Beads by Bonnie is a small home based business established in 1994 in New Berlin,

 Illinois and is owned and operated by Bonnie Minett.

It all began one day,  when I received a bead catalogue in the mail.  I had always been active in making different crafts and since I love jewelry, I decided I would buy the necessary equipment to make myself some bracelets.  Of course, the first one went together effortlessly,  and so then I was hooked.  I ordered more beads and more beads.  Soon I had far too many beads for one person, so I decided that I would venture out and start my own business. The rest, as they say, is history....
