- Nia Chesswas, owner
Welcome to The Bead Hold!
We are a Kiwi business based in Taranaki, New Zealand, owned and operated by our own Queen Bead, Nia Chesswas. We first opened in Point Chevalier, Auckland in 2004 and relocated to Taranaki in 2013. 

Our Stratford premises are open on Tuesday mornings for the public, and we open by appointment on Thursdays. Our online shop has over six thousand items, you can shop 24/7, and we ship on Tuesdays and Thursdays. With 5 bead babes at home your emails can be answered at interesting times of the morning, but they always get answered! 

Nia hand selects 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 locally owned family business and is much appreciated.

Feel free to contact Nia with any queries or requests.

We recently welcomed Hannah and Aimee to the team. These lovely and efficient ladies pack your orders, restock the shelves, make and package mixes and generally help keep things going smoothly with the beads. Hannah and her husband are dairy farmers with 4 children, and Aimee and her husband are sheep and beef farmers with 2 children. As busy mums we can support each other, be flexible around children and farm jobs and enjoy some company working with and around beautiful colourful things.

COMPOSTABLE BAG? OR CARDBOARD SATCHEL?

Our default packaging is now compostable bags. However, no more feeling guilty for not composting the compostable bag, you can choose a cardboard satchel instead. If you have a preference, please state it in the message section at the checkout. Cardboard satchels can be reused, repurposed, recycled and also composted if you choose. Larger, bulkier items may be wrapped in brown paper. We also use bubblewrap with most orders to ensure their intact arrival.
