Happy Thanksgiving

I will be in the shop Wednesday before Thanksgiving and back on Friday. Hope you will find time to come in and shop during Black Friday. There is a small trunk show still avaiable and lots of new stones and other items throughout the shop. The newest Beadwork magazine arrived yesterday and I have copies of the Step-by-Step Wire available too.

I am looking forward to good eating and some rest on Thanksgiving Day. Hope everyone has a fabulous feast as well.

New Semi-precious now in

A new shipment of semi-precious in now in for the Holidays! One of my vendors was just by and I spent too much again! I also got some pendants and other beads. Findings and other items are now available too. Come in today,check out the selection and get started on your gifts, times awasting!

I was really excited to find out that one of my customers got some great awards at the Fair! I will post pictures later today. Several other people have entered and won in the past and I hope some of you will start thinking about entering some of your work too. Don't forget the magazines either, they have pages that show work from their readers.

More later!

November at Highstrung Beads

Lots of new things are in at the shop. The holidays are getting closer and folks are beginning their projects for gifts and party wear. I now have a selection of nice sterling and gold plated chains as well as a few sterling chain choices. The little santas, snowmen, and candycane beads are aavailable too.

The Trunk Shows have been going well and there are still a few more days for the big one. If you haven't been in there is still a good selection of stone and $4:00 strands. I have really been happy with this show and will try to have one again in a couple of months.

New things are coming in and will be out as soon as possible!

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!!
