Bead Boutique

I spent such a fun, girly 1/2 hour yesterday at Bead Boutique that I wanted to share it with you.

Bead Boutique is a lovely, well curated bead store located in the West Hollywood section of Los Angeles.  The store carries beads from all over the world as well as a great selection of charms, chains, ropes, leather bands, and all variety of fasteners.  They also feature a good selection of jewelry making tools.  


It's such a nice place to spend some time with your daughter or some friends.  And, you get to play! Spread your choices out on the table and try out  all kinds of combinations until you have created the perfect piece. You can sit in the cozy corner, above, and put together an entire bracelet or necklace or simply pick what you want and let the friendly, talented staff finish it for you.

Last time I was in I made this turquoise, wood and silver bead necklace

 
but yesterday I went to choose something from the collection of finished jewelry they carry.


I am in love with these Swarovski crystal bands





I got 2 narrow ones, a black and a light blue.  But I have my eye on the wide white one, or maybe the wide black...

Bead Boutique is located down the street from Toast and across from Joan's on Third, both great places to have lunch.  The new Magnolia Bakery is a few blocks west.  Nearby are Sigerson Morrison, Ethel, and several other cute boutiques (if you're in the mood for some more expensive shopping.)  But, for well under $100 you can give yourself a treat - have lunch with some women you love, then go and make something pretty at Bead Boutique.
