Happy Holidays & Bead Merry!

Sydney & Lydia get into the holiday spirit by wrapping some boxes for decoration!

Fall & Winter are a couple of Blue Door Beads’ favorite seasons. Not only is the weather crisp enough for us to break out our chunky sweaters & scarves, but new customers are coming into the shop, excited to get started making their holiday gifts!

Of course, we’re always happy to help anyone who would like assistance in making jewelry, but we especially enjoy the enthusiasm that newbies bring to the shop. They come in with a mix of emotions — glee, anxiety, excitement — and we explain that it’s all part of starting out on a beading adventure when you’ve never done it before! We show them all of the beginner-friendly projects and kits we have, make sure that they’ve given themselves enough time to get lost in the creative process — and before they know it, they’ve dived deep into the world of beads, and their lives have been changed forever! (We assure them that this isn’t a bad thing. :-))

Very often, people who are new to the shop this time of your are actually not jewelry-makers themselves, but are rather shopping for gifts for the beader(s) in their life. We have lots of goodies for them, too: pre-made chainmail kits, snowflake forms for making holiday decorations (a great stocking-stuffer!) and tool kits for every level of beader, no matter what kind of jewelry they enjoy making.

Check out the holiday gift ideas below, and then swing by the shop soon to get everything you need for a very sparkly holiday season! Bead Merry!
