When Mari Eriksson opened the Fusion Beads retail store in 1997, it was her dream come true – an expression of her lifelong passion for beads. By offering engaging classes, an exciting selection of products and a visually inspiring retail environment, the Seattle store became central to the beading community. Seven years later, in 2004, she brought Fusion Beads online to build a global beading community for sharing creativity, expertise and tips on beads and beading. Their mission is to bring you a well-organized and easy-to-use site filled with information, inspiration and high-quality, fairly priced products – in other words, the best bead shopping site ever! They want to share their love for beading and help you discover the joy of creating handmade jewelry. Shop by collections including Swarovski Crystal, Preciosa Crystal, glass beads, handmade glass beads, metal beads, gemstone beads, natural beads and charms, artist beads and charms, mixed media, buttons and more beads, charms and pendants and more. You can find the most eclectic mix of patterns including alphabet, animal, awareness, donut, filigree, heart, holiday, shell, wood and more. In addition to the beads themselves, Fusion Beads all the resources, tools and accessories you'll need to create your own jewelry - find threads, chains, wire, tools, supplies and even some inspiration and techniques.
