Our Story

Family owned storefront with 30+ years in the retail and wholesale bead and rock business.

Welcome to Turquoise Coyote Collectables - the biggest little bead shop in Louisiana! We offer the largest selection of beads, rocks, and Native American jewelry and art in the state. 


We first opened in Ponchatoula back in 1991 when my husband Robert retired from the U.S. Military with over 20 years of service. 


In 2022, we moved our shop to nearby Hammond as a result of the aftermath of hurricane Ida. 


Today, we stock hundreds of thousands of strands of beads, thousands of cabachons for silversmiths, wire wrappers, and a full line of pewter and sterling beads and findings and wire of all types and sizes. We are home to a full line of Native American jewelry, from squash blossom necklaces to rings and things, as well as Native American art, including fetish animal carvings, and katchinas. We also offer rocks for the collector and the metaphysical crowd, including finished bracelets, earrings, and necklaces.


Our staff has over 80 years of experience in the beading industry. We invite you to come on in and look at our ever changing inventory!
