Monday, January 21, 2013


I cannot believe it is already January 21st! 2013 is moving right along and we are speeding along too. It's been a busy few first weeks for my family. There are several things coming up this month and next that will require the shop being closed on Saturday.

The following dates Highstrung Beads will be closed:

Saturday, January 26th 

Friday February 1st and Saturday February 2nd.

I will be out of town those days.

If anyone is wanting to get started on Valentine jewelry or gifts, come on in soon. 

Happy Beading.

Happy New Year

Well, 2013 has arrived! I'm sure there will be lots of things happening this year, some we expect and some that come as a total surprise. I look forward to seeing what this new year will bring, hopefully wonderful happy things. I look forward to doing more with my jewelry ideas; learning more metalsmithing techniques at William Holland Lapidary School this summer; and having fun with my husband.

The trunk show was a great way to end the year. We had a lot of great sales and enjoyed having so many colors and sizes of crystal and glass pearls to choose from. Thanks to all of you shoppers that made it in.

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!!
