Beads & Supplies
The joy of beading is intimately bound up in the spirit of discovery, of finding unique beauty and value in natural and handmade objects. At The Riverwalk Bead Shop and Gallery, we have created a gathering place for beaders of every level of experience. We offer a selection of merchandise that cannot be found in traditional department stores or boutiques.
Situated within Amesbury's historic, Victorian-era downtown, The Riverwalk Bead Shop and Gallery offers beaders the region's most unique showcase of natural stone beads, finished jewelry and handmade New England folk craft.
Nancy Plante, founder and proprietor of The Riverwalk Bead Shop and Gallery, draws upon more than a decade of retail and customer service to create an environment that celebrates display, customer education and value. Nancy utilizes a worldwide network of sources to continously renew her store as a destination for those who seek the highest quality in natural stones, design and technique.
The store's location in an 1850s-era train depot provides the Riverwalk Bead Shop and Gallery with a setting that is unique in terms of size, airiness and vibe. Here you will find education, inspiration and creative support from people who share a passion for beading and other forms of handcraft art.
