...guiding and inspiring your with projects and products

As we gather all our products and “move” to our new website this Spring, I am writing our history for the “About Us” and find I am really taking a walk down Memory Lane. I have wanted to do this and share the history of the old shop and how we grew to become the leader in jewelry making classes at The Bead Shop; how we closed our brick and mortar doors in 2008; and how we re-invented ourselves in 2010 and became who we are today. It’s really quite a story. I can’t wait to share it with you!

And I can’t wait for you to be able to write your comments about your memories with the old shop. I want to move right this minute but things like “platforms” and software updates take time….

We are so close to being finished on our new website. We hope to unveil it very soon. In the meantime, thank you for your patience. I know you have choices with where you shop and that you choose, I am very grateful.

Have a wonderful beginning of Spring. And if you have time, I hope you enjoy Seashore, our newest project. Savanna, Cat, and Colette worked so hard on getting samples completed. I love the results!
