I found most of their selection was not the highest quality or in the best shape. All the strands of gems I picked out had broken or chipped pieces on them. Their silver and vermeil selection is very limited and pre-packaged, so you may have to pay for more than you need. They carry a good selection of chain and crystals, but their charms, pendants and lampwork are the same quality you can get at Michael's. The owner, Naomi, is very nice and helpful. Unfortunately, she is usually busy and it takes a while when you want to see the better quality items kept behind the counter. She admitted that most of their stock comes straight from China, so if you're looking for original pieces or individuality, look elsewhere.

This has got to be the best bead store I've ever been in...and I am a serious bead shopper who does a lot of traveling! They carry a fantastic selection of stones, glass, crystals, pearls, metals, findings, tools and a bunch of other fun stuff you didn't know you needed until you see it here. The quality is exceptional and they have something for every price range. The owners have very eclectic tastes, so you'll see interesting beads from all over the world. The staff is friendly and they know their stuff. They will help you design your piece if you ask and then teach you if you need a little instruction.The classes are fun and a great way to meet other beaders and get new ideas. They also sell finished jewelry which can give you a lot of inspiration and motivation. I highly recommend this place! Be sure you have a lot of time because you'll want to see everything!!
