Welcome to EurekaEureka

Welcome to EurekaEureka where we offer you truly one of a kind luxury vintage beads and treasures from our trips all over the world during the 1970's and 1980's. Almost all of our beads have a story behind them which we will share with you, as we think it's both interesting and educational to know about the beads you are buying and using in your own designs. There is also a selection of my own hand crafted jewelry which incorporates unique vintage beads from the 1940's -1980's and acquired at least 30 years ago when we traveled the world hunting for truly unusual beads. Many of these actual designs sold under the name "Beadles" during the 1980's in museum shops and mail order catalogs such as the Smithsonian's Museum of Natural History, the Chicago Art Museum,& The Sackler Gallery. Bloomingdales & Famous-Barr also carried my work. IMPORTANT NOTICE: POSTAGE RATES HAVE RISEN DRAMATICALLY IN 2016 ORDERS INSIDE USA: A charge of $3.60 covers any first class shipment up to 8 ounces. Our beads vary so much in weight that it is impossible for us to apply a single add-on charge for multiple product orders. We will continue to refund to customers any amount that greatly exceeds our actual cost of shipping and handling. ORDERS OUTSIDE USA: International First Class rates are now crazy: $13.50 for any package weighing from 1-8 ounces. Even an order for 2-3 small bead items may cost $13.50 or more, depending on the type of material (stone versus resin, for example). Please bear with us for a few weeks while we change our listings to account for the new rates. We apologize in advance if we have to adjust the postage cost of an order that has been placed. We will understand if an order is rescinded when the postage cost is too high relative to the product value. More »
