Piece of Mind

Bead and Jewelry Studio


We love beads, and we know you do too!

Piece of Mind has an extensive selection of unique and unusual beads for the discriminating beaded jewelry maker. With over 25 years of experience in the bead world, Gretchen knows how difficult it can be to find materials that will make your jewelry stand out in a crowd. It is our goal to provide you with beads that will make the most interesting beaded jewelry, and will dazzle your customers.

Maybe you know a lot about beading, perhaps you only know a little bit, either way we have you covered.  With 7 different instructors, we are able to offer over 35 classes per quarter. With chainmaking, wirework, seed beading, as well as the basics, we cater to the beginning beader, advanced artist and everyone in between.  Looking for something new to try? You have come to the right place. Check out our class list online, or come by the shop to check everything out in person!  We’d love to see you!
