Trunk Show

The new trunk show arrived, has been inventoried and is ready for shoppers. There is a huge selection of beads, many at $4.00 a strand. The show will run for two weeks so everyone has plenty of time to shop.

Memorial weekend is over and I hope everyone stayed safe and enjoyed the three day weekend. Several of my friends are presently serving in Iraq and my son and daughter-in-law will deploy in September for their second time. Wish all our people could come home.

Have a good week!

I just received a new trunk show today. It should be ready for viewing by Monday, May 25th. There are a bumpy pearls, freshwater pearls, including coin pearls; lots of gemstone in a variety of cuts and pendants; Murano style glass beads; metal beads and findings and so much more. The trunk show will run until June 17th, so everyone has time to come in and look through the selection.

IT's always exciting to look through new things and find just the right beads, so come in and dig through the treasure!

It has been a busy Saturday. The table had folks at work all day. First a class and then a group of dedicated beaders. The ladies in the class were new to beading but had no problem designing necklaces to suit their taste and personalities. I look forward to them returning again.

Anyone wanting to learn how to make jewelry, either strung or woven, need only to stop in and arrange a date. Learn all the basicis and start making jewelry for gifts or to match that special outfit.

Happy Beading,

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!!
