There’s more than beads here, a lot more. The shop’s four rooms are filled to the brim with Bohemian delights and artisanal gifts from all over the world.
Men may like the stone fossils or the braided leather and stone jewelry. Children aged seven and up can celebrate a birthday by inviting friends to make necklaces and bracelets from vintage and contemporary loose beads. Those seeking indulgence may choose from bath bombs by Feeling Smitten or lavender oil by Song of India. There are also Candles by Capri, Voluspa oil diffusers and Swagat incense sticks. Textiles and baskets make perfect home decor statement pieces.
Workshops in beading, jewelry-making and leather braiding are free, beyond materials used. A May 11 outdoor market welcomes 20 local artists and their wares.
The shop is located at 9142 Broadway Ave. in Brookfield (312 952-1339).Edit Module
