I like this store, but I can't go back.
I have been in this store twice. And spent a total of approx $450 at this store on three pieces of jewelry that I had made at the store. I did not assemble any of them myself.

I thought the prices were a bit high, but the designs that the staff helped me come up with were great.
Unfortunately, all of these pieces have broken.
One I never wore one piece because it was unable to be untangled when I got home. Many have tried to untangle it. It is a joke. The staff insisted that clasps were not necessary and that the chain was thick enough to prevent the tangling concerns I had at that time. $150 wasted. I called and they said I could pay to have it redone.
The other two lasted less than a month. They completely broke. One due to workmanship again and the other due to faulty "vintage" beads that fall apart.
I am so bummed that this place isn't what I hoped, as I love going in and creating jewelry. I really want to love this place, but buyer beware.
Pros: Great selection.
Cons: Poor quality and overpriced.
