    The Big Move!!

    We've moved!  We closed the shop March 29-31 for the move, and opened in the new space at 26 East Market Street on April 1!  It was tough, and I was exhausted, but when my family and friends get together, boy do they get things done!!!  I'm so grateful to everyone for the parts they played in the move!!  

    So we're open with even more good things to offer.  I've added living lockets to the stock, and they've been so popular just in the first week!  These lockets are glass, and come in different sizes, shapes, and finishes. You can then add living lockets charms to make it your own - baby's feet, birthstones, inspirational words, and all kinds of charms!  

    Classes are revving up again, with bead weaving, crystal clay, and some mixed media projects. Click on the "classes" link for more information!

    Parties are also booking out quickly.  Check out the Parties link for information on parties of all types (corporate, birthday, girls night out).  Projects have been updated and remember, you can always request your own project.

    Bridal and prom requests are coming in as well.  Stop in to see some examples of jewelry, brooch bouquets, and other accessories custom designed just for you!


    Thanks for all your support.  I"m so grateful to everyone for the part you play in my life! 

    Bead Happy!



    The Colorado Bead Retreat - You'll Never Bead The Same!

    I've just returned from a fantabulous trip to Nederland, Colorado for a bead retreat. Wait...let me rephrase that.  THE bead retreat!!  It was the first Colorado Bead Retreat, and I hope there will be many more. Let me first say it was a smashing success.  The instructors for the workshops offered were....drumroll, please....Sherry Serafini and Heidi Kummli.  Both of them together in the same weekend, the same room, the same time....wow.  

    Betcey Ventrella of Beyond Beadery did a stellar job dreaming up this retreat and putting it together, with Rachel Hungary as her right hand woman.  They truly created a space for us to work, play, and learn while making new friends and rekindling old friendships. 

    I learned some new techniques and made some gorgeous pieces, but best of all, I have been inspired.
