I went in to organise so new catches for my necklaces, service helpful, didn't take long to do, quote given for the work, cost good, and good job done. So many interesting beads to choose from, worth having a look if you are into crafts at all. Pop in.

Fantastic shop with an amazing range of not only beads but beautiful jewelry. Definitely worth a visit. Staff are friendly and extremely helpful. Not pushy which is great.

I visited in January being lured in by all things shiney and I love beads etc. I went in and went into the part of the store that has glass cabinets full of delights. However, from the moment I went to look in the first cabinet I had a lady follow me around and this made me very very uncomfortable... More

2 years on I made a point of finding my way through the ruins and rebuild to visit this store. Both ladies were extremely helpful and were able to match the beads that I required. These ladies are the epitome of customer service. Congratulations

Lured into the shop by the interesting display of jewellery, the helpful proprietor was able to find what I was looking for (lapis-lazulli drop earrings) and then modified the earrings while I waited....result: one very happy customer! This lovely little shop is handy to the city centre for visiting tourists on foot.

I recently attended this wonderful shop and the young lady there was so helpful. I am an sbsolute novice at bead making and their selection of canister pre-selected beads were amazing. the assistant there was extremely helpful and even took the time to show me how to crimp the end of the cord. Totally recommended.

I was browsing through the lovely Regent street shops and came upon Rowena's wonderful jewellery shop. I couldn't resist splashing out on a wonderful necklace she had made.
