About The Bead Lady TM

Congratulaions on your engagement! 

Allow me to tell you a little about myself, my team and how we can help make your special day even more special!

My name is Kathleen Reeder and I am "The Bead Lady".  My husband and I founded The Bead Lady TM in November of 2002.  Our 3,100 square foot bead showroom and custom design studio is located in the heart of downtown Concord in North Carolina.  Our showroom houses beads from all over the world.  Due to our vast bead selection and customer service our shop has become a destination spot for our clients from all over the nation.  Many of our clients are beaders and come to us for supplies and inspiration.  Others like to come and add one of our unique and one-of-a-kind pieces to their jewelry wardrobe.

What's unique about our business is our selection is so large and diverse that we are able to create just about anything you can imagine. Jewelry, headpieces, garters, bridesmaids jewelry..we do it all!

 AFTER the big day, what do I do with my flowers?:

You have all these fabulous flowers but what should you do with them?  We can help!  We have a process that not only will preserve your flowers but you can actually WEAR them!  There's about 12 steps that go into making each flower bead.  I hand roll them in the palm of my hand.  Much love and prayers going into these special beads.  Once the beads are made we then turn them into a piece of jewelry of your choice!  (Earrings, bracelet, a keychain, tassel necklace or simple pendant.)  Please visit our the photo section to see samples.

I made an appointment and brought in one of my bridesmaid dresses and a groomsman's tie. The owner spent the extra time and went around and pulled out several beads to match the colors. She kept putting pieces together until I had the perfect earrings (6 pairs for bridesmaids and 2 for flower girls). I now have the perfect gift for an excellent price!

when you work with Amanda and Kathleen, you truly get nothing less than EVERYTHING. their talents are unmatched and the gracious, respectful, happiness of their shop is a beacon of light in what can be a stressful time of planning, planning, PLANNING! my jewelry was perfect! i wore my mom's dress, so couldn't do the wild, blingy, funky look that i might normally sport, simply because that is not what a remade 40 year old dress calls for... and they NAILED it. my bracelets and earrings were gorgeous - still had the bling that people "expect" of me, but were dainty and perfect for my dress... my hair comb and jewels added the perfect touch of whimsy... and, when i was floundering for garters, Kat kindly reminded me that she also does those - and i was so much happier with them than with ANYTHING i had seen online! working with these two ladies is truly an experience in laughter, love, and professionalism, all rolled up into one!

truly could not have asked for a better complement to my beautiful dress.
