If you're the friend or family member famous for giving gifts that garner oohs and aahs, go to On A String Beadshop the next time you're in search of something special for the ladies in your life. Plop down on one of the shop's stools with a pile of beads and jewels to string up a pair of pretty and original earrings for your sister, or wrap up one of co-owner Christine White's custom daisy- or peacock- inspired necklaces for your stylish mom. You can present the inspired piece you pick out or whip up with pride, knowing it's the only one of its kind.
