This 27 Year Bead Collaboration
.......well really a Bead Addiction.
is brought to You By Rick of Collective Collage
Myself, Rick sold my first beaded jewelry on the Umass Amherst College Campus in 1983 and I have not looked back since.
After leaving UMass in 1989 holding a Computer Engineering Degree I started a full time retail and wholesale clothing, jewelry and bead business. Selling wholesale to stores and working the shows and flea markets all over New England and the upstate New York areas. I also have a love for small antiques and collectibles and cannot drive by a antique shop while out on the road.
Now entering my 27th year it only gets better. For me it is the hunt for the new, unique, and different. I still get a charge when finding something I had not seen before.
I also take care of the The Down The Street Bead Show along with Audrey
My collection of Gemstone Beads, Streling Silver, Antique, and Vintage Beads can be seen in person at all of
The Down The Street Bead Shows
Show in Florida, Atlanta, North & South Carolina
