About US 

It's just that it's handmade, which means quality and a whole lot of love!

All jewelry is handcrafted by Ann & Anita Tristan using high quality materials.  Our jewelry is made for women and men of all different styles.  

Bonita Bead Boutique was founded in 2005 by Ann & Anita Tristan twin-sisters.  After several years of working under consignment at the Toledo Museum of Art,  the Tristans set out on their own, selling their jewelry at specialty stores at one-stop trunk show. Now, as business owners, they plan to host trunk shows at Bonita Bead Boutique, giving local artists and beaders the opportunity to showcase their work.

Of course, the Tristans' own work will be displayed regularly in their boutique.  They also restore and repair old pieces of jewelry, and take special orders for proms, weddings or other special occasions.  

It is a full service bead shop that offers unmatched, extensive selection of: vintage beads/treasures, gemstones 8"-16" strands, Czech glass, trade beads, findings, tools, stringing materials-cords, leather, chain along with loose beads, ready-made jewelry and accessories. 

Whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or expert crafter, BBB is an invaluable resource.  We can teach you basics of stringing, knotting, and wire work techniques.
