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.

~ I've been cleaning out the studio and finding lots of inventory I need to sell to make room for all the new products coming for the New Year!  

Stock up with my "annual end of the year" clearance sale and enjoy a winter of beading! ~ an extra 50% off select clearance items ~ also many markdowns on other select products as well.

Happy Creating

I've been in the studio playing with my new polymer drops and paper drop headpins and came up with some new earring designs.

Hope these ideas inspire you!

NEW ~ Brand new product page added for my "best seller" artisan jewelry components.

I've been busy in the studio this summer creating new earring headpins, earring components with earwires and pendants.

They will be added to the website real soon.

Happy Creating ~ Cindy


My favorite color scheme ~ red & purple


My poppy flower inspired bead link bracelet using electro plated purple hematite man made gemstone beads, red czech glass faceted beads, antique brass wire and findings.


Pretty summer bracelet design! 

A new batch of my handcrafted paper oval tab bead necklace center beads.

A great three bead focal for the center of a beaded necklace strand.

Handcrafted using paper ovals, washi tape and paint.

One vintage earring finding and two unique designs ideas.

Or just add a bead drop in the center and no bottom drops or charms for a simpler version.
