Owner description: We run our beautiful bead business from an old cottage on the outskirts of town, 2 minutes from the centre. You can't miss us - we have a colorful frontage, with large multi-colored beads hanging outside. Look for our OPEN flag and the often photographed Paua Koru on the wall out front! See you soon, for lots of fun, creativity and gifts!! Come and make your own personalized gift or simply find something beautiful that we have made.

“A must visit for crafters”
Reviewed 4 December 2012

A quirky little shop away from the main drag and souvenir shops with a great selection of beads and accessories. The decor outside announces that this shop is fun. The service was awesome too.

Hey there sarah... sorry I didn't reply sooner, but thank you for taking the time to comment! Would just like to add, that the Bead Shop Queenstown caters for all ages 4yrs to 104yrs!! You must have visited the shop either during the school holidays or at a time when there happened to be children there :) We welcome all ages to make and create their own style, with a little help from the staff if needed whenever they like. Hope to see you again soon... come and give it a go or join one of our Pizza and wine evenings, on the first friday of every month!! :D

I took Miss 6 here for an activity on her birthday while we were away. She had a great time making a bracelet with lots of beads to choose from at a low cost.

“Earrings plus”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

I love to get jewelry from the different vacation places we visit and I found great earrings at the Bead Shop. The choices for jewelry is unique and the prices are reasonable.

Thank you for taking the time to comment... how many people lose one of their favourite earrings.. so annoying :( We try hard to have a wide range of design and price, all handmade and unique so hopefully should suit everyones pocket!!
