We are a Full Service Bead Store and Artisan Gallery nestled in a warm country setting.   
We strive to bring you high-end and unusual findings for all of your creative jewelry making needs.  We specialize in hand lampworked beads, focal pieces by local artists; as well as bring you a beautiful array of Japanese Toho & Miyuki seed beads, Sterling Silver findings including Saki, Bali, Swarovski, Czech & Chinese crystals, Semi-precious stone beads, Freshwater Pearls, and a whole garden of exciting glass beads just waiting to be picked.  We also sell most every tool and accessory you might need for your own bead box or special project.

Jewelry Making Classes
Our jewelry making Classes are friendly and fun!  We focus on everything from basic to advanced jewelry making techniques in most every medium. We'll keep you on the cutting edge of design and product because our instructors are not simple store clerks, but true artisans proficient in their craft. Check out our class descriptions and then the class calendar for dates and more information.  Classes are popular - so hurry and reserve your seat today! Sign up for The Buttercup Newsletter for lots of great info.


Artisan Gallery
Our Artisan Gallery will inspire and excite you to produce your own unique pieces utilizing almost every material out there. Artisan pieces are also available for purchase for gifts for any occasion. Can't decide?  Not a problem - Gift Certificates are also available for your convenience.


Adult & Children Bead Parties
Our Buttercup Children Parties will keep the mess out of your home, while still providing a great learning experience in a safe, fun, and friendly environment. A perfect outing for Birthdays, Brownies, Girl Scouts, Sport and Dance teams. We love hosting (big) Girl's Night Out, Red Hatters, and Bridal Parties for any special occasion or for nothing at all.  (It's a social thing, doncha know.)


Open Workshop Studio - No experience necessary!
Where there are no classes or parties scheduled - we are an open workshop environment. ~ Buttercup Beads encourages you to bring in your current project, or start a new one and sit and bead with us in our cozy cottage setting.  If you've never beaded before you just come in, pick out a few beads and "Make and Take" your very own creation - no experience necessary - we'll do the finishing for you!  We play nice too. We'll share our tools, as well as our expertise.  We work closely with Bead Societies and Guilds to host special beading events, bead soirees, and unique workshops. Please come in to discover all of the many other services we have to offer!


 We're cozy.
  We're the best girly store in town! We are a slipper friendly, chocolate eating, coffee drinking bunch. Robes however, are entirely optional but must be worn with large dangly crystal earrings...(We do have our standards doncha know.)  Our prices are completely competitive and our service comes with a smile. Most of all - we're here to help you have fun!
