Expressive Impressions, Inc. began in 1998 as an outlet for Kim St. Jean's creativity. She would scour the area to find shabby chic clothing, vintage Asian artifacts, estate jewelry, and antiques. She would creatively market these items at various shows around the East Coast. Gradually Kim began using the vintage beads from the estate jewelry to create unique one of a kind pieces of jewelry. Shortly thereafter the passion to bead was born and the rest was left behind. In 2001 husband Norm joined the business after a lengthy career in Textile management, taking over the day to day duties affording Kim time to be creative.
Expressive Impressions is now a nearly 4,000 square foot full service bead store offering Swarovski Crystal Components, Beadalon tools and findings, semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls, and findings of all types in sterling silver, gold filled, copper, brass, and pewter. We have 600 square feet of dedicated classroom space and offer classes from basic bead stringing through PMC, and lamp-working, including all disciplines in between.
Kim and Norm invite you to peruse our site where you can see current trends and designs, as well as the various components and tools required to complete your design. Tammy or Shelly are always available to assist with an order or any questions you may have.
Thanks for visiting us, we look forward to doing business with you. Expressive Impressions, Inc.
