Upcoming Classes - New Beads

I have been considering several classes for the upcoming weeks. A class on Christmas ornament covers has been requested several times so that is on the schedule. We will use one of Carol Lampole's patterns for the project. The class price will include a copy of the pattern.

There are several class discriptions up on the board at the shop. Stop in and sign up today. The holidays are coming and this is a great way to make special gifts for those on your list.

A new group of Czech glass has been hung on the wall. Lots of pretty colors for late summer and fall. Also in are some new findings, fireline and other new items. Come in while there is a good selection!

August Update

Here it is August already! July flew by and now it is time to start thinking about school. It seems as though the schools just let out and now they are announcing the return to classes. Speaking of classes, there are several on the calendar for this month at Highstrung Beads.

We are offering a couple of classes for the beautiful Christmas ball covers, sometimes called Ballgowns. There will be both day and evening times for interested students. Bring a friend and start on your first one, they make great gifts!

I will also offer a few classes in beading around Cabachons and rivolis as there has been some request for those. They make beautiful pendants and earrings can be done with smaller cabs and flatback crystals.

There are also peyote, RAW, and other off-loom stitch classes available on request. Call now or come in to schedule you next class. I have lots of daytime availablily and, of course, Thursday night is the late night at the store. There are lots of new seed beads to choose from too.

Call today, 334-356-7891!

Happy Beading

About Me

Montgomery, Alabama, United States
I've always loved jewelry and sparkly things, so when my life took a change I began considering my own shop. I started Highstrung Beads in January of 2003 and it is still going strong. The shop is now at it's third location and better than ever. I try to keep a selection of unusual items, pendants, and lots of gemstone as well as the standard bead items. I wish I could have even more beads in the shop, just like other bead lovers, there is never enough!!
