Beads for Benefits is a creative space where you can comfortably shop for a unique, one of a kind, hand-crafted glass gift or create your own.  We artistically incorporate hand-made glass beads into every day items and as artwork for the inside and outside of your home.  

Hours:  Please call ahead to schedule an appointment to browse.  After hours appointments are  available as well.  Reservations for workshops and special events must be made in advance.

Workshops:  The warehouse can be reserved for beading workshops or for other artisan activities including an introduction to artistic welding.  Advance notice is required.

Events:  Book the warehouse for a special event like a birthday party, bridal shower, girl's night out, or for Mother's Day.  Beads for Benefits can also come to your event and provide the beads and materials to make decorations for your wedding or special occasion.  

Pairing:  A wine tasting, paired with a cheese plate, can be scheduled to occur during your event or after a workshop.  

Delivery:  We can also bring beads to your hotel for a family-oriented art and craft opportunity.  Activities can be geared for children or as a creative outlet for adults.

ADA Accessible:  Yes.

Pet Friendly:  By all means, bring your pets along with you.  There is a large, fully fenced yard adjacent to the warehouse.

Come to Beads for Benefits and create a life-long memory made of glass or select from one of our many unique gift items.

Full Explanation


I.  Tree Jewelry:  these hand-made glass beads can be used indoors, hung in windows, or displayed  outdoors.  Hang them from eves, trees, or shepard's hooks.  Endings are interchangeable including:  hand-blown hummingbird and bird feeders, glass prisms, sea shells, fossils, candle holders, vases, or hand-blown decorative colored glass ornaments.

The brilliant glass beads are sure to attract hummingbirds and butterflies to your outdoor living space.
Each strand is unique, like a fingerprint, and is made locally.  

Tree jewelry adds an artistic element to any special occasion like a wedding, birthday party, Bar Mitzvahs, or Quinceaneras.  Take them home, or give them as memorable gifts to attendees, or rent the available inventory, including our signature wedding white collection (available for purchase).

II.  Pet Collars:  the same glass beads are used to make dog collars and break-away cat collars.  While these collars may look pretty, they are chew-proof, dishwasher-safe, and veterinarian approved. Big dogs can safely wear large beaded collars, and small dog and cat collars use very small glass beads.

Wedding pet collars and accessories are also available.

Dog collars can double as a pet memorial.  Open the collar and hang it from a tree or a shepard's hook in your pet's final resting place, where you can always remember your best friend with a beautiful, and timeless piece of art.

III.  Human Jewelry:  Create jewelry for yourself and if you so desire, a matching dog or cat collar for your furry family friend.

Custom orders welcome.  Examples include:  belts, head boards, refurbished chandeliers, beaded curtains, tree macrame, wind chimes, rain-chain down spouts, and pet memorials.  If you can think of it, chances are we can festoon it with beads.
