Located in Greenville, South Carolina, The Beaded Frog has been going strong since 2003. As the business has grown and interest in beading has skyrocketed in the Southern town, The Beaded Frog has become a staple of creative life there. In her welcome statement on the store’s website, Heidi Woody says, “The Frog [has become] something more than just another little retail store in downtown Greenville.” The store offers everything a bead enthusiast or creative person might need to start a project. The Frog features many varieties of beads, gemstones, supplies for beading projects, and finished jewelry items you can give as gifts. They also offer a wide array of classes if you want to learn beading, and there are books available for self-study. For the social aspect, they have beading parties, private events called a ‘Night Out,’ and events that are Just for Kids. No matter what you’re looking for, The Beaded Frog seems to have it!
