Will your hours change when you move?

March 1, 2017
Yes.  We took a long hard look at the hours for the other businesses in SoMa and came up with the following schedule:

Monday:  Closed
Tuesday to Friday:  11am - 6pm
Saturday:  11am - 5pm
Sunday:  11am - 3pm

The hours are subject to change as we all adjust to the new location.  The biggest change is we will be closed Monday instead of Sunday.  We'd love to hear your feedback on the new hours.  email ellie at argentabead dot com or call 501.537.0928.

What stone is this bead?

January 30, 2015
When shopping for stone beads we try to identify the stone before buying, however, this is not always possible.  Sometimes the vendor doesn't know, sometimes the vendor is overwhelmed and can't answer every query, sometimes the vendor forgets to write the stone name on the bag - the list goes on.  When we know the stone we write the name on the tag as we price it.  When we don't know a stone and need to look it up, here are a few websites we go to.  If you're trying to identify a stone you mi...

Why do you not offer refunds on classes?

January 16, 2015
Try looking at it this way - what if your boss told you to come in Monday morning at 9 am prepared to give her and 3 of your co-workers a presentation on what you do in a typical week at work.  You'd spend the weekend gathering your thoughts, practicing what you would say, maybe get together some samples of your work.  Monday morning comes and you get to work early to set up for your presentation.  9 am comes and goes.  No one has shown up.  You call your boss.  Oops - she forgot to tell you ...

Can you help me find a (bead, finding, string, etc) you don't have in stock?

May 22, 2012
We will do our absolute best!  It's true, "a picture is worth a thousand words".  Send us a picture - or draw one - of what you're looking for.  If you don't have one, it's ok, you'll need to describe what you're looking for in as much detail as possible.  Using common frames of reference are great, i.e. "it's the size of a quarter" where, "it's the size of my thumb" is not since thumb sizes are different from person to person.  Include all applicable details:  size, shape, color, texture, gu...
