While on my trip to Florida and South Carolina, I visted as many bead shops as I could find. I used to live in Gainesville, Florida so I already knew of Gifts Of Avalon. I love their selection of pendants and gemstones. Just like in all bead shops, if you look for the right beads, you will definetly find affordable, beautiful things to add to a peice of jewelry to truly make it special.
After gathering beads in Gainesville we then went to visit my best friend Tessa near Hilton Head South Carolina. I helped her set up her own shop on Etsy and Artfire while I was there. You can see her things at www.bellacreation.etsy.com
Tessa and I went to a bead shop (I can't remember the name now) and found lots of goodies to add to my collection from Gainesville. Then we spent a lot of our time beading. It was a really nice visit as well as productive. Gotta love that!!
So, now I have some beautiful new jewelry to add to my site - but not until I take some more fabulous pictures of Cassie wearing them!! I love having a model and think she's truly a beautiful reflection of what Gypsy Jewels represents.
I hope you all had a fabulous holiday - however/whatever you celebrate.
