I am impressed by this do-it-yourself bead boutique. They have a large selection of beads and many examples of clever ways to make jewelry and accessories on your own. Their staff seemed very knowledgeable about beading too. I was particularly thankful for their help in restringing some beaded jewelry I had that needed repair. The price for this was very reasonable… they just charged for parts, not their assistance in fixing it. I understand that if you drop the jewelry off for repair though, they will charge a labor cost. Makes sense to me. I have recently seen some beaded accessories online that I want to try and duplicate at String Beads myself. I bet they will have everything I need to do this.
