Express Yourself with Alphabet Beads

Alphabet beads are so popular because they give us the freedom to express ourselve and share our thoughts.

Teach - spell a saying or phrase that represents an important lesson such as "SHARE".

Inspire - create bracelets that spell "LOVE" or  "HOPE" and give them as gifts or use them as fundraising items. These will surely bring a warmth and positivity to those who wear them. Our stylish example says "BELIEVE IN YOURSELF".

We love to plan fun and rewarding bead activities, so please do not hesitate to give us a call for help and advice.

Phone Number Bracelets

If you have young children who are still learning their home number or parents' cell phone number, creating phone number bracelets can be a great tool and fun to wear.

I am not sure which parent invented this idea, but they are helpful in keeping phone number literally close at hand until your child memorizes it.

Our design features 6mm number beads, mini pony beads and 2mm elastic cord. We chose the thick elastic cord for durability, and the cube shape of the number beads have large enough holes as do the pony beads to accommodate the thicker cord.

More than numbers...don't stop here, you can use number beads to celebrate important dates or alphabet beads for your group motto, girl's names or special sayings.
