Two years ago I purchased beads and a bracelet at Beadles. Attempted to purchase more bracelets elsewhere that were as comfortable without any luck. Headed back there this year! Very busy shop! Very helpful young ladies! Classes are also available!

A great place to express your creativity - I've been going there for years with designs for different beaded pieces in my head and these folks make them a reality. I get compliments galore on the finished pieces. The staff is very helpful and talented.

We had two necklaces made and the salesgirl was so distracted by the two boys that were stationed in the back of the store, she failed to see that one of the clasps was defective. I could have done it for less, and not had to wait for service while she flirted with the boys (clearly not her brothers), by... More

Beadles is a buy it made or make -it -yourself jewelry store on Dock Square,Downtown Rockport. Dazzling beads and bobbles that you use to create your own memory of your great day /week/month in Rockport. They even provide free workshops to help you select what suits you best. The Rockport Motif #1 bead is a great choice. Fun for everyone.

Beadle's offered a workshop on how to wrap pieces of sea glass in wire, to create pendants, earrings, etc. (The workshop differed from some online instruction in that the process began with the bale in the middle of the wrapping wire.) The instructor was friendly and knowledgeable, the selection of materials (for which one paid; workshop was free!) was good,... More
