The Classic Bead

Kansas City, Missouri

The Classic Bead is currently operating from my hometown, Kansas City, Missouri where fine architecture and beautiful gardens prevail and where BBQ and Blues are a favorite past time.  There is lots to see and do here should you plan a visit.  These are some of my favorite places.

Are you a bead store and would like to hold a trunk show? 

Are you a designer and wish to use some of my elements in your designs or magazine submissions?
