All the beads are now out!!

THere is a great selection of stone in a variety of colors, sizes, and cuts. Cabs and Pendants from stone are also available. I am very pleased with the beads and other items, many prices at $4.00 a strand. Come in between now and November 17th.

The TRUNK SHOW beads have begun to arrive! There is so much to choose from in just the small amount that has come in. The selection will include: mixed stone strands; glass pearls; murano style glass beads; pendants; findings, and 8" strands of metal beads. Many of these items have not arrived yet but if the first ones are this nice, it can only get better!

Remember that this one will run through the 17 of November. It starts the end of this week. That is two weeks to make time to come and select new things for the holidays!

I will also have another arriving during this time that will include some things from China. I'm not sure of the variety, but she sends a good range of inexpensive items.

October updates

I can't believe we are halfway through October. Where has the year gone? Now folks are beginning to think about the holidays and gifts. With the economy like it is we are turning to more creative ideas for gifts for friends and family. Try your hand at jewelry. Take a class if you've never tried it or come in and look at the samples of projects available or through the books and magazines. There are several different Australian and Canadian periodicals available as well as the Beadwork and Bead & Button offerings.

Highstrung Beads just completed a trunk show and sale this week. Trunk shows give bead lovers a chance to see and buy beads I don't carry and what may be new on the beading scene. I am planning another one from a different supplier in a few weeks. That will be announced when I have the dates. It will go for a couple of weeks so everyone can get in and look through the selection. There will be more than gemstone, it will include metal beads, findings, pendants and much more!

If you want to learn to string a necklace, make earrings, or make items using off loom weaveing techniques, don't hesitate to call or come in. There is so much you can do with beads!

Bead Show And Sale


Three tables full of beads and trays.

Looking for beads to design your fall and winter jewelry then don't miss this show.
There are hundreds of semi-precious beads to choose from in so many shapes, sizes, and colors. I've noted a number of new styles of cut and different kinds of stone I have never carried before.

REMEMBER: This is a one day show. the beads go back next week!

About Me

My photo
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!!
