It all started when Claiborne spent a cold, windy, rainy “girls' weekend” in the mountains of Virginia. Skiing being out, she and her girlfriends ventured into town and happened upon the local bead shop. And the rest, as they say, is history! Her newfound hobby quickly became an obsession, and suddenly the dining room table became bead central! She soon found herself with more necklaces than her neck could handle, and began to wonder what to do with all those beads. Thus, Fandangle was born.
Since that weekend in 2003, she has created hundreds of unique styles, using glass, stones, semi-precious gems, silver and more – from sources all over the world. Her customers know that Fandangle always offers a vast array of fun, affordable, stylish jewelry – all handmade right here in the Richmond area and now also at The Cordial Cricket! Here is a sneak peek at some of the Fandangle Jewelry for sale at our store.
