I started selling and dreaming of my own bead store while on a Grateful Dead tour in the 90's. Over the following 16 years I saved up until I was able to move to Hood River and finally was able to fulfill my dream. Sparkling Creations has evolved into something so much more than I had ever imagined.
Without Love in the Dream, It Will Never Come True!
We have been in the Gorge since 2006. In August '08, we made the move onto Oak Street and couldn't be happier with our sunny location.
You never know what to expect when you walk into the store. It could be an interactive day, a private lesson, a big month long sale, a creative jewelry making session, or our weekly Fun Freaky Fairy Friday Party. We all love working here and spreading our positive energy with our customers and all around town. We love to meet travelers from all over the world and learn about their adventures.
Our little bead store is like walking into a ray of sunshine. All the beads are arranged in clear displays and fun candy dishes dispersed throughout the store. Gemstone and glass strands are lined up like the colors of the rainbow, making it easy to find just the shade you need. There are over a hundred different colors of Swarovski crystals as well as gemstone center pieces and pendants in every hue.
All the natural light from the front windows and the array of glass shelves really lets our gemstones sparkle. Whether you are looking for a pocket stone to carry with you on a daily basis or a new specimen for your crystal altar, we are sure to have what you are looking for.
