Changed simple top to fashionableAugust 8, 2013
"This all started on a whim. I had purchased a dress and the way it draped on the side, it looked like it needed a brooch or something. I decided to look at crystals and found Artbeads. That is how the story started. Now there is no end.
I have almost cleaned out my closet and renewed the look of sooooo many tops and dresses. The Swarovski crystals are so beautiful, it is hard to pick the colors. They glisten and shine and the light bounces off of them like much more expensive items the stores have on their clothes. Very rich looking. Haven't found a color yet that I did not like.
At this point I think I have most of them. At first it was difficult judging how many to order so I had to reorder. Nothing wrong with that, as you earned points along the way and get a certificate when you reach certain levels.
Then you watch the ads and coupons and you get more of a discount. This is getting better and better.
The staff is so wonderful and helpful.
I had a necklace of pearls that broke some time ago and decided to attempt to fix them as I had had two other people who own bead shops redo them and each time they came apart and I had to scramble to pick up many, many pearls.
I watched Artbeads instuctional videos and they are wonderful. Due to my necklace having the odd closing on the bottom, I messed up and ended up with more string left over than necessary. What do you do? Call Artbeads. I talked to Norma and she understood what I was attempting to explain and gave me step by step instructions on how to go about securing the pearls that where not the usual strand of pearls with a clasp in the back.
She gave me a great deal of time and was so helpful. It was unbelievable.
I would not shop anywhere else but Artbeads and you know you are getting Swarovski crystals when you order from them. Not some knock off.
You never know until you try. Dress up one item and I guarantee you will be hooked."
