Welcome to Crystal Bead Bazaar


'It's all about the beads!'


Crystal Bead Bazaar is your one stop shop in Pittsburgh for beads.   We are full service, with the accent on 'service'.  


I opened in June of 2003 as a result of being frustrated by not being able to find the specific beads I needed without having to resort to on line ordering.   Some things one just needs to see in person!!   I knew that there must be others who felt that way, too.


Now I have the pleasure of traveling and buying beads for my customers.   My aim is to provide a friendly, comfortable atmosphere for all, no matter what skill level, to share in the camaraderie of beading.  I offer beading classes to all skill levels, so whether you have never strung a bead in your life, or are looking to make something more intricate than you usually do, you are coming to the right place


We offer a wide selection of everything you need for creating beautiful beaded jewelry, and some things that you didn't even know that you needed!   Crystal Bead Bazaar offers the Tri-State Area's best selection of high quality Miyuki seed beads and Swarovski Elements.  


Stop by and see what we have to offer.   I promise that you will not be disappointed!
