Chain Reaction Qld started out as a hobby, not intended as a business at all.
With interests in beaded jewellery and silversmithing as a hobby I was looking to source different suppliers for variety and pricing that wasn't currently available.
Often friends dropping in for a coffee with similar interest would ask - Do you have a spare strand of these beads? Do you think you could find these for me? Others would see my creations and over the years many custom pieces have been admired and sold from the kitchen bench! Lol!
From there it just got busier, we now stock everything from card making and scrapbooking, embellishments to quilling papers, all beading supplies with beads by the strand and the gram, sterling silver and silversmithing supplies.... hence the name Chain Reaction!!
Our foundation is to make hobby crafts like beading, resin, card making and even silversmithing affordable and enjoyable to all.
We are located just 10 minutes from Toowoomba CBD on the Brisbane side.
We are located in Richards Road, Postmans Ridge, look for the big shed just 200m up Richards Road.
We are open Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9am - 4pm and on the first Saturday Monthly 9am - 2pm.
We will continue to run a variety of workshops at Craft Camps, through Withcott Proogress Assn / Creative Corner and through Private group bookings.
Our extension which will include a purpose built workspace for many more workshops and guest artists is on track for completion early 2024
