Recently visited this wonderful bead store in Harvard Square and was really impressed with the staff's knowledge of beads and jewelry making. Great beads too!

Ever need to call them to ask for someone in there store? Don't they are rude and demeaning to you! If I owned that store I would have fired her in 2 seconds flat after hearing her.

Business Response:

Thanks for the Feedback We appreciate all feedback whether it is positive or negative. When we hear that our sales staff offer less than superior customer service we investigate the situations and deal with the staff person appropriately. Rudeness is never tolerated.

Good place to find a fantastic selection of beads. Everything laid out very well, color-cordinated with lots of examples to give the creative muse an extra push. Store is well lit and organized, everything you could possibly want or need is in one place. Staff is extremely helpful. I love to make my own jewelry, which allows me to coordinate the colors that make my mood and clothing perfectly.

I have a couple friends who are into beading. I'm not a beader, but I've shopped for their birthday presents here with great success. Beads are organized according to type and color, row after row, with the more unique beads set out in in bowls atop the rows. The first friend wanted bumpy beads, so that was fairly easy to accomplish. The second friend . . . well, I chose. I found for her some vintage Austrian beads that rather resemble Siamese cats eyes. Thrilled her to bits.

PROS: Vast selection.
CONS: Employees basically chatted with each other, offered no help.

Beadworks is a crafts store located in Cambridge's Harvard Square. It specializes in selling...you guessed it...beads. They have quite a selection of beautiful beads for you to purchase. They can also advise you and sell you tools and other supplies you might need to assemble your beads into jewelry or accessories.

Very fun, good place to make your mom a present for mother's day.

The selection of beads at beadworks is great, and although the prices are many times a little bit too steep, it's in a great location and the displays are well set-up.

The products are great, but this store will overwhelm you if you are new to beads. Be sure to take your time as they have a lot of stuff to go through. The store isn't large, but the set it up nicely. Even going in to browse through their displays is worth the trip. The store provides trays to gather the bead and all the necessary clasps. Make sure you do not bring any food or drink in (even bottled water) as they will ask you to leave. However, the staff is nice, especially if you need help coordinating beads.
