Your Patience Please

~I'm trying to move a bead mountain.

 “Patience is not the ability to wait for beads, 

but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.”

As you know, our physical bead store is closed to the public during the Corona Crisis. 

Please bear with me during our growing pains. Building the online store is a work in progress. There are so many more items coming your way! 

Thank you for your patience & understanding everyone.   ~Andrea
