          It really was a lot of fun and I'm psyched about how it came out! They have about a billion different types of beads, so whatever you are looking for you can find. And the girls in the shop were SUPER helpful. I didn't choose the most affordable beads, but considering I was looking at a few hundred dollars in jewelry, I was really happy with the cost. This place is a real find!

              What a great idea! We have a similar store in Indianapolis. My god-daughter made bracelets for Christmas 2006. But, I never thought of going there for bridal jewelry. THANKS!

                Oh, I went thru a jewelry making phase and spent SO much money in that store! I loved it! I stopped doing that when I moved in with Matt cuz there wasn't enough space. I need to get that stuff back out, thanks for the reminder! And they turned out great!!

                My grandmother (who is very fashionable for a grandma) makes her own beaded jewelry. She even makes the actual glass beads too! I got a necklace from her at xmas and I love it sooo much. I could get into this type of thing, making my own jewelry. Just need to find a local store.

                It looks great Jenn! I can't wait to see your bridal outfit, gown, accessories and all!

                    My mom makes jewelry like that. She is going to get me a crystal starfish or seashell for my necklace. I can't wait!
                    The pics you posted looked perfect for a DW wedding.
