Bead Heaven...

 Gorgeous Beads in Spicy Orange, Coral, Burnt Orange...and on and on

The Potomac Bead Company is one of my favorite places to visit 
while on vacation in Ocean City, New Jersey.

Be prepared to be "wowed" when you walk in the door !
This is pure "eye candy" at every level. ;)

Have you ever wished for rain while at the beach ??

(I'll let you in on a secret...I pray for at least one rainy day, 
so that I can spend it getting lost in this store ;)

Mother of Pearl

My "wish list" grows with every few steps I take...

All of the walls are dripping with semi-precious stones, 
glass beads, crystals and more...

Every conceivable bead has a home here.
wood - bone - ivory

The front of the store is all glass.
The light floods this store and illuminates the beads.

~~ (Someone pinch me, I must be in a dream. lol) ~~

Beautiful Swarovski Crystals in all sizes...

After looking at glorious colors for some time,
my eyes rested on this wall of pearly pale shades.
champagne - nude - beige - cream

Resting, calming neutrals.

Pure Bead Nirvana ;)

Now, what to do with my new stash of beads ?
Out comes the needle and thread...
time to embellish !

Creatively stitching...


  1. Hello there,
    I just found you & love your blog! I saw Ocean City and started to get excited - other Ocean City. I am on the other side of the nation:( It looks just heavenly.

  2. I love going into stores like that,but I tend to get overwhelmed with all the possibilities of what I could do with it all! Haha I go in with one project in mind and leave with 100 more I want to do.

  3. I love going to those places too. It is so easy to go crazy too. I can't wait to see what you will do with your beads I am sure it will be just breath taking.

  4. OMG! The brown ones in the first pic look like a necklace made of Milk Duds!!! Yum! lol! That store is filled with some serious temptations... I think I like the swarovski and the pearly neutral sections the best!

  5. Oh my....how pretty. Can't wait to see what you do with them all.


  6. How cool.
    Ive never been inside but I have seen the stores.
    Woolie Hugs


So glad to have you here visiting...
would love to hear your thoughts !
