Today we were at JoAnn's! Yes, the store. They were trying something new- having a craft bazaar inside the store. The only catch was we could only set out items we'd made from JoAnn's products. A good idea actually. We had a couple people ask what we used, and we were able to encourage them to try out JoAnn's stuff. Plus, people could see you can make really cute and unusual jewelry with what's available right there in the store. We didn't make very much money, but they didn't charge us anything to set up. So, hey. No outlay, just income. =) I sold 2 things and Beth sold one. Not bad for a day we would have otherwise spent at home.
Look for us next weekend at Pioneer Park/Alaskaland!!! We'll be there Saturday and Sunday.
This Saturday we will be at the Monroe Holiday Bazaar from 10 til 4. If you are in Fairbanks, come check it out! Lots of new pieces- new pretties, danglies, sparklies, and beautiful stone pieces. New Halloween & new Christmas jewelry. Come by and see us!
I finished this piece two nights ago. I like it. The vine necklace idea is very different than anything I've tried before.
Although I have used similar flowers in my hair clips, I've never worked these into a necklace. The entire piece feels BIG to me! ;-)
Which is funny, 'cuz my jewelry is rarely big, and the first word most people use to describe my work is 'delicate'. It's still delicate, just BIG delicate. "snicker" If there is such a thing as BIG delicate...
Hi, Traci! Here are my earrings. I looked for long & swingy, Purple or pink, and turquoise. I hope you find something on the site that you're interested in. Beth uploaded about 12 pairs, and I uploaded about 30 pairs. Happy hunting! Rebecca
We ARE sisters!
Beth got her first beads in sixth grade and has been in love with beadwork since then. (which means she's been doing beadwork a long time!) She is an artist- painter, writer, knitter, embroiderer...
Rebecca has been working with beads for about five years. She is a musician, song-writer, poet, painter, and a serious reader. Both sisters love sci-fi and fantasy.
