Tucked away in a small cottage bungalow on Westwood Blvd is one the sweetest bead stores in town called Sun Light Gems. The store has a huge assortment of glass and semi precious stones at incredibly reasonable prices. The store is jammed packed with hundreds and hundreds of strands of the most beautiful beads. My favorites are all the aquamarine colored glass briolettes in an assortment of shapes and sizes. You will be blown away. Take a look at the earrings I've posted on the blog. The majority of stones were purchased here. There are other bits and bobs scattered through out the store and it never hurts to take a peek at what is laying around.
Parking can be challenging your first time. It's all metered parking, so don't forget to bring change. The meter maids are always lurking and patrolling the area. There is an alley located in the back of the store that you can park. Finding it can be complicated so I strongly suggest just parking on the street your first time.
Sun Light Gems only accepts credit cards and cash. No personal checks.
The store is located at:
1754-1756 Westwood Blvd
