Spring is here!

Finally the trees are coming out of their dormant period and blooming! I love Spring and all the colors. There is lots of color in fashion this spring too. Steinmart had a variety of yellow, turquoise, coral and green in their store. I love it when fashion and season are colorful. So many years beige and white dominate the scene.

We have still have a selection of flashy, colorful crystal glass beads left in the Trunk Show. It has thinned out but there are still some chunky beads left. I also purchased a small amount of African beads yesterday. The choices he had were overwhelming. I had not seen this particular vendor before so it was hard to make decisions on what to get. He had some fabulous antique ones but just too expensive for this time. Mostly I purchased small sandcast beads, African glass Christmasbeads, and metal in the smaller sizes. Maybe I will spring for more elaborate beads next time.

Hope to see you soon!

Update on Trunk Show

Wow, I cannot believe how fast these beads are flying out the door! There is still a great selection though. Folks have ooh'd and ahhh'd over them and taken more than they had planned. The prices are great too!

All the strands are 8" and the 4mm bicones start at $1.65. The 8mm" rondells are $3.00 and going fast. There are lots of colors for spring and summer jewelry too. I need to grab a few for myself before the best ones are all gone!

Come and bead with us!!

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!!
