Stop by Central Louisiana’s only bead store, A BEAD BOUTIQUE, 2924 Jackson Street in Alexandria, Louisiana. Located on the edge of the garden district, A BEAD BOUTIQUE offers a cottage-style setting with multiple rooms that are ideal for classes, parties, or a quiet beading get-away.

At A BEAD BOUTIQUE, you will find beads from around the world, including Austrian Swarovski crystals (new and vintage), Czech fire-polised glass, a large selection of fresh water pearls, lamp work beads, dichroic glass, vintage German glass, gem stones, sterling silver findings, plated metal findings in different finishes, stringing supplies, how-to books, and tools. If you are a bead weaver, we are expanding our selection of Myuki delicas, seed beads, and weaving supplies. A designer or knowledgeable staff is available to assist you with your selection or projects.

CLASSES are offered on an individual or group basis. Pre-registration is required.

PARTIES at A BEAD BOUTIQUE are fun! The multiple rooms allow parties in one area of the shop and instruction/classes to be held in a different area. We have hosted little girl parties, big girl parties, and group meetings (such as Red Hat Society, teacher sororities, birthday clubs). Calendar your event today by calling 318.442.2575.

WEDDING JEWELRY can be designed for any size wedding party. Bridal jewelry, bridesmaids, or mother-of-the-bride custom pieces require a down-payment at the time of order. At least one month notice is preferable to ensure best selection.
