Trendy jewelry lovers have two choices: Suck it up at retail stores and pay exorbitant prices for quote-unquote designer pieces, or learn how to DIY. We're fans of the latter. A good bead store is a fashionista's best friend. At Bead Me, you can make a necklace worthy of sale at Neiman Marcus for a fraction of a price. Nestled in a strip of stores near Allen's Drugs, Bead Me is a spacious, beautiful shop that offers Miami's largest selection of seed beads and Swarovski crystals. Swarovskis here go for 8 to 60 cents, a real bargain considering how much a pair of the crystal earrings can cost at those cute boutiques on South Beach. Strands of beads run $2.90 to $30, and for the hapless aspiring designer, classes cost $20 to $25, a worthwhile investment if you're planning to keep up with the hottest trends.

There are no good bead stores in Miami. Bead Me is a joke with very little supplies and the one next to the Falls, while it has more supplies, they are overpriced and items are not labeled correctly. It's like the owner doesn't know what he is doing. He is not a beader and wants to keep things so secret so you don't find the item on the Internet that he fails to put important information on his labels. If you are making a pattern of something and you can't find the right bead because he doesn't label the color ID it makes it difficult to purchase the items you need for a particular pattern. His supply list is also very limited. If you want a truly good bead store you have to go all the way to West Palm Beach to Crystal Bead Creations.

I have been to both and in my opinion Bead Me has Much better prices and the owners are super nice, they make you feel like family. Their bead selection is sometimes limited though. Maybe the new location will help improve that.

Bead Boutique has a large selection but the prices are much higher, they sell seed beads in much smaller containers for double the price and the natural stone selection is not as wide as at Bead me. They have a pretty good findings and clasp selection though, but nothing in gold or S Silver.

Bead Me has a much higher product quality overall. Nothing there fells "cheap" which I cannot say for the other store.

Plus, did I mention the owner and staff are always so nice!
