About Bonita Bead Boutique

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.  


Picture the Possibilities

They also restore and repair old pieces of jewelry, and take special orders for proms, weddings or other special occasions.   The jewelry designs are fashionable yet timeless.  The jewelry is all about reflecting the exploration, part of expression, and wearing a beautiful memory.
