Chris the founder of Foremost Focal Beads is a native of Berea and is looking forward to returning to her old stomping grounds. Take a minute to stop in and say hi. Foremost Focal Beads is unique in that they bring over 30 artists work together in one easy shopping location. Instead of looking at each artist work individually, a beader can come see 30 different artists beads at the show or on the website. Foremost Focal Beads see focal beads for exactly what they are, a little piece of beautiful art. Like all art it should be framed and highlighted so that it stands out from the rest of its embellishments. While we applaud the creativity of those who create jewelry with multiple stitches, wire and other techniques, we want our customers to quickly get the focal bead into the world for all to admire. Since stringing is usually the beader's first introduction into jewelry making and it often uses a focal bead, all of the designs shown on our website are beginner projects.
