Finally, a quality shop where you can ask, find and purchase what you set out for. I finally took my first bead workshop highly recommended by my girlfriend - definately the place to take a workshop, super friendly and knowledgeable instructors. I absolutely love this shop and am currently planning on which workshops I'm taking next.

I travel all the way from Miami (over 70 miles) for this bead store because it isn't just a bead store for me it is an escape from reality. While you are there it is just about the beading. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. I have been to bead stores in Miami and Broward and they don't hold a candle to this place. The classes are fantastic and they also offer support afterwards to help you finish your projects. They have the largest variety of beading materials and then some, no other store compares, I know because I've been to all the others. You do have to put your purse in a locker, which is great, because it leaves both hands free for better shopping. I love this place, just wish they were closer to me.

Just spent over $500 in the store. The women spent the whole time gossiping = bad energy. Got home and looked up some of the pieces we bought. We found them online for a lot less. For example paid $75 for a SS toggle clasp and found it online for $25. That is a 200 percent mark up at a store that claims to be wholesale! They followed us around like we may shop lift and we believe it was all based on the way we looked. Again not good, BIG mistake BIG. Don't judge by the way someone looks. You lost a lot of $ on future sales with us. We asked about business discounts they said their prices were already discounted for business. REALLY when you mark it up 200% above retail online. NOT. Get real ladies! And for all bead lovers. Shop elsewhere for better prices and better spiritual energy. Peace

Business Response:

Thank you for shopping at Crystal Creations. I am a little surprised by all of the remarks in the review. We have been in business since 1990 and really have taken as many steps as possible to keep our prices low and affordable. I know that sometimes things on line look the same, however many times I have found there were major differences. However I can't say that it doesn't happen. I buy products from all over the work and from hundreds of different vendors. Is it possible that I bought something and it had been already passed thru many hands and the price was higher than could have been had I bought it direct. It could happen. I do know though that we are very conscious of keeping prices competitive, as well and knowing what we have to do to keep the doors open. pay the rent, and employees. I am sorry you had a bad experience and wished that you had been able to talk to me so I could amend any of the problems. We are a local business and I like to be able to deal with any issues that arise personally.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write. Many times people only write bad experiences so It is great to hear some of the good ones.

THE ABSOLUTE BEST bead store I have ever been to. I travel a lot and always try to visit the local bead stores when I do. This store has just about anything you could want that relates to beading and outranks any store I have been to. The staff is VERY knowledgeable and friendly and seem to all have a great knack with helping you choose colors and materials. Even when they are very busy, someone will take the time to answer your questions. I have taken several of their classes (they have over 100!) as well as the classes of nationally and internationally know bead instructors which they bring in throughout the year. I've met many great people while taking these classes.

I don't mind locking up my purse in the lockers provided in the store and don't see why any honest person would; unfortunately shoplifting is alive and well in America.

I didn't have a good experience with the sale person. She was an hurry and her only goal was to sell. As soon as she saw me she took me to the locker and I was told to put my purse there.. We are all treat like thief! Sorry, but that the way I feel. The prices are higher than most of the other beads stores.

Sorry you didn't have a good experience. We have had the lockers for purses for years now. We ask everyone to put their purse there while shopping. It is safe and secure and most people love the convenience of it. There are a few, who like yourself, don't understand or feel uncomfortable about it. Hopefully the store and all that it has to offer can over come that little annoyance.

I am an intermediate to advanced beader so a class's value is a new look at something. I just took two classes and walked away with new ideas. Besides, spending $45 for a day's fun is CHEAP! Would cost me a lot more than that at a bar and here I have something to show for my good time. My husband spent $70 for fishing while I was beading and he came home empty handed.

My local classes are geared to beginners and finishing a project. Crystal Creations makes you grow as a beader. A really good thing.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write about your experience. We love creating new beading classes and sharing them with our customers. It is a fantastic hobby that can also be useful and make money too. We have alot of people that have started careers making and selling their jewelry. Have fun.. hope to see you again soon.

Even though the store has expanded I felt they charged way to much for their classes in addition to their "pricey kits". Other stores and beaders offer free classes and you can pick and choose your own design! The staff was helpful but I did not like having to lock up my purse while I was shopping!!!

If you look closer in the WPB Area Hello Beader L, We really feel that we provide extra value in all of our classes, including life time tech support, which means if you ever have any problems or questions you can re-take the class for free. Our 2/1/5 hour intro class, as you noted, has no time for design because we use most of the time to teach all the fundamentals of beading. However we make kits available in all price ranges, and the kits are not mandatory. We do have other classes which focus on your own creative design, and kits are not required either. It is our intention to create exceptional beaders. Please feel free to address any concerns you may have. Glenda

This local beadstore has just recently expanded to better serve local beaders and jewelry craftspeople. They have a wide selection of beading supplies. They also provide an eclectic array of classes, not just for advanced jewelry makers, but beginners as well. The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable, which makes this such a pleasant place to fuel a creative spirit

This is a great shop for jewelry making supplies - a little on the pricey side, but well worth it if you want to shop locally. Nice selection of tools and sundries - great parking in large shopping center.
