Black and white jewelry is my favorite! Easy to work with because they are easy to match and goes with anything! Love it! I found most of these beads and Joann Fabrics. The big store in Orenco Station has a great selection. However, my sis just found this little store in St. John's, Portland. The store is run out of an old Victorian house, wall to wall beads. We spent hours there and still haven't seen everything. My favorite beads were the mood beads. They change color with heat. SO beautiful! I'll have to post a picture of those beads next time!
