Highstrung Beads 2012

Well, a new year is started and we are entering our 10th year of business. I've lots of plans for different classes this year. One of the most exciting is a possible Silver-smithing class later this spring. When I have more information it will be posted and email sent out to my list.

I am also getting planning to offer a wire wrapping class soon. People keep asking so I will try. The classes will be small and I may need to do more than one if I get a lot of interest. It will be base metals; copper, brass. This is a beginner class.
Watch for information on signup.

There a a number of new items in the shop including metal beads and findings, large hoop earrings and more pearls and other beads.

Watch the blog for updates, shop hours and new items.

Hope to see you all this new year!

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!!
