About Beads & Brushstrokes

Beads & Brushstrokes, formerly Country Bumpkin Arts and Crafts as been serving the lowcountry for 32 years. We have grown over the years just as the families we have served. We get a kick out of seeing the children of children who took classes here over 20 years ago.

Today, there is very little "country" in Country Bumpkin, but like a "bumpkin" there remains a lot of free spirit and creative living.
