From Elise in NYC….”Regardless of how many miles from Rochester, New York I am, "Zoom" -ing into Bead Breakout for a virtual class is a highlight in my calendar!  Not only is connecting easy, but it is also a wonderful way to learn new techniques and create fabulous pieces of jewelry from a far but with "up-close-and-personal" instruction and camaraderie.  BB O is a unique destination for new and experienced beaders with a staff of skilled makers whose enthusiasm for the art and craft of beading is remarkable! Buy beads and findings and take a class - just break away and bead! BB O - one of my happy places!”

From Neetta in Virginia, “During my search for private virtual lessons on Beading, I fell upon Bead Breakout. To know more about them and what they offered, I called them and was delighted to find that I could speak to a person who addressed all my questions and concerns instead of talking to a machine. And Wallah! I found Bead Breakout to be my one-stop-shop for all my beading needs. They offered virtual lessons to cater to my personal preferences. They have a perfect set up with multiple cameras that make the zoom sessions so easy to follow. Their staff is kind, helpful and most of all very patient. They even guide me with my beading needs. I found many other companies like them but, chose to go with Bead Breakout as they are very reasonably priced and advise me with my purchases to get only what I need. I am loving every minute of my time with them.  I couldn’t have asked for more”.

From Emily…." Best bead shop in Rochester! Seriously, the customer service is AMAZING and so is the selection. If you have time sign up for a class! The instructors are top notch and you don’t have to pay for the lesson, just the materials (whatever is left over you get to take home! I usually have enough for another craft). The classes are a great way to hang with friends or make new ones! They help you as much or as little as you want with your jewelry which makes a wonderful learning environment. I could never go anywhere else, thank you guys so much!”

From Bryanna…".Never had a bad experience here. They have practically everything that you need for your project. I love coming here, plus they are super helpful and give me lots of ideas to help me with my projects. Sometimes they have the better ideas and I can always count on their advice."
