Bead Shops in London, Cambridge, Paris


I'm an enthusiastic beader/jewellery maker (hobby) who will be visiting London, Cambridge and Paris next month. If anyone can help recommend good/interesting beadshops in London, Cambridge or Paris, I will be most grateful.

I am particularly keen on getting modern glass beads, handblown glass beads, sterling silver beads/findings or Czech faceted beads. Not the plastic, wooden types or anything antique. There are many shops selling on-line but nothing beats walking into a shop to see the real thing.

I know this is a travel site but there seems to be an awful lot of people who have a wealth of info, so I thought I should just try and ask. Thanks.

Thanks for the thanks. Forgot to say that while in Paris you could always try a flea market (there are several) for beads. They sell vintage clothing and linens so perhaps beads as well.

I don't remember the name, but there is one in Paris on rue de Sevigne in the Marais. It is very close to the St. Paul metro stop.
