Let Your Creativity Run Wild at Forbeadin'.
I have taken 2 classes at Forbeadin' which have given me the basic tools to make my own jewelry. Three of my girlfriends and I got together for an evening class and had a blast while creating something fabulous to wear. I have even restrung some of my Grandmother's old necklaces and reused some of the broken jewelry and single beads I've been stashing for years. Forebeadin' carries beautiful precious and semi-precious stones--perfect for making one-of-a-kind gifts from the heart. There is also a whole wall of cheaper glass, clay, and other beads for the budget-minded. If you are short on time and creativity there are already made necklaces, earrings and bracelets you won't find anywhere else.
I'm all for mom and pop shops, which this seems to be....however, not only is the selection particularly limited, the prices are off the charts. I've been to every other bead place in San Francisco and compared prices..this place is the highest. Additionally, they offer lots of synthetic semi precious stones priced the same as real semi precious you can get elsewhere.
I would not recommend going here at all. Go to Beadissimo or General Bead
