If you create jewelry, you must discover Bead Haven. Carry a bead tray to place individual beads you choose in, and check out the stringed beads also. So much to look at and inspire your creativity!

My favorite bead source. I am a rosary maker and find 95% of my supplies here. The staff is helpful and friendly. I have a discount card that they offer after you spend a certain amount.
