Atelier im Kornmesserhaus was founded in 2005, as a bead and jewelry shop in downtown Ulm, Baden-Württemberg. The house, formerly the city's granary and grain market, was built in 1544 and lovingly restored in 2004 after passing into private ownership. Parts of the original timber structure remain visible, both in the shop and the apartments above.
At the shop, we offer handmade jewelry and a wide selection of beads - made of glass, gems, shells, sterling silver, gold-plated, etc., as well as anything you might need for beading and jewelry making. Our website includes an online shop.
Schmucksets - prepackaged kits for jewelry making that include everything you need for a project: beads, thread, clasp, and instructions (so far only the crochet neclace is available in English - sorry!), excluding tools such as pliers, crochet hooks, or needles - those can be found under Schmuckzubehör. Choose from Crochet Necklace, Rope Crochet, Räupchen (little caterpillar), or our newest addition, Freya, an ancient wire weaving technique (Viking Knit) we are very excited about.
Rocailles - seed beads and bugles in red/orange/yellow, purple/pink, blue/turquoise, green/teal, brown/gold/cream, black/white. Our seed beads are made of glass, and are sold in glass tubes of appr. 8g per tube, at € 1,20 per tube unless otherwise stated.
