Fall Hill Bead and Gem opened in Little Falls NY in August 2008. Owners Kim Hergert and Adam Riddle came to Little Falls from Pittsburgh Pa. They were drawn in by the unique geology and beautiful landscapes, after coming to visit the area for over 10 years. They were pleased to discover that Little Falls was not only home to picturesque vistas, but a vibrant and creative community as well. Kim and Adam bring with them a heavy creative background, including such mediums as glass beadmaking, stained glass, collage art, painting, fiber crafts, beadweaving, and carpentry. They have been published in national magazines, such as Bead and Button. Fall Hill Bead and Gem serves as an outlet for their extensive love of beads and all things mineral.
