BEADMANIA (article first published : 2002-01-1)

Beadmania, situated on the corner of Henwood and Argyle Roads, offers everything anyone working in beadcraft could possibly need.

Owners Chris and Marcelle Scott-Winlow have been in the bead business for 17 years. “Each year makes us more addicted to our passion which is beads,” they explain. “We have concentrated on beading for the clothing industry for the past 12 years and five years ago started to sell and teach various beadcraft. Primarily we started off trading on Essenwood market and this was where we saw the need for a specialist shop dealing in beads for all the crafts and hobbies.”

Chris developed a beadweaving loom which is manufactured and sold at Beadmania and the Scott-Winlows are hoping to get into the export market with this in the very near future.

Marcelle teaches bead weaving, jewellery-making and beading techniques on clothing. They also undertake private beadwork on wedding, evening and dance dresses as well as wedding headgear and jewellery made to order.

Beadmania is centrally situated and offers easy parking and air-conditioned (a must in Durban’s summer heat)! Pop in and browse through a good selection of books and magazines.
