I lived in Ellensburg for six years, and the Ellensburg Agate and bead shop was the only jewelry store I trusted to do work for me.

Steve Townsend the owner made many pieces of jewelry for me including. A 10 karat gold ring with an Oregon Sunstone and Natural Burmese ruby.

I would give Steve and Unetta Townsend 10 stars.

The reviewer who complained about the the Townsends not telling where to find blues. Well all of that area is private land so you have to know someone or trespas and hope you don't get caught.

The owner of this shop does great custom work! He can cast a setting in silver, gold, or other suitable metals by the lost wax process, using only a sketch of your idea. He cuts custom cabs, calibrated or freefrom, from material you select in the shop or bring in from your own collections. He has an extensive selection of blank mounts that you can select from, have him set with your calibrated cab, and make a one of a kind piece. Not many places do custom work any more, and even fewer of this quality.

Even if you're not in Ellensburg, if you have a special piece in mind that you want made, contact this shop and see what the owner can do.

I am a new rock hunter, just started this summer 2010. I was completely satisfied with the prices and the beautiful store, if you are not into stones and minerals, you could be with just a walk through. But my only disappointment was, that with the sizable purchase I made, they did not give me a clue where to find E-blues. They should at least say some thing like, " this sid of the moon." Lol. But the owner showed me some he had in his pocket, they are beautiful. Thank you Dee Dee

For one week during the summer of 2003 I stayed in Ellensburg with my older sister, who was at the time working at Ellensburg Agate and Bead. As a result, I got the opporunity to spend a bit of time there to see how things worked. The shop is definitely large enough to roam around and forget yourself in, stocked with stones and other beautiful rocks of all kinds, including the infamous Ellensburg Blue. Beads are in abundance here, with every shape, color, size, and texture. Contrary to the store's name, there is also jewelry and smaller trinkets made of wood, glass, and other materials to snag the eye and capture the senses.

The owners are serious about their work, and do it well. They are also fun, nice, and their demeanors are generally pretty jolly with customers. However, they are usually able to help you find what you need (unless you're asking for something highly unusual, of course), and leave you with a sense of satisfaction.

I'd recommend coming here if you want a friendly, relaxing shopping experience, or need help in finding crimps, stones, clasps, or whatever your jeweling heart desires. Enjoy!

I like this place for getting supplies. I used to collect rocks and I got many of them from here. The staff is helpful and the environment is fun. It's easy to find what you need here.
