My friend Jenn Judd Velasquez, of Jen Judd Rocks!, took a little trip earlier in the week to Colonial Williamsburg with her honey. She took some photos of floxglove while she was there and posted some really cool effects that she did on picnik.
I always love when customers send me photos of what they make with the beads I make! Here are two recent customers and what they made!
The first is StevieBDesigns on etsy. He used my mini sparkle beads and coordinating leather cord to make these really cool earrings! Check out his shop – these earrings are currently available!
The next is Kristi Bowman of DreamSome on etsy! She used custom-made beads based on a set of inspiration beads I posted about earlier. She used her own enameled head pins and her own Sea Urchin textured squares to make the earrings! They are great, and are available in her etsy store as well!
If you have used beads that you purchased from me, please send me photos of your finished jewelry! I’ll be glad to feature them and post a link to your shop!
If you head on over to the Art Bead Scene Blog, you will find a massive giveaway based on the Beads 2011 Issue! A lot of bead artists are participating in this giveaway, including me! I donated some copper enameled components that you will be able to find in the magazine! You need to leave a comment on the Art Bead Scene Blog, and you can get extra chances by sharing the news on social media sites!
My son’s friend Amy went to Australia last summer, and brought him back this boomerang thingy. I love the colors and the dots, and thought it would be great for some inspiration for some beads. So here’s a small interpretation of the design on the boomerang. Cool, huh? Look for some more beady inspiration next week!
Finally, blogger is back on! There are some new beads listed in the SueBeads etsy store! Take a look!
Yay! I have 8 sets of enamel headpins going into the SueBeads etsy shop this morning! Come and get ’em!
Thanks for all the birthday wishes, both on the blog and on Facebook! It was wonderful getting all those messages yesterday! There’s still one set of enamel headpins on etsy and I’ll make more this week!
