General Bead

Jewelry in Downtown, Civic Center & SoMa

Wild beading ambitions strike suddenly within these walls lined with bulk beads, inducing visions of DIY drag and handmade holiday gifts like sparkling mirages: multi-tiered necklaces, sequined samba costumes, mosaic frames, fringed lampshades that double as hats…To practice restraint, order smaller quantities downstairs from bead-bedecked staff behind the counter, who will ring up your sale on bejeweled calculators.
