Thanks for visiting!

We are developing a site for Pittsburgh Beaders, drawing on the resources of our shop, and our other websites. We have a large and growing number of websites, and a rich history on the Internet.

Glass Beads: We have a large and growing selection of glass beads, both commercially produced, and hand made by local and national artists. Lampworked and pressed glass, as well as vintage and crackled glass.

Our retail shop opened April 1st, 2002, although we have been at our location for 10 years. You can browse, get help, have jewelry restrung or repaired, or turn old broken pieces into new creations!

We are a rock and bead shop, with a very large and varied inventory! We have many hard to find items, rare stones and vintage beads. We also have a large selection of Origami papers and collectible Sci Fi Vehicle kits.

You can take a tour at our Better Beading site.
You can chat with us in our Bead Banter forum
You can visit our main site, at Pugdog.com
We have a Pittsburgh Bead Exchange for local bead workers to change their old beads in for fresh new beads! The site is under development, but for now, you can find out more on our main site or in our shop:

One of our other main offerings is a Dollhouse Workshop & Hospital, where we can fix up, renovate, or even build to order your dollhouses.
