Hi beautiful bead lovers,

Happy wet Wednesday!  We hope your week is going well.  We are getting drenched here on California's Central Coast.  Much needed rain, but we are keeping our thoughts and prayers with those in the burn areas who have had to evacuate yet again. We are busy preparing for Melody's visit this coming weekend.  Be sure and sign up for one of her six classes, you won't be disappointed!

There is a lot going on in the store; we have not one, but two! trunk shows.  The first of which is beautiful Czech pressed glass from Nirvana Beads, and the other is natural stone, sea glass, pearls, pewter and more from Cherry Tree Beads.  We have a large selection of large hole pearls and gemstones for all of your leather needs!  Both of the trunk shows will be here through April 10, so come on down and get while the getting is good!

We are also looking forward to wire artist, author and fabulous teacher Melody MacDuffee's return to our little bead store on March 23 through March 25.  We will be offering two wire classes per day, for a total of 6 classes.  Melody will be here autographing books, teaching, and have with her her trunk show of beautiful African beads and jewelry that artisans of her non-profit foundation Soul of Somanya have created.  Please do pop in and say hi or register to take one of her classes.

The store will be closed April 1, 2018 in observance of Easter Sunday.  So come on in and get your beady goodies before then.

We appreciate your patience as we have been having trouble with the website, and now seem to have gotten somewhat of a handle on it.  It continues to be a work in progress, so if there is anything we can do for you please do not hesitate to give us a call: 805.686.8804.

Check out our Calendar and be sure to let us know if there is something specific you would like to learn.  We would love to see how we can meet your needs =)

Grab Bags are available for $3.00 through $20.00.  These are stuffed with wonderful goodies and are half off retail value!  We also offer a drop-in Make and Take Class for $10.00, which includes a bracelet or necklace kit and up to 10 letter beads. This is a perfect little project if you're passing through with little ones or just want to get those creative juices flowing!


Please feel free to contact the store 805.686.8804 with any questions, and we will be happy to answer your inquiries and assist you however we can. Thank you so much for your business.  We truly appreciate it!
