studio news ~ creative tips ~ design ideas
Welcome to my bead journal & studio news. This journal was created for the "creative", a place to inspire and share all my bead finds, design & color ideas and previews of new products.
First let me share a little more about me. I am a 61 year old bohemian soul (the mystic peasant) living the artisan dream. My business is a home-based online bead shop, leaving me more time to create and keep my inventory new and exciting.
I create mostly "limited edition" beads, components and jewelry. When buying ready made beads and supplies for the shop I always look for the unusual. 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 weeks 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
~ New from the studio ~
Been busy in the studio making lots of new inventory.
Here's a new batch of bohemian tribal style hand painted wood beads.
Anxious to try some of these in my own designs!

I've been cleaning out the studio and finding lots of inventory I need to sell to make room for new products!
Stock up with my "clearance sale" just in time for all those new "spring & summer designs! ~ an extra 50% off select clearance items ~ also many markdowns on other select products as well.

~ Earring Design Ideas ~
I've been in the studio playing with my polymer drops and paper drop headpins and came up with some new earring designs.
Hope these ideas inspire!

I've been adding a new line of charms, drops & pendants.
Great quality and a affordable way to spice up some earrings, bracelets and necklaces.
Lots of cute designs in different metal finishes. Made from lead free pewter.
Some of my new jewelry designs that will be listed soon. Hope they inspire.
Love working with lots of bead caps. Try layering them, turn them upside down over eyepins or headpins. Have fun experimenting!
