a bit off the beadin' path but well worth the trip!


The bodacious beads store has closed.

Thank you very much for all your

patronage and support.


Since we closed March 23, we have been organizing our Swarovski® stock to correct our ETSY store merchandise: bodaciousbeadchicgo.


There are dozens of new listings and we have new quantity discounts.


20% off on the purchase of:


200 4mm bicones (5328/5300) or rounds (5000) of one color 


100 6mm bicones or rounds of one color


50 8mm bicones or rounds of one color


Contact us through ETSY or at for additional quantity discounts on any item of which we have a large number.

Our Etsy store has Swarovski® crystals and vintage Swarovski®.
