A long-time islander is back in business. Artist Sallie Bell has reopened Monkey Puzzle with a new focus: beads. They are from her collection that she's been adding to since 1980.

“It's a reflection of the times: I need to reinvent myself and have something that is more compatible for our economy,” Bell said.

Bell creates jewelry and clothing for her one-woman business, Sallie Bell Designs. Her new store, located across from Mia's in Eastsound, features her work as well as a wide variety of beads. She is holding her annual Christmas show on Dec. 2, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
