January 2010

Hello and Happy New Year!

Looks like we have a slight repreve from the icy cold weather we just experienced. Today is beautiful, warm and sunny. I hope many of you are able to get out and enjoy the day.

Highstrung just received a new shipment of Czech fire-polish crystal in 3, 4, and 6mm. There are a number of projects in the recent bead magazines that use this size of beads. I've also made a cute and simple bracelet using 3 and 4 mm beads with size 11/0 seed beads. I've also picked out some other pressed glass beads too. Come by soon to check them out.

The PMC classes for Jan.30 and 31 are about full. We are really excited and ready to make something beautiful with Barbara Grant.

I am also going to try a new trunk show vendor later this month. They have lots of crystal so keep look out for the announcement of dates.

Happy Beading!

About Me

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!!
