Beadles Beads & Jewellery
(1606 7th St SW) is the avenue’s littlest treasure chest, filled with the most colourful treasures. Since 1990, owner Sienna fills her shop wall-to-wall and shelf-to-shelf with beads from all over the world. Her collection includes semi-precious stones, wooden beads, Swarovski crystals, Italian murano glass, pedants and charms. Beadles is a little DIY haven with everything you need to make your own jewellery, including chains, wire, leather, braid cords, hemp string and clasps.

Broken chains or fashion jewellery in need of a mend will also find a home here – Sienna does in house repairs and will have you out the door again in one shiny piece.
