Hi! I'm from Italy and constantly follow your posts to get the newest info about beading arts. I'll in Miami in the last 2 weeks of November: do you have any reccomendation about bead supplies stores in this area? I do not really know where to go... Thansk for the interest. Sofia

There are two that are nearby that look interesting:

But really, Sofia, I'd go to Murano if I had the choice! :-)
Sofilor said…
oh yes, in fact I live 40 minutes far from Murano... But I'm curious and like to see new materials :-)
Cyndi L said…
Of course! I hope you find lots of nice things when you visit Florida, Sofia. I just want you to know how much I love your gorgeous country :-)
Sofilor said…
Thanks a lot! it's so kind of you! Have you ever been to Italy? :)
Cyndi L said…
Yes! Last spring (2008, that is) my husband and I went to meet up with our daughter who had been studying in Orvieto for 4 month. She was doing stone carving, oils, and all kinds of other wonderful arts. We got to visit Orvieto, Venice, Murano, and Rome. Lucky lucky us! I would go back for another trip in a heartbeat, and visit Florence, Sienna, and Pompeii if I could :-)

Spring is the best period to visit Italy, not too hot, not rain falling, flowers everywhere, sun shining :-)

It was totally magical...the best trip I've *ever* been on.
