As you enter the Bead Boutique the rainbow of colours is the first thing that you notice. Beads and stones of every colour, sorted into catergories. Located just two doors up from Glasgow, The Bear Boutique is one of Kitchener's most unique semi-precious gem store. Outside of gemstone beads, they carry a variety of semi-precious stones, chainmaille supplies, Swarovski crystals, charms, chains, sterling and wonderful handcrafted gifts. They also offer classes and have a repair service for earrings, rhinestones, custom jewellery and offer necklace rearranging.
We talked to Kayla, store manager about what the latest trends are in beads and she tells us Chakra Bracelets are very popular right now. These bracelets incorporate the arrangement of the Chakra colours through beads in a bracelet or other jewellery. The seven colours represent the seven chakras, one gemstone representing each Chakra. Chakras are literally translated to mean “energy vortexes”, and are depicted throughout eastern culture as being tied to the body. Each colour relates to a different energy point on the body. Sages of ancient India often prescribed stones, metals, or precious jewels to be worn in close contact with the skin. Each item has a very specific vibration that can affect us.
Kalya also shows us Mala and wooden rosary beads and they have them available as bead strings or as assembled jewellery items.
