Creative Bead Chat NEWs!


Today I'd like to recognize five ladies that are responsible for keeping one of the Facebook groups I belong to - running smoothly with the sharing of lots of information, techniques, products and more that is useful and also fun!  In a short period of time, it's a "hot" group and has earned the reputation of being one of the best places to go to learn more about a variety of mediums, be exposed to a multitude of jewelry styles - and make some new online friends that share a common bond...being creative.  So in no particular order...I'd like to introduce you to them...and give them a well deserved round of applause!

First up - Marla James of Marlasmud - her store is full of beautiful ceramic findings and pendants...love these!



Melinda Orr of Orrtec - beautiful Patina findings - some of my favorites include her embossed metals


Karen Totten of Starry Road Studio - I have my own collection of her rustic styled pieces ;)



Marla Gibson of Spice Box Designs - exquisite designs with lots of detail!


Keirsten Giles of Lune Designs - unique and one of a kind designs :)

Hope you take some time to go on over and say hello and visit their websites and stores...and of course if you're on Facebook - join us on the Creative Bead Chat :)

Look for my return on a more regular schedule this Fall...where I'll be sharing more JLynnJewels designs and ART tiles, as well as, updates going into our Etsy store at JLynnJewels!

Here's a sneak peek of our newest line...ART BEAD TILES!  These beauties are all professionally finished with smoothly finished wood burned bevel edges in a "chunky" style (3/16" thickness versus our regular 1/8" or thinner "wafer" style tiles.  The reason they are thicker is so they can accommodate an INTERNAL drill hole through the center ~ absolutely fantastic for Stringing and Wireworking - all available in a variety of shapes, sizes and as always, customized to your favorite patterns and colors.  Visit our Facebook page for the latest :)


We will be sharing more in the upcoming weeks including some new Tutorials!
Have a great upcoming week!
