Beads of Paradise

New York City, New York

Beads of Paradise

Beads Of Paradise began in the late 1980’s as a small store in the East Village. Originally specializing in African antiquities, textiles, beads and jewelry – but as interest in world art and beads grew throughout the 1990s, they underwent a major expansion and moved to our current location in the historic Flatiron district of New York City.

Their inventory includes wonderful goods from South East Asia, India, Indonesia, China, the Middle East, and now Mexico. Just a few examples include: sterling silver from Bali and Mexico; ancient glass beads from China; hand crafted silk products and bamboo lacquerware from Vietnam; gorgeous temple offering containers and guardian angels from Burma; Hindu religious artifacts and paintings from India; hand-carved wooden Buddhas and Buddhist amulets from Thailand; beautifully crafted nichos, cajas, and antique retablos from Mexico; and hand-woven natural textiles from all of the aforementioned countries. They proudly offer one of the most unique collections of semi-precious stone beads, sold both by the strand and individually.
