About Kiowa Rose
A unique Victorian-style bead shop with an extensive beadwork gallery.
- Located in the historic district of Niles, in Fremont, California, Kiowa Rose is not your ordinary bead shop. Nestled amongst the antique shops and restaurants of this lovely area, Kiowa Rose Beads and Supplies stands out as something special - and that's from the outside. Once you set foot within the store, you realize you've found that perfect combination of Art Nouveau and modern beading.
- Rosie Long, proprietress of this fine establishment, has been creating works of beaded art for thirty-five years. Her store reflects this deep love of art, and it provides a source of beads and supplies to match no other. Every wall, every surface of the store is utilized to display beaded works and beads for sale - all shapes, sizes and colors are to be found here. Antique sideboards, dressers, cupboards and display cases are all utilized to showcase beads and bead projects - and row upon row of tubes of seed beads and strands of Czech glass beads festoon the walls, sorted by color and style.
- And classes... from bead stringing basics to bead weaving to bead embroidery - and more! Rosie and her team of instructors share their knowledge and teach at all levels - find out more about classes at Kiowa Rose, and view the current class schedule and project descriptions !
