I'm not a beader (is that a word) but I occasionally need some sort of jewelry related item and this place always has what I'm seeking. Today I wanted a new leather rope necklace on which to hang a pendant. They had tons on the rack, but not one in black, in the length I wanted. The owner made me one, on the spot, to my specifications, with the type of metal clasp of my choice (from what she had in her stash). Super friendly and helpful. Looking around the place as she worked her magic, it's a bead wonderland. So many beautiful items to choose from! Great place.
