I don’t, and won’t, do this often, but I HAVE to put up a shameless plug for some friends of mine who run Whimsy Beading.
I own several pieces of theirs, and have had a piece commissioned for my mom for Xmas (shhh!) and I have to say, from ordering to shipping to the lovely way they package their items, they are a class act.
That, and the work is stellar. This is not someone throwing beads on some fishing line, this is honest-to-God BEADING, folks, and it ain’t cheap or easy.
That said, they do GORGEOUS work at VERY reasonable prices. Really, check them out. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
