JellyBeads of Mogo opened in August 2005 in the loft above the Mogolicious at the northern end of Mogo before moving to the cottage next to the Mogo Nursery in the centre of the village. In October 2008 we moved to Mogo Cottage located next to the old church pottery. We had seriously outgrown the little cottage. Previously, we sold our beads regularly at the Moruya Country Markets.
At JellyBeads, we love to share our knowledge and love of beads.
We offer a delicious range of beads from around the world. They look good enough to eat. A love of Asian design led us to bring in a range of Cloisonné, Enamel, Ceramic, Cinnabar, Boxwood and Peking Glass beads. We have also built up a wide range of Japanese Seed Beads from Miyuki and Matsuno including Delicas, Drop and Tila Beads. This range continues to expand.
We carry a range of sterling silver findings and beads from Bali. Our other products include: freshwater pearls, mother of pearl beads, coral, semi-precious and lamp work and foil beads from China. We have also introduced high quality tools made especially for us in green and purple combo. We also carry a range of handmade lamp work beads from a number of Australian lamp workers. Traditional beads from Greece, Africa and Kashmir and Kazuri beads from Kenya are also stocked. Kazuri means “small and beautiful”. Vintage Lucite Beads are now in stock.
We run classes to order. Through Eurobodalla Adult Education we are offering beginner and continuing courses in Silversmithing. We also arrange for national and international teachers to give workshops in their specialities. We offer one-on-one tuition during quieter times to teach you the basics or a particular technique so that you can further your skills and enjoyment of beading.
School holiday classes run twice daily in the Summer and Autumn Holidays. In Winter holidays we run classes in the afternoons and bookings are essential. Our DIY table is always available. For a small cost per hour, you choose your beads, use our tools, equipment and space to design your own piece, make it and take it home that afternoon. There is always help available to get your started and finished. We can cater for birthday party activities and hens’ parties and will design activities to suit the skill level and to a budget.
Children are always welcome in our little shop. We pay jellybeans for beads picked up from the floor – hence our name.
Winter trade Tue-Sun 10-4. Closed Mondays.
