Texas-sized

Okay, okay, so Texas does it bigger and better than everywhere else.  I submit this as true after spending the day at two Dallas beady locations yesterday.

If you're ever in the area, do yourself a favor (and your wallet) and visit Bead on Beads, then the Rock Barrel.


Photos from Bead on Beads website: doesn't even begin to give you the complete experience of overwhelming beady goodness!  

So many beads, all at wholesale prices.  (Read: cheap)  Very high quality.  I admit, I was worried that the wholesale nature would compromise the quality.  Not the case.  The gemstones were stellar.  The chinese crystal very even and great color/sparkle.

I'll definitely be using their online shopping cart when I return to Michigan.  Who knows, if the bank account allows, I may even need to make another trip to the store before I leave Dallas this weekend.  :)

After all,

    1. The selection was unbelievable! We visited another store later in the week, where gemstones were 75% off. And the quality was exceptional. Today, I'm spending the whole day sorting beads, recovering from that 18 hour drive back home. Whew.

  3. Why is it that, when I lived in Dallas, I wasn't making jewelry? And now, of course, when they're 800 miles away, there are some really mouth-watering shopping options that are probably 30 minutes from my old house...

    Karma? Or the universe protecting my budget? In any event, I appreciate your letting us share your fun vicariously!

    1. Self-preservation, Bobbie - sometimes it's a good thing. :) I visited only two wholesale shops and went way over my budget. If I lived in Dallas, I'd be in big trouble!
