Welcome to Elegant Notions


We are currently no longer in business and do not have any immediate plans for re-opening.

We thank you for your patronage and hope that you are able to meet your beading and jewelry making needs elsewhere.  When and if we do re-open, we will post details on this site as and when they become available.


Thank You


Bead & Jewelry Making Resources

We continue to expand the scope of our bead resources section

We have been adding more and more link to our new links page. We have had links submitted by a number of people for various resources including beading sites, discussion groups and message boards.  If you have a link you would like to share, please send it to us.

Work continue work on our project dedicated to promoting the extensive bead research done by the late Peter Francis Jr.  

We will be continually expanding this section in the coming months in an effort to turn it into a premiere source of information for beaders and jewelry makers.  In addition, if you have anything you would like to share or would be of interest to your fellow beaders, please drop us a line and tell us about it.

Bead Societies and Clubs

We are currently updating our database on bead societies and clubs.  Please take a moment to look at our listings and check to see if the information for your club or organization is correct and current.  Also, if you are in a bead group we have an offer for you that you can't refuse.  We are offering all beading organizations a free web page on this site to use as you wish.  You can use it to advertise your organization, announce upcoming events or classes or basically anything you want - as long as it is related to beads.  This is entirely free - all we ask is that you provide a link to our site from yours (if you have one, otherwise there is no requirement) which we assume you would want to do anyway so that your members can find your page.  If you are interested please let us know.  Finally, if your group has a regular printed newsletter and you accept paid advertisers, please contact us concerning advertising rates and deadlines.

Customer Feedback

We are still feeling our way through this, so your feed back will be greatly appreciated.  If there is anything you want that you can't find, something you would like to have added, a helpful suggestion, something not working right on the site or you just want to say 'Hello', please contact us
