AREA BEAD COMPANY SCHEDULING PARTIES

High-Strung, a Severna Park-based bead company, is scheduling home parties for the holiday season. One of the few companies in the area to sell beads, High Strung offers thousands of different beads from all over the world, including those made of wood, ceramic, metal, glass and semi-precious stones.

Party guests can select beads and findings to make necklaces, pins, brooches, hatpins and bracelets. Dina Weavers, the party leader and owner of High Strung, has been in the retail jewelry business for 15 years. She studied gemology with the Gemological Institute of America in California and is a member of the Washington Bead Society.

A home party hostess receives champagne for her guests, a hostess gift and 10 percent of her guests' sales toward her own purchase. Jewelry can be made from $3 to $300. Guests may also bring their own beads to restring for a modest supplies charge or have pearls and semi-precious taken for reknotting and restringing.

The parties can be adapted for special occasions for children, 6 years and up. From $10 includes bead kits and supervision to make the jewelry.
