Don't miss out on our quarterly sale that's coming up September 2-5. We'ved extended our sale to begin on Thursday in case you're venturing out during the Labor Day weekend. The sale will be 20% off beads (exclusions do apply.)

Also that weekend, we will be having Silk Road Treasures and their earthly, exotic beads and wares from Afghanistan. Always a treat, they bring all sorts of antiquities, textiles, and semi-precious gemstones. And if you're a fan of lapis, you're in luck because they have some of the highest quality and unique lapis pieces.

We now have 6 different varieties of these popular Christmas Tree earring sets. Yes, we're starting early due to last year's overwhelming demand.

Due to demand, the shop hop will run through two weekends, September 9-12 and also September 16-19. This means you'll have more time to visit the bead stores across the Southland, collect your free gifts at each store, be entered for drawings for prizes, and participate in any special events. Keep connected with us as we'll post further details on the fun you'll have at the San Gabriel Bead Company during these weekends!!!
