About Us

QB
- Nia Chesswas, owner
Welcome to The Bead Hold!
We are a New Zealand business based in Taranaki, New Zealand, owned and operated by our own Queen Bead, Nia Chesswas. We first opened in Point Chevalier, Auckland 2005 and relocated to Taranaki in 2013. 

Our Stratford premises are open on Wednesday mornings for the public, and we open for groups by appointment. Our online shop has close to six thousand items, and we ship Monday - Thursday. With 4 bead babes at home your emails can be answered at interesting times of the morning, but they always get answered!

Nia handselects our products from around the globe, designs kitsets, maintains the website, creates tutorials and packs the parcels, sending our beads and findings throughout New Zealand and the world and finds time to do the accounts and GST . . . also at interesting hours of the day. 

Your support is essential to maintaining our small kiwi family business and much appreciated.

Feel free to contact Nia with any queries or requests.
