About

For the Love of the Beads

The story of my shop is the story of my love affair with vintage and antique jewelry and components. I've been collecting them for decades. I am so happy to be able to share some of the treasures I have found with others!

And then, there are the kits and patterns. I love to bead. I love to share what my beady brain comes up with. I like to buy beads. I come up with bead projects, write instructions, buy beads, put them all together and offer them here.

My first book "Easy Crystal Stitching Sophisticated Jewelry"sx published late last year. It is the culmination of a decade of fascination with seed beads and crystals. And, yes, there's more where that came from. Autographed copies are available in my sholp.

I teach and sell vintage goodies and kits at bead shops, retreats, bead societies and national bead shows. I hope to see you along the way!

Keep the beads alive!

Hey! Thanks for finding me! I hope you'll enjoy your look around. Let me know if you see anything you like.

I am not a wholesaler. I can sometimes sell larger quantities than listed but typically do not sell in lots.

I deal in mostly rare vintage and antique glass, metal, lucite, etc. components and often what I have on hand is all I can get.

I buy intact packages whenever possible and try to show the packaging.

I love antique glass! What I have ranges from pieces made at the turn of the 20th century to pieces made in 70s and 80s. I do have contemporary components as well and note them as such.
