About

Monty’s Beads is an Aladdins Cave of gemstones, freshwater pearls and bespoke handmade jewellery in the heart of Exeter.

We pride ourselves on providing quality niche services from creative workshops to jewellery repair. Additionally, we offer all the tools and components you could possibly need to create your own masterpiece (or, if you’re not a creative type) we can do all the hard work for you with our bespoke jewellery making service.

Upon entering our shop, the first thing you’ll notice is our extensive range of gemstone beads – a rainbow of colour to inspire your creativity. We love stones! You can find gemstone specimens, tumble stones and fossils from all over the world at Monty’s. We also stock an extensive range of freshwater pearls in an array of shapes, sizes and colours, some of which you may never have seen before.

What is possibly unknown to many is that here in our little shop we have a fully equipped jewellery making studio. We host a range of workshops including Silversmithing & Stone Setting, Wirework, Pearl Knotting and the amazing Precious Metal Clay. Becky, Andrew and Madeline are here on hand to take you step-by-step through each workshop and you take away whatever you make! Each workshop has a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 6 attendees, a perfect idea for your next get together.

Being surrounded by such beauty promotes inspiration and wonderful new ideas of what we can create. We showcase our designs throughout the shop and all our one-off pieces are ready to purchase. Our bespoke design and ability to provide you with something just for YOU is an unrivalled service here within the city and we love a new challenge, come in and let us know your ideas and watch us work our magic.

We are located on the corner of Little Castle Street just 30 metres from the high street and are open Tuesday to Saturday 10am-5pm.

We can’t wait to meet you.
