Beads etc. in Elk River is the new place to bead
Gloria Hlebichuk is known as the bead lady.
She’s the owner of a relatively new bead shop appropriately named Beads etc. at 544 Third St., Suite 110 in Elk River (across from Adairs in Stitches).
This is the place to bead.
The Elk River woman, who raised two children while channeling her creative energies into various artistic endeavors, has combined all her resources into a fun new shop.
She has been beading for 20 years and specializes in several areas, including fancy stitched woven designs, wire wrapping and basic metal works, as well as her own design work. In addition to selling her own creations and repairing jewelry, she schedules classes, diva parties, Girl Scout gatherings and whatever else comes her way.
