Beadazzled is a good place for people who make an occasional piece of jewelry or who need help getting started. It's also wonderful for unique finished jewelry and other gift items from all over the world. Their book and magazine selection is excellent, as are their findings. Prices tend to be on the high side which doesn't matter much if you just do a few things now and then but you will do better with the big mail order places if you get into this bigtime. The help is mostly patient and friendly but can be a bit short during busy times. Metered parking on the street.
