ABOCA Beads is a bead and jewelry store located in the center of Damariscotta, Maine–we provide a place to experience creativity.  All of the jewelry displayed has been made in the store; come find a perfect piece ready to wear or create your own.  We have a broad selection of gemstones, fresh water pearls, glass, wood, bone, and ceramic beads.  Our collection includes beads from all over the world including hand-made beads from Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana, Mali, Philippines, Czech Republic, Tibet, Nepal, Thailand, and Indonesia.  We also have a large variety of locally handcrafted beads and pendants so you can have a bit of Maine in your piece.

Our store is one of experience.  Enjoy perusing the jewelry on display, making your own piece, or letting us help you with a custom design.  We have kits available to make in the store, bring home for a future project or to present as a gift.  We enjoy working with customers to bring old jewelry back to life through repairs or re-design.  Take one of our many classes to further your jewelry making skills. Consider us for your next birthday party, social event, or night out with friends.  Whatever your interests or style, we love helping you create.
