Walk through history at Vista’s Beads, Crystals and More!

The husband-and-wife team of Phil Fischman and Valerie Okun have curated an amazing display of the beads — the world’s oldest human art form — and earth’s gifts of crystals and gems.  The result of their love and hard work is not just an amazing shop, but a tour through history, art and culture from civilizations all over the world.

Beads, Crystals and More operated in Encinitas for more than two decades.  The couple moved the store to Vista in 2020 and have been loving it here ever since.

Check out the video to hear more of the story from Phil!
