About

Welcome! Treefrog Beads offers vintage and unusual jewelry making supplies. You’ll find antique seed beads, vintage glass cabs and cameos, nailheads and sew ons, old stock rhinestones and more. I hope they’ll inspire you to create wonderful things!

My name is Andrea Adams, and these quirky treasures come from my collection. I’ve been a bead artist and collector since the 1980’s, and this site is my attempt to share some of that collection with other creative souls. If you love the patina of vintage brass, or the sparkle of old Swarovski, you’ve found the right spot! Many of these components were originally manufactured for the costume jewelry trade, and some date to the turn of the century or older. Most of these beads and cabochons are no longer being produced, so the colors are unique and carry a bit of history.

My handwork can be found on my other website, Beadmask.com. My creations range from functional to fantastical, and you’ll notice that my work incorporates many of the same beads and cabochons sold here.
