a bit off the beadin' path but well worth the trip!
finally finished our inventory and we still have way too many beautiful Czech
glass strands, fresh water pearls and overstock of Swarovski® crystals
(hundreds), so while the glut continues, these are DEEPLY DISCOUNTED.
Czech glass strands and Swarovski® crystals are NOW 60%.
pearls are NOW 40% off.
sterling toggles are 40% off.
want more room to continue to increase our
beads, Japanese seed beads, and semi-precious stones.
We repair bead jewelry.
Our Etsy store has Swarovski® crystals, vintage Swarovski® and rare vintage Czech nail heads.
Exciting bead news
Joyce Scott was awarded a MacArthur grant which carries with it a $650,000
stipend. Her 3-dimensional improvisational bead work is amazing is. She has had shows at the Baltimore Art Museum and New York's
Museum of Art and Design, to name a few. The now defunct Bead Society of
Greater Chicago brought her in several times so some of us "oldies"
have had the pleasure of meeting and studying with her.
For more 3-dimensional bead work, artist Liza Lou won a MacArthur grant several years ago.
Both artists are definitely worth an internet search.
