Bead Street Opening Date

For those of you who read this blog on a regular basis and are just dying to get your hands on some seed beads, or see some of the new beads, or even just touch the samples of  Bead Street's great classes coming soon, Saturday, August 24th is the day.  

Many people have been working night and day (literally) to get this accomplished - we are not there yet and the Grand Re-opening will be held later.  But we do have the Czech glass wall up, the Pearl and Semi-Precious wall is organized (mostly) and all of our seed beads are out.  You can see 11/0's, 8/0's, 6/0's, and 15/0's in the seed beads. There are cubes in 1.5mm, 1.8mm, 3mm and 4mm sizes.   Peanuts, Twins, Tilas, and of course the Czechmate Two-hole Lentils, Tiles, Daggers, Super Duos, and Bricks  will be available as well as the regular Lentils, and Drops, and Bugles.  The Hex beads in size 11, 8 and 15's are tubed and available and even some Triangle seed beads (I think size 11's).

Gosh.  This seems like a lot and we still have so many other boxes to  price and organize (including the new Rullas, Rizos,  8mm Rose Petals and new colors of Bricks and Two-hole Lentils). Okay, now I am really, really tired just reading this.

Here are photos of some of the class samples you can see.  I am still waiting for project samples from some of our instructors before I can post the entire schedule but from what I've heard and seen so far - it's going to be so much fun.

This beautiful wire bracelet created by Beth.
 She is one of our new instructors and will be teaching
something very similar.

Wire wrap samples and Metal Etching projects.

And all of the Czechmate Super Duo projects that you have seen on this blog over the last year.

Our new building is located at 5509 Glenwood, just north of Shorty's - not quite across from the Hawks Stadium.  Open this Saturday, August 24th from 11:30 to 5:00, and then closed until Wednesday, August 28th.  We will be open  4 days a week (Wednesday thru Saturday)  until we get everything arranged and return from a couple of buying trips.  

Hope to see you soon.  And, if you have been beading - would love to see your projects as well.
