It is with great sadness that we closed the doors to The Beadnik's bead shop on August 16th.  The past 8 years having the bead shop in our lives has been incredibly special but it certainly has been a struggle for the past 3 when the economy turned.  

We have done our best to continue to serve the community of fantastic crafters and professionals in our area, but the cost of running the physical storefront had become too much to survive and our city's intensive construction season made it impossible for customers to visit this summer.  

We are still happy to order what is needed for customers, will continue to offer classes, workshops and birthday parties and will be operating The Beadnik's Metal Arts Studio full time.  With this in mind, custom jewellery and repairs will be attended to regularly and we will still offer beads by custom order.
If you need a product or service, simply give us a call at 452-0891 and we'll do our best to serve you!

Classes & Workshops!

Classes will continue once we have the shop packed up.  We are looking into community space to be able to offer a regular schedule, so check out our beading classes on the calendar and don't miss our metal working classes in the studio (on our regular calendar and its own website) - www.beadnikmetalarts.com for detailed descriptions.

What is The Beadnik?!

The Beadnik is an independent business created, owned and operated by Sarah Smith-Stewart. As an avid jewellery maker for over 14 years, her bead collection had grown incredibly! The Beadnik began selling beads, supplies and custom jewellery at local markets in New Brunswick, Canada and as word spread, a need to supply out of province (and out of country) beaders increased until The Beadnik’s Online Store was born! In 2006, The Beadnik opened as a brick-and-mortar store in Fredericton, New Brunswick and settled at 187 Main St in 2008. The physical storefront is so busy that the online store had to be put on hold, but we are happy to send out items as people need them, so don’t hesitate to e-mail and let us know what you need!
