The Bead Cottage of Virginia Beach is, quite literally, a beader’s paradise. Owner Carol Willoughby’s enthusiasm for her work and for beading is infectious. Who could not walk through her store and be amazed with the large selection of beads and accessories available?
Glass beads, gold-filled beads, seed beads, cloisonne and crystals…whatever you have in mind to create a necklace and matching earrings, or something equally stylish, is right there, and Carol and company are always willing to help. The Bead Cottage website is designed with their enthusiasm in mind; a whimsical yet practical design allows any bead hobbyist or professional to find the necessary supplies for a beadwork project. Best of all, the site is open when the store isn’t, so you can always check on upcoming beading classes and current inventory, then order online if you are unable to visit the store.
