by Tracy Martin aka. nutkitten. (El Centro, CA) Hi Rena and everyone. This necklace I call Lemon Drop. I had the yellow and white nugget beads for quite awhile but couldn't find anything to go with them. Finally I had an idea. I have tons of wood beads (usually used them just when I would macrame). Well, I decided to try and paint them. So that's what I did. I … [Read more...] about Wood Beads
by Didy. (Bungay, Suffolk, UK) It took me a while to summon up the courage to actually make this piece but I was pleased with the result. I named it after a local vineyard and thought it might sell locally. It has been on display in a cabinet in a local store for a while now. Before that I had it on my website. I'm wondering if it just isn't the kind of thing … [Read more...] about Wisset Wines
by Dianne Culbertson. (Waterville, Maine) I fell in love with this large Hill Tribe Poinsettia. I have wanted to do a monochromatic piece in silver for some time now but the materials are so costly. My husband talked me into it, telling me it was time to take my work to the next level. Every time I level up I get a little frightened! Instead of seed … [Read more...] about Winter Frost

by Kim McDowell. (Dillard, GA) I have been making gemstone jewelry, primarily necklaces, for many years. My closest friend recommended long ago that I make longer necklaces. I have finally seen the light! I was inspired to make one when they became a recent fashion trend. I made it 30 inches long with a mixture of gemstones and glass beads. I usually like to … [Read more...] about Why Did I Wait So Long To Make Longer Length Necklaces?
by Kathleen Waltrip. (Carpinteria, California USA) Like many followers here I had a lifestyle change. An injury got me off my feet and I was worried that I couldn't be effective at my job. Out came the beads, I ran out for a business license and hoped that my pieces would sell. It's now been 10 years and sales keep getting better and better. I have a very loyal … [Read more...] about Whole Lotta Pearls!

Spent several hours last night remaking it stitched hoop by stiched hoop to ramp up the pizazz factor. Bold boro lampwork glass beads in a white rainbow leopard motif are Redside Designs. Love their … [Read more...] about White Leopard
by Abigail Robichon. (Johannesburg, South Africa) My original necklace like this one was 45cm long, laying on the collar bone. I shortened it and made it a choker. The beads are foil beads and I used copper wire. These ladies from Morocco requested I added the centre piece. It made the piece look worlds apart.
