Ain’t Miss Bead Haven’s  owner, Laura, is a lover of all things handmade, beaded, sparkly and shiny!!!  Originally from New Orleans, Laura also lived in the Southwest and Northeast, returning to Louisiana, and moving to the Charlotte area with her fiance Kevin following Hurricane Katrina.

During her careers in the restaurant and hospitality IT industries, and retirement planning , she longed for more free time to create.  When the opportunity presented itself to venture out on her own and do what she loved, she jumped into the bead store business along with her loving and supportive business partner and fiance Kevin. Miles the Shop Dog joined the bead store party shortly after we opened our doors in October 2011.
