Bead Aura, Neal's Yard
- 3 Neal's Yard
Bead Aura was a bead shop in Neal's Yard, Covent Garden. It has now closed. The premises were later taken over by a cafe/restaurant called Native.
The information below is retained for historical purposes.
Upstairs — huge range of glass strung beads (miliflore, fire polished crystal), glass pendants, findings, chain by the metre, loose glass, plastic and wooden beads, plus seed beads by weight.
Basement (down spiral staircase) — huge range of semi precious beads, mostly in strings. Shop isn't particularly big and the aisles are quite narrow; there isn't anywhere to sit down. I always seem to fall foul of the bargain stand just by the door as you come in.
