Urban Bead Gallery

Rockbrook Village is excited to announce the addition of Urban Bead Gallery to their ever-growing list of retail shops. Urban Bead Gallery offers the largest selection of beads in the state of Nebraska.

“When the International Bead Market closed, there was an opportunity to open a bead store directly next door!” says Kim Boeckman, new owner of the Urban Bead Gallery. Kim says her main priority is keeping seed beads available for the beading community. Urban Bead Gallery also offers one-on-one classes, jewelry repair, and all the supplies you need for beading.

Boeckman has been beading since 1988. She is a former employee of International Bead Market, where she worked for four years and is familiar with all methods of beadweaving. She made the decision to purchase the store after the owners announced their retirement and plans to close the store. After purchasing, she refined her product offerings, rebranded and moved the shop to the bay next door. 

Customers can find Urban Bead Gallery at 2936 South 110th Ct, Omaha, NE 68144, directly next to the former International Bead Market. Their hours are Tuesday - Friday 10 am - 6 pm, Saturday 10 am - 5 pm, and closed on Sundays and Mondays.
