About Us

Founded in 1998 by sisters Gail and Jane Strieter, GemStreet USA and BeadStreet USA are the Midwest’s premier exposition of fine gems, jewelry, beads, minerals and fossils. Sadly Jane passed away in January 2020. Her laugh, her wit, her generosity of spirit will always be remembered. Gail is carrying on by producing the shows.Our exhibitors are chosen for their commitment to quality products, fair and honest pricing, and an unusual selection. In fact, most of the gorgeous items offered at our shows are one-of-a-kind and cannot be found anywhere else—from a $1 Egyptian silver charm to a $100 amethyst geode, and a $5,000 emerald pendant to a priceless 50 million-year-old fossil.  Contact us here.

Because of such a wide variety of merchandise, GemStreet USA’s quality shows attract many different types of guests, including:

• value-conscious consumers searching for beautiful finished jewelry for themselves or to give as gifts;

• professional and amateur artisans looking for high-quality yet affordable gems, minerals and manufacturing tools and accessories to create their own jewelry, including clippers, crimpers, stones, wire, torches, felt forms, displays and diamond saws;

• knowledgeable and novice gem, mineral and fossil collectors wanting to add to or start their collections;

• and homeowners in search of one-of-a-kind fossils and minerals to serve as unique and gorgeous accents to their home décor, including petrified wood, fossils, geodes, salt lamps, and selenite towers, plus specialty gifts like pens, wine openers, and bamboo masks.
