It's Spring?

I think so, as the azaleas and other spring flowers and trees are blooming now. Our winter was so mild this year that maybe Spring is here. I've enjoyed most of it except the sneezing from all the tree pollen. I'm planning a few things over the next couple of months. There will be a new seed bead trunk show arriving the last weekend of March. Beadweavers, (ie: loom, peyote, and other stitches) make a note as there will be new colors in both the Japanese and Italian beads. I am looking forward to seeing the new collection myself. She usually sends 15/o, 11/o, 8/0 and 6/o as well as different shapes.

I am also arranging for a bead trunk show soon. Many of you out there keep asking when is the next one. I will post it out when I have the dates. 

Also, those that are still interested in the silversmithing class and are not signed up need to make their decisions as it is beginning to fill up. I am really excited about this one. I've been wanting to learn how to solder and work with silver. Check it out here if you haven't already:

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!!
