My Aunt Carmen is a wonderfully creative bead artist that opened her store in 2005, starting out in the front of her mother's flower shop (yep, Flowers on Main where I ordered several fashion show flower arrangements long before knowing my future Aunt!).
Now she's in the most perfect space. Very quaint, with selection you'd find in a much larger city. She offers several classes, and is a great teacher. I'm not the most patient student but she's taugh me several stich techniques. She's up on the latest jewelry trends and does great work for weddings and special occasions. If you're in the area, check it out! Besides beads, she sells her beautiful finished jewelry.
