I love beads. I brought some favorites with me to Israel. And after living here for six months (as of this week!!) I finally made it to a bead shop with bead artist, Shokouh. I don't know the name of the shop (biz card is in Hebrew), but he is on Allenby Street, and about to move in the direction of Akká. The owner has great taste in beads and supplies and is outfitted as well as any shop in the States.
