Beadology Iowa

“Beadology Iowa opened as Dawn’s Hide & Bead Away in 1987. In August of 2008, the store was sold to current owners Karen and Laurel Kubby. The store is full of beads from around the world: stone, pearl, metal, organic, glass, crystal, and one-of-a-kind flamework beads. We carry jewelry findings, tools, and beadwork supplies. Custom and repair work is a staff favorite. All finished jewelry is made in house. There is an extensive class list that includes wirework, stringing, knotting, flamework, precious metal clay, and seed bead weaving. We pride ourselves on creating a respectful, supportive, and nonjudgemental atmosphere in which jewelry designers–from beginners to professionals–can thrive. This is done in the spirit of collaboration and community building; offering support, instruction, stellar customer service, and a quality product line.” [More…]
