The "Miriam" necklace is one of my signature pieces. It has been a fan favorite, but the unfortunate part is that I can only create it until my supply of these fabulous Miriam Haskell beads runs out! I recently listed this piece, which is named "Miriam's Sister". It also features vintage Haskell beads, only they are slightly different in color from the ones used in the first necklace. It is absolutely stunning and perfect for Spring and Summer!
- This blog started out as a way for me to display and sell my handmade jewelry creations. I have set up shop on Etsy.com, where my shop name is "Dreamin of Beadin". The link to my Etsy store is located on the right hand side of this page. Please check me out!! If jewelry's not your thing, then check out the site anyway ~ there are plenty of talented artists selling lots of cool things there. For your reading pleasure, this blog will serve as a sneak peek into what's going on "behind the scenes" in my world. I love to cook, so there will be plenty of recipes, as well as product reviews and the occasional product giveaway (woo hoo!) I also love to take pictures of anything and everything, and I just bought a new camera, so there will be plenty of photos. And I like wine too, so things could get pretty interesting . . . Thank you for your support of me, Etsy and "all things handmade" :)
If you're familiar with my Etsy shop, then you know that I hardly ever make the same thing twice. I've never been a big fan of repetition, and I truly love coming up with new designs. My customers benefit from this by knowing that they are truly wearing a piece of jewelry that will never be duplicated. Once in great while, however, a particular design is so fabulous that it warrants re-creation. This past week I brought back two designs that have been seen in my shop before, but even they are slightly different from their predecessors. This is a new take on my "Jennalee" necklace, which I named after my sister. She just happens to be the biggest fan of my stuff, so I wanted to honor her by naming this sweet necklace after her. It has the most unique vintage pendant ~ I was so happy that I stumbled across another one of these! I've changed the design up slightly from the original, but still used white and aqua blue vintage glass beads and brass findings.
