About Kandra

Yarn And Beads Grover Beach 048

I’ve always loved working with my hands.  Whether cooking or beading, making things gives me great satisfaction.
My business and artistic experiences have taught me that I love learning, that I need challenges, and that I must speak in my own voice.
I’ve explored a number of mediums including seed beadwork, gourd arts, lampworking and kiln glass making, basket weaving, quilting, felting, metal clay, enameling, doll making, photography, wire work, embroidery, weaving and even polymer clay.
My work is strongly informed by my love of color in both natural and manmade worlds: of shapes, especially the spiral and gingko leaf.
Creative expression for me is about play.  When I’m working with my hands in any medium, the children inside me get to come out in the sun.  In this way, I nurture myself and find my peaceful place in the world.


Settling in with the new store!

Well Julia and I are finally starting to settle in with the new store.  We have rearranged the store a few times now just to confuse everyone and even ourselves, well more me when Julia moves the yarn!

We have added a lot of new yarn and a lot of new beads, someone please hide my phone so I can’t order anything for a while! Of course Julia is just as sick as me when it comes to ordering items, ok we are both sick!  Ha-ha

If you haven’t been in the store for a while you really need to come in and check out all of the new items.

I have also been adding a lot of new items to the website and it is up and running!  If you are out of town just click on the shop link at the top of the page and see what I have added, if you don’t see an item call us and we can mail it to you, I try to add new items at least every other day.  We have a lot of items in the store so be patient with me will I try to get all of the items photographed, cropped and put on the website.

Thank you, Kandra and Julia

On-Line Store Up and Running!

I tried to resist having an on-line store but I have finally given in!  I will be adding beads and yarns to the website every week, I have thousands of pictures to take and then put them on the website.  This will be an on going process for many months until I finally have all the pictures taken and posted, so for right now please start checking out what is for sale and have fun shopping, remember call us if you need a product that is not on the website and if I can get it I will gladly order this for you.  At the top of our website you will see a link that says “Shop” click this and it will take you to our on-line store.

My newest beads are the 11/0 Demi and 8/0 Demi beads, these are a Toho bead that is half the height of a regular bead and are a sweet, sweet bead!  We have a pattern we can give you when you buy the beads to get you started with this shape.  Here is a picture of the beaded bracelet isn’t it sweet!


Our Vintage Trunk show was a wonderful event and we were over flowing in the store with people and beads!  Thank you Dara for bringing up all of your wonderful beads!

Stayed tuned because we have a lot of new yarns and beads coming in and I will get them posted as soon as I can.

Thank you, Kandra and Julia
