BEADS AND BEYOND is a full service bead store offering an extensive selection of beads and buttons. Established in 1994 as BEADS AND BEYOND by Kathy and Peter Dannerbeck, it grew out of Kathy Dannerbeck's interest and passion for beads. Kathy had previously owned a studio for 4 years selling and teaching beading.
With a selection of over 15,000 buttons and supplies, BEADS AND BEYOND employs a very knowledgeable and qualified staff to assist customers with projects and purchases. We offer a full range of beading classes for beaders of all levels in addition to PMC and wire working classes. Our excellent local instructors are continually designing new projects and we bring in a nationally known guest instructor once a month.
In addition to our extensive selection of beads we have designed glass buttons in the Czech Republic that we wholesale to bead, fabric and fiber stores. BEADS AND BEYOND has led 12 groups on bead and glass related tours. The tours have covered Eastern Europe focusing on the Czech Republic and Italy and to Kenya and Tanzania where we have worked with non-tourist villages helping to initiate a program to make Maasai women self-supporting with their beadwork.
