I love this place! It has quickly become my favorite place to go! They have such beautiful things like stone beads, seed beads, gems/stones, charms, jewelry, dreamcatchers, and so much more that pulls you in and makes you want to wonder the whole store looking at everything. Karla is awesome and is always a joy to see! She gave me tips on how to make my bracelets better when i told her I was new at making them! πŸ™πŸ» She has amazing customer service! She makes me smile everytime I see her! I definitely recommend this place to others! 😁🀍

The owner personally worked with me over several sessions to make sure I received the custom work exactly as I wanted it. In addition the price was so low I felt bad and had to tip her. Will not hesitate to go back.

My rudraksha beads, which are my prayer beads, broke and I needed a new set of beads. Carla helped me find something really inexpensive but still nice. I'm looking forward to beading and chanting mantra :). Thank you. πŸ™πŸ½

The owner restrung a couple of necklaces for me and made earrings from the extra beads for one of them. She does accurate fine detail work and is very pleasant to work with. Her work is beautifully designed and well made.

You can find some high end beads here or if you are looking for something highly specific. I found blue "gold stone" and moonstone beads here. The only drawback is you must by beads by the strands however the strands are highly generous in how many beads are on the string. They have a wonderful little collection of one of a kind beads, from glass blown to metal to raw rocks. A great place to get inspiration for your next project!

This place is AWESOME And the lady that owns it is sooooo very nice and helpful! I went there to get my wish order and ended up staying there for about a hour in a half looking at all the stuff she has! Beads,rocks, necklaces,etc... So much stuff I definitely will go back,also she offers beading class which I'm interested in taking! I recommend this place to everyone that loves beads,rocks and nickknacks.. You won't be disappointed!

A great little bead store! Lots of beads, tools, findings etc to make your own jewelry. There are also many unique pendants and things to use as a centerpiece for your creations. I've been shopping here for years. The owner, Carla is a delight and is a great instructor! πŸ‘
