Moonstone Beads shows us how to make your own jewelry

If you've ever wanted custom accessories, you'll want to see this!

Moonstone Beads in Surfside Beach offers more beads than you could ever dream of.  We were taken back with the selection, but had no idea how to make those beads into something beautiful.

That’s where Shirley Moore comes in.  Moonstone Beads offers free classes and Shirley is one of the instructors.  We were beyond excited to sit down with her and see if we had what it takes to make our own bracelet.   Not only did our creation turn out lovely, but we learned that beading is a surprisingly relaxing hobby.  The shop will also cater to your group and even hosts birthday parties.  Just in time for the Holidays, you’ll be able to take an ornament making class.  What could be more convenient?  Just pick the perfect color beads and get to it.

Store owner Tina tells us that people come from all over to enjoy the wide selection of beads that are available.  She also says that it’s great for any age.  From young children to Grandparents.

Each Wednesday the shop offers “Beading Therapy Day“.  This gives folks the opportunity to bring whatever project that is on their beading board.  “Beading Buddies” enjoy creating together, sharing laughter, and checking out all the new beads that have come in.

You can sign up for free classes by calling the store or visiting.  (843) 839 – 3535
