I can't believe one quarter of 2009 is already gone. It has been busy lately at Highstrung Beads. We had a Trunk Show from the end of March through April 11th that was really good. I hope to bring in another in the next few months. It's nice to have a new selection of beads and other items from time to time.

Several people have been in to learn various beading techniques recently. I enjoy teaching one on one or several students. Plans for Stress Relief night during the summer months is in the plans for those beaders that want to meet others, learn new things about beading and just have a good time. More information on this in upcoming days. Any ideas? Please comment or share with me.

All the new Australian Magazines are in as well as a new one from England. This is just a trial to see if folks like it. New findings in copper and various other metals are stocked too.

Trunk Show in Progress

The beads for the Trunk show are now here! The vendor has sent a great selection of stone beads priced from $4.00 per strand and up. There is also a variety of metal beads in gold, silver and copper colors. Pendants of all kinds and some great stone donuts in different shapes. I was really please with the selection this time and hope everyone will enjoy them as much as I have. They will be for sale through April 13th, come in soon!

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!!
