This store houses a hand picked collection of unique uncirculated vintage beads and findings that were manufactured between 1920's-1980's. The selection is forever changing but the quality of beads remain the same. Most of the vintage lucite that I carry was at one time custom made for Monet, Vivendi and other high end designers back in the 1980's. I buy directly from the manufacturer's overstock so you will rarely see these beads anywhere else. I carry beads from all over the world. Japan, Africa, Philippines, Thailand and West Germany to name a few. I will always choose quality over quantity which means that I will have a limited quantity available in some of the beads that I offer.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to convo me at anytime. I am on site throughout the day.

About

Enjoying The Journey

Life has taken me down many roads. I started out like many artist do, experimenting with creativity through different mediums. I dabbled in many other art forms such as stained glass, painting, writing and singing. I always ended up gravitating towards jewelry design. Maybe it's the Magpie in me, or maybe it's just my "true north".

I am a self taught artist. My designs have been featured in Arts On Liberty art gallery in NC. as well as local boutiques. My bead shop has been featured in many major beading magazines over the years.

I believe in giving back to the community. I teach jewelry design to local teenagers. I believe that creativity is as essential to life as taking in nourishment. It needs to be shared and passed on. I love watching that first spark in a new designer's eye. That first flame of passion for the craft. It's a beautiful thing to behold!

If you asked me 10 years ago what I would be doing today, I would have never have said owning a business, doing something I am passionate about and getting paid for it! I am truly blessed! I love that we don't get to see the whole picture of where we are going in life, but, only glimpses of the path that we are currently on.

Oh, the kid in the picture? He's mine. Amazingly and wonderfully mine. He's the reason behind all of this!
