studio news ~ creative tips ~ design ideas

Welcome to my bead journal & studio news. 

First let me share a little more about myself.  I am a 62 year old bohemian soul ( the mystic peasant ) living the artisan dream.  My business is a home-based online bead shop.


  I create mostly "limited edition" beads, components, jewelry and purchase unique bohemian beads & supplies .  I do some restocking, but in general I am more of a "special finds" kind of bead shop.  So, if you are a "think outside of the box" or a "one-of-a-kind" sort of jewelry designer, I think you will fit right in.

Hello my dear creative friends.  I hope you and your family are well.


I have been house bound for months now due to the COVID-19 virus and have been keeping myself busy creating.  Creating is my only normal right now like many of you.  Please feel free to stop bye and check out the "Studio News" page for inspiration.


If you are like me you have a ton of jewelry making supplies & beads stashed everywhere around the house.  It's a great time to sort it all and find some treasures you have forgotten.  With money tight, it's a great way to use up some of those "lost treasures" and still keep on creating.


I'll post lots of pictures of projects I'm working on and share jewelry ideas.

Happy Creating ~ Cindy

I created some new necklaces using my batik bone round pendant drops.

Simple knotted fine cord and bead design.  I love the simplicity of these necklaces.  Earthy and elegant at the same time.
