DesignsbyHjordis' Shop Announcement

I owned a bead shop called The Bead Tree on 9th Street in Durham NC. I started my official bead collecting then. But, my obsession began with my baby bracelet from the hospital, don't you just love those glass alphabet beads? I have been collecting since I was a wee one. I have created an incredible family of beads. I do not have plastic or man-made beads in my collection. Each bead is from the Earth or the Sea. I feel like each bead has a story to tell and each of my handmade jewelry pieces feature some of my most beautiful beads. Each bead has a story and as a group, there are many tales to be told.
