Introducing the ESST Street Team: Black Star Beads

This is the next in my series about the wonderful peeps of Team ESST! Here's introducing Black Star Beads.

With 1323 sales as of the time I am writing (there's likely more by now) with 100% positive, BlackStar is a power seller for sure! You can see why when you visit her shop. She's got sensible categories that encompass both bead type (such as vintage metal, vintage glass, etc.) and shapes (Flowers and leaves). Plus, she has a superb feature for the person who only needs one or two beads, for example, to make earrings. Black Star sells pairs of certain beads; you can find all her pairs in a single section. My favorites are the brilliant Japanese beads here--the cobalt and the shaping are lovely! (As a lampworker, I have to point out the bead poop in there, too, which is one hallmark of mass-produced glasswork.)

There are beads of all sorts -- aluminum, plastic, Lucite, metal, glass -- and a broad color range. With the choices Black Star gives you you are sure to find something in this wonderful shop.
