Welcome to Australia Beads, your go-to source for high-quality beads, beading supplies and all types of jewellery making findings & supplies.
What started as a hobby quickly turned into a full-blown obsession, and we began to explore the vast and wonderful world of beads. Spening countless hours researching, experimenting, and perfecting the craft, always striving to create unique and beautiful pieces that reflected own style and personality.
As our collection of beads and supplies grew, so did our desire to share this passion with others. From teaching beading classes at local community centers in Melbourne, soon we found that our inspiring and empowering love should be shared with others to express our creativity through jewelry-making.
That’s when we decided to start own online bead store. The founder Shama Rashid wanted to create a place where beaders of all levels could find high-quality beads, tools, and supplies at affordable prices, as well as a community where they could connect, learn, and share their love for beading.
We are a relic from the past century and our passion for beads and jewelry-making began over 25 years ago, when we started at Ebay and started our website in 1998 – Our first store was Melworks Beads ( still operating for over quarter of a century), founded in Melbourne, VIC. thus making us if not the oldest then one of the oldest online bead store in Australia. Melworks beads gave way to our current store – Australia Online Beads. This was more of a branding exercise and a vision to represent all of Australia.
Today, Australia Beads is a thriving online store that offers a wide selection of beads, including seed beads, gemstones, crystals, and more, as well as beading tools, findings, and accessories. We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best possible shopping experience, from fast and affordable shipping to friendly and knowledgeable customer service.
Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced beader, we’re here to help you unleash your creativity and express your unique style through beading. Thank you for choosing Australia Beads, and happy beading!
