Bead Store ABOUT US – Praha® Beads and Jewelry

Free Shipping on Your Purchase Over $75.00!



Due to Covid 19, illness in the family and high rent and utilities, we have had to re-evaluate our Business Plan and make some drastic (yet exciting) changes!

We have gone mobile! 



We opened our bricks and mortar store in November of 2019. Praha Beads and Jewelry was located at 215 S. Union Street, Suite 8, Alexandria, VA 22314. However, due to COVID we had to shutter our doors for several months and we have been struggling ever since. 

Luckily we signed only a two-year lease and the term is up! We are moving out and going mobile! 

Now, we are a mobile bead store specializing in semi-precious gemstones, African beads, wooden beads, glass beads from all over the world, including Czech glass beads that we have not seen in the U.S.--we purchase them in the Czech Republic--Swarovski crystals, tools and precious metal findings. 

Check out our Home Page for more information on our mobile store!

I adore all things Jane Austin and the Regency Period. Our designs are inspired from “Old-World” pieces crafted in Europe. Additionally, Praha is the Czech word for Prague (the capital of the Czech Republic). Both my husband and I are of Czech decent and travel there yearly to visit with family and friends. I am overwhelmingly inspired by the Czech people, culture and architecture. I find much inspiration for my designs on my travels.

We began Praha Jewelry Design 19 years ago after such a visit. I love mixing various gemstones to create pretty and feminine pieces that will continue to delight and enchant. Each piece has an “Old-World/European feel” to them.

We use the highest quality gemstones, glass, sterling silver, gold fill and vermeil.

We hope you enjoy wearing these pieces as much as we enjoy designing them.
