Nomadic Notions was founded by Robert Corbin in 1989. It has grown over the past 16 years to become one of the most comprehensive bead retail store in Texas, and at one point, he had as many as five stores scattered across Texas and Tennessee. The idea was to provide a concept store that allowed customers to create their own jewelry. Our amazing sales staff can help someone construct a necklace, bracelet, earrings, or whatever their imagination might dream up, right there in the store. We also offer a wide variety of both day and evening classes!
We have traveled the world to bring our customers a collection of beads that now spans 30 different countries and over 10,000 types of beads and clasps. In addition to beads, we also carry silver jewelry and hand-crafted gifts from Bali, Indonesia, India, Mexico, Nepal, and the United States. At this time, we cannot offer our collection online, but we encourage you to browse our merchandise listings.
Mission: Our company was founded on the idea that the art of beading is a global link to all cultures, and our goal is to be more than just a retail store, but to be your link to a variety of beads and ethnic curiosities from around the globe.
We offer our customers over 1 million types of beads and findings from more than 20 different countries. We have a huge selection of beading supplies, jewelry-making tools, and craft bead books. In addition to beads, we carry a complete line of finished jewelry and hand-crafted gift items from around the world.
At Nomadic Notions, there is always a creative and knowledgeable "Nomad" (salesperson) available to answer any question and to help you with your beading projects. Our Nomads teach inspirational beading classes, throw fun bead parties, and offer custom design and repair services.
