About Us

Bead Therapy is committed to innovation and hands-on teaching when it comes to creating one-of-a-kind jewelry for the Chattanooga community. Susan, the owner of this local bead shop, has been beading for the past 21 years, creating a myriad of stitches to add to her repertoire. Susan received high praise from the bead stitching community and was featured in the 2014 issue of Bead Work magazine, as well as the books 2015 Favorite Bead Stitches and 50 Beaded Bracelets. She was scheduled to teach 2 classes in 2020 at the Milwaukee Bead and Button show until COVID happened. Unfortunately, Bead and Button did not survive the COVID crisis and there will no longer be a fabulous bead event in early June.

Our staff at bead-Therapy have YEARS of beading experience and are able to answer most all of your beading questions and make recommendations for solutions/new projects, suitable classes, etc. I don't hire know nothing minimum wage snot-nosed teenagers to work at the shop (unless they are really good beaders....and if I do, I make them wipe their noses.....). Come by and give us a try.

We are happy to be your beading spot in the Chattanooga area. This vibrant city is full of talented individuals which is why we are excited to offer jewelry making, beading supplies, and an array of helpful classes to aid in your creative journey. New to the idea of beading? It really is a great way to unwind and explore your creative side. Whether you are brand new to the art, or you have been practicing for years, we have something for you in our shop. Come stop by, take a look at our selections, sign up for a class, or ask us any questions you may have. We look forward to meeting you and helping you create some stunning art.

Have a teacher that you would love to have come visit (understanding that the big-name teachers usually take a year or two to schedule), please let us know.
