Simply Lavender

It is refreshing to see a truly unique bead shop. Here is an artist who has taken her love of lavender and turned it into a thriving business. Let me introduce Andrea of Lavender Beads, an Etsy shop. Whether you are looking for English, Spanish or French lavender, you will find an amazing likeness of it here. There are over 200 varieties of lavender and 28 different species. Do you know a glass collector who would appreciate a truly unusual find? Be sure to see her lavender perfume vials.

Andrea works on a lavender farm, so she is very familiar with the different varieties of lavender. Your individually handcrafted lavender beads will come carefully packaged in dried lavender buds so you can make and aromatic sachet. Andrea also makes jewelry from the lovely beads she creates. If you would like to see some of her creations, please visit her other Etsy shop.

She works on San Juan Island off the coast of Washington state, ships internationally, and can be found on her website. She can take wholesale orders and has a trade friendly shop so if you see something you like, and have a shop of your own, please contact her. Living at the end of the long dirt road, keeping chickens and honeybees, sure sounds like a little piece of heaven.
