FAQ

Frequently asked questions.

General

What sort of services did the Bead Gallery offer?

We offered a variety of services including:

  • Jewelry restringing, metal-smithing, and other repairs
  • Custom jewelry design including wedding jewelry
  • Beading classes
  • Private classes and bead parties

These services are still available through Becky’s new Jewelry Studio, downstairs at 309 E. Liberty.

Where is the Bead Gallery located?

The Bead Gallery was located in downtown Ann Arbor, Michigan, on the main level of the gray house at 311 E. Liberty. We have now moved online, so you can shop our merchandise from the comfort of your own home. Find us on etsy. For more info, please see our store location page.

What will be taking over the Bead Gallery's old location?

The Bead Gallery used to be at 309 E. Liberty, in the basement of the same building. Now, one of our managers, Becky, is opening her own Jewwelry Design Studio and Creative Space in the first week of August in this location. We are unsure of what will be taking over the main level of the building, but we are excited to see what the future holds.

Are there any other stores affiliated with The Bead Gallery?

The Bead Gallery was also associated with Adorn Me, a women’s accessories boutique. Located inside the Bead Gallery, Adorn Me featured an eclectic collection of shoes, handbags, and scarves, as well as hand-crafted beaded jewelry created by the Bead Gallery staff. To continue purchasing jewelry made by our staff, follow Becky, Jes, and Courtney as they continue to grow their jewelry business!

I the Bead Gallery open?

The Bead Gallery officially closed it’s doors on June 23rd, 2018.

I've never made jewelry or shopped for beads before. Will I be able to make jewelry at Becky's new studio?

How do I sign up for classes?

Custom Orders and Repairs

Where can I get my jewelry repaired now that you do not have a physical location?

One of our managers, Becky, is opening her own Jewelry Studio, downstairs at 309 E. Liberty (the old bead gallery location). She worked on most of our jewelry repairs in the last five years we were open, so you may be familiar with her work. She is continuing to offer jewelry repair and custom design work at reasonable prices. Give her a call at 734.663.6800 for more information
