Let's start with my all time favorite Van Gogh creation from Gloria Ewing, Starry Night Necklace. I would have never in a million years thought to use one of my spacer bar beads that way. Just when I think I should retire my Van Gogh series someone comes along with a brilliant idea and I fall in love them all over again.
You can see more of Gloria's innovative designs in her Etsy shop at Chrysalis Too.
Lorelei Eurto and was published in BeadStyle magazine in 2009.
Blooms and Bark.
You can see more of Lorelei's jewelry designs on her website and in her Etsy shop.
Next up is my friend Rebecca Anderson of Songbead and boy does she ever make Humblebeads sing! Rebecca has a sophisticated eye for color and creates jewelry that leaps off the computer screen. This pendant features one of my Hibiscus flowers paired cleverly with enameled bead caps with a great use of waxed linen to add in a little pop of color. The whole pendant has a magical quality that draws me in!
You can see more of Rebecca's beautiful work at SongBead on Etsy.
And congratulations to Rebecca on having two pieces of jewelry featuring Humblebeads published in Beads and Beyond. These adorable house earrings pair my Willow House beads with some fancy wire and seed bead accents
Petal headpin with a keyhole pendant from Green Girl Studios. There is definitely a story going on here with this design!
And another big hearty congrats goes out to my sweet friend Kaushambi Shah who had this fun pair of Peacock Headpin Earrings published in the Spring issue of Jewelry Stringing Magazine. Love them Kauashambi - the well chosen accent beads bring these art nouveau inspired headpins to life!
Visit Kaushambi's Etsy shop Ornament Lounge to see her art bead infused jewelry.
A gift for you!
