Best Place to Make Your Own Jewelry (2012)
Few things are as much fun as making your own jewelry, and Leanna Lin's Wonderland is beading central for grown-ups and little ones alike. Owner Leanna Lin has stocked an impressive array of new and vintage beads, ranging from sophisticated mid–20th century styles to hyper-cute modern doodads. Beading workshops are available for individuals and groups during business hours, and prices vary based on the project. This shop, however, isn't just about making your own wearable art. Lin sells her own work as well and stocks a bevy of jewelry from independent designers, spotlighting up-and-coming artists in the store's "Art Corner" and frequently hosting gallery-style shows. Take a gander at the collection of vintage home decor, fun T-shirts and quirky stationery while you're there. 5024 Eagle Rock Blvd., Eagle Rock. (323) 550-1332, leannalinswonderland.com.
