a time.

Finally, from a customer’s perspective, I can confidently recommend this online bead shop. The packaging he uses is not only adorable on the outside, but very thorough on the inside. All items are clearly labeled, and the prices are fair. The website shop is clear, with detailed photos and descriptions, and is very easy to navigate. Last, but not least, it is evident that he aims to make customer service a priority.
