Why handmade gifts are the best!

It's the surprise attached when giving a gift!

Handmade gifts can bring tears, laughter, and expressions that add an unforgettable experience.  When you give handmade you can choose to create a one-of-a-kind gift.  

Only you have it!

One-of-a-kind gifts are something you'll treasure forever.  Nothing beats a special gift you know no one else will have.  

They have a personal meaning

The best part about making homemade gifts is what they mean to you personally.  Anyone looking in from the outside can see what it is, but only you really know what it means.  

Creates a memorable moment

Anyone can take the easy route, and buy you a gift card to your favorite store, order online. Often times homemade gifts prove the person this is a gift from the heart.  However the person thought long and hard about what you'd really enjoy!   

About Us

Our Products

Bonita Bead Boutique was founded in 2005 by Ann & Anita Tristan twin-sisters.  After several years of working under consignment at the Toledo Museum of Art,  the Tristans set out on their own, selling their jewelry at specialty stores at one-stop trunk show. Now, as business owners, they sell their own custom made jewelry and jewelry from artists from all over the world, and now host trunk shows at Bonita Bead Boutique, giving local artists and beaders the opportunity to showcase their work.

Of course, the Tristans' own work will be displayed regularly in their boutique.  They also restore and repair old pieces of jewelry, and take special orders for proms, weddings or other special occasions.  

It is a full service bead shop that offers unmatched, extensive selection of: vintage beads/treasures, gemstones 8"-16" strands, Czech glass, trade beads, findings, tools, stringing materials-cords, leather, chain along with loose beads, ready-made jewelry and accessories. 
It doesn't matter if you're a beginner, intermediate, or expert crafter, BBB is an invaluable resource.  We can teach you basics of stringing, knotting, and wire work techniques.    ​ 

More than Just a Store

Can a store be more than just a place to buy supplies? Absolutely! Our staff is always on hand to answer all of your questions about what products are best for your projects.  

We are a family oriented brick-mortar bead and jewelry boutique located in Arrowhead Park District in Maumee.  We originated in Historic Uptown Maumee since 2005.  Bonita Bead Boutique was the first retail store in Maumee that offered their guests creativity and imagination with the jewelry they wanted to make.  BBB also offers classes, jewelry repair service, fine jewelry repair, watch repair and hosts parties
Bonita Bead Boutique, the store name is a nod to the Tristan's cultural origins. “Bonita” means beautiful in Spanish.  Our goal has always been to bring you rare beads, jewelry, classes, to educate you about technique, and encourage you to experiment and design with beads.
