Christmas is almost here!

It has been a strange few weeks for me. Lost loved ones and friends have been the norm for some reason this year. I've been in and out of the shop the last two weeks and am sorry when I've missed folks.

Remember, we have gift certificates available for those that don't know what to get their beading friend/family member. Also, there is a small trunk show with some fab beads just in as well as a new selection of beads in stock. When possible I've been busy trying some of the patterns in the newest magazines.

The shop will be closing on Thursday for Christmas and reopen on the following Tuesday. Shop now for those last minute beads and gifts.

Merry Christmas,

December Shopping


Just received a shipment of beautiful semi-precious stones as well as some 8mm Thunderpolish Crystal. This is just for a short time so come in soon. The selection is small but varied and many I haven't seen before.

Come in soon,

December - Holiday Rush Month

Just in this week: The Beaders Handbook from Bead and Button

There are some great patterns in this special issue. I completed a bracelet one this afternoon. The handbook comes out once a year and has great articles as well as the patterns.

Also in now is the Winter issue of Stringing. As always, there are some great inspiration pieces throughout the book.

The trunk shows are gone now, but something new may be in soon. Watch for an update!

Happy Beading

About Me

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!!
