Selecting beads and gemstones is a hands-on thing. Jewelry makers and designers cannot simply purchase items online. We need to touch them.

Praha Beads and Jewelry

"Praha" is Czech for Prague. I am of Bohemian descent and my husband's family is from Prague. I travel to Prague and other European cities as often as I can to find glass beads that cannot be found online or at gem shows in the States. I take special pride that each piece in the boutique is hand-selected by myself and is something I would wear.

The Praha Beads and Jewelry boutique is a dream come true for me. I've always been torn between my love of purchasing fine semi-precious gemstones and specialty beads and creating my own jewelry line, so I've decided to combine them in one boutique.

In my experience, purchasing gemstones and glass beads is a form of therapy. Looking for the perfect specialty bead can be a transformative experience. And as we know, certain gemstones provide healing qualities for those who hold and wear them. For this reason, purchasing gemstones is a very intuitive thing. We offer a wide selection of jewelry components and finished jewelry in a relaxed and calming setting in a European-inspired boutique.
