About Us

Earthly Adornments specializes in vintage and collectible beads and jewelry that generally cannot be found at other bead or jewelry sites. We are of particular interest to jewelry and costume designers, bead artists, costumers and jewelry makers.  We have three on-line stores (sorry no brick and mortar store but check our EVENTS page to see when we’ll be at a local fair in the San Francisco Bay Area). Our on-line stores are at www.earthlyadornments.com and https://www.etsy.com/shop/EarthlyAdornments2 and https://www.etsy.com/shop/EarthlyAdornments3


We buy old beads forgotten in warehouses, to estate collections of beads and jewelry grandma bought and left behind, to private collections  from China, Europe, Middle East  and Africa. This means you can get vintage styles and very unusual items, many of which are no longer in production. We have vintage passamenteries, and accessories (purses, hairpins, dresser sets, buttons and carvings). If you are looking for a particular item, please call us as not all of our inventory is online. Beads are measured in millimeters from hole to hole. We have a link at the bottom of each page for metric conversion and jewelry-making resources. Please note, as much of our stock is limited and vintage, please order what you need all at one time, as we frequently sell out and items are gone and cannot be replaced. Some findings and stampings are contemporary and can be reordered. We offer wholesale pricing to resellers. We appreciate customer input: please let us know what you think about our products, customer service and website. Read our great reviews! Thank you for doing business with Earthly Adornments.
