Tonight we are taking a little break from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and sharing a few upcoming happenings for the JLynnJewels website. Can you tell we are looking forward to sharing our NEW things? We have some beautiful new jewelry collections that will feature new color mixes, focal shapes, charms, and lots more.
This past November, Bead Trends asked us to do an Earring Tutorial for creating our popular Snowman Earrings for their new Bead Blog. Since I've been teaching jewelry design for many years and had such a blast sharing the "how-to's" in an onlin format - I decided to add a few Jewelry Making Tutorials on our website too. Remember if you are a beading hobbyist or budding designer, good jewelry design starts with learning proper techniques and then lots of practicing. Of course you'll need supplies...so we'd thought we share some online retail stores that make it affordable to purchase things in small quantities too - Fire Mountain Gems, Art Beads, and AuntiesBeads for starters).
One of my favorite components to use in jewelry designing is Bali beads and caps which can be purchased retail at Aunties Beads (they have well over 200 Bali items that are reasonably priced) - check out these highly detailed findings at one of my favorite categories "Bali Bead Caps".
