During my quick trip to MN for the holidays, I was fortunate to visit one of the most talented beady artisans I have ever met, Gail Be. Spent a few hours touring her studio and drooling! ALL of her creations are simply vintage Swarovski and beads, NO fabric. UNBELIEVABLE!
She had the nicest staff and lovely crystal jewelry for sale so if you get to the Twin Cities, be sure to give her a call and set up an appointment to shop!
