Welcome to Bella Beads

It's September and school's back in session. Now that the kids are out of the house, it's time to start thinking about gift ideas for the Holidays. (Did she say, "Holidays"?)

September Highlights

This month Bella Beads is happy to have several new classes available for you; Sylvia M is offering a new Russian Leaf Earring class, and I am offering a Crocheted Bracelet, as well as a Tubular Stitch Class, which is a continuation of the 'Flat Stitches for Beginners' series. This class can be taken on it's own.

Remember, if you see a class that you'd like to take, but the timing is all wrong, please let me know and we can try and work a better time slot for you.

Special Sales

This month's 40% off the Store Sale (except consignment) will be Wednesday, September 14th through Sunday September 18th.


I am looking to diversify my shop offerings, and I'd like to connect with an entrepreneur who has perhaps exceeded a home space, yet isn't quite ready to have their own 'brick and motar' shop front. They don't have to have anything to do with beads or jewelry, but must be a viable business. If you know of anyone who fits that description, please let me know.

So why not take a page out of the kid's book, and brush up on your beading/crafting skills by taking a class?!

Thank you all for 'beading' here, I would 'bead' nowhere without you!



Bella Beads is a full-service bead store located at 1154 W. Maple Ave, in the Long Meadow Commons shopping center in Mundelein, IL. The shopping center is on the corner of Route 176 and Midlothian, with the store just west of Dominicks.

We carry a large line of products including Swarovski crystals, Czech glass, lampwork, sterling silver, and base metal beads. We also offer a large selection of findings in silver and gold plate as well as sterling silver and gold-filled. Our line is completed with all of the stringing materials and tools you may need.

Bella Beads offers a variety of classes each month, from basic stringing to bead weaving, wire, PMC/ArtClay, and polymer clay. Check out our Classes page for descriptions and pictures.
