Last days for the Trunk Show Beads!

This is the last week for the Trunk show. It has been well attended but there is still a great selection! If one is looking for Holiday ideas the Murano style glass makes a great bracelet. There are many mixed strands that are lovely and only $4.00 each. Don't miss this show as it will be the last for the year.

Come in soon!

It's been a busy week at Highstrung Beads. I had a nice class recently with some of the Embroidery Guild making Christmas Ornament covers. This was the largest group I have had in a long time. The Trunk Show is going great too. Lots of the beads have found new homes in the past week. I have even adopted a few for myself. Presently, I am working on a necklace incorporating a cab from the show. I hope to get it finished before the Mistletoe Artists and Crafters Market next week. I have several other projects in the works as well. It is hard not to be creative with all this beautiful stuff around.

If you get a chance be sure to stop by Falkner University and do a little holiday shopping. I am really excited and can't wait to see what some of our local fiber artists have created. The market is November 11 and 12th from 10:00am until 6:00pm in the J.L. Perry Bldg. NO admission or parking fees.

About Me

My photo
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!!
