For your convenience, here is some general information about Julie’s Xpressions:

We are located in Hastings Nebraska with more than 3,500 square foot retail store in the historical downtown shopping district.

I would like to introduce myself, Julie Ochsner, owner and self-proclaimed Queen of the Beads at Julie’s Xpressions.  I have a staff of bead lovers who fondly refer to as “my beady girls” (Linda, Rickie, Diane, Gigi, Debbie & Lorinda). Also, on staff is Dee our Marketing Manager.  Everyone needs a faithfully friend who is there to help do whatever need to be done.  I am fortunate enough to have two of these wonderful friends, Mary and Di assist me in all my needs.  I got started in the bead business 15 years ago thanks to a bead group that needed a place to meet.  I could provide a place for them at Julie’s Xpressions, little did I know what was about to happen… they needed beads.  I went on a bead buying trip and saw all the eye candy.  I knew I was in trouble.  I just had to have them all.  Voila – Julie’s Xpressions transformed from a needlework shop to a bead store and thus I became the Queen of Beads adding a little (lot) sparkle to my life!

The plan for Julie’s Xpressions is to consistently offer new Seed Beads, Czech Glass, Crystals and Stones as well as adding other beading ‘goodies’. We will continue educating beaders by offering patterns, tutorials and classes.  Please bookmark our site and check back often to see what’s new!
