Good morning friends! I hope everyone had a beautiful day of giving thanks! During these holidays John and I really try to stay at a steady pace. So everything we make is very well made and there is no OMG stress. In our online stores most everything is made to order. But this year we have some “READY TO SHIP SECTIONS”. We have been making the things we make for over 25 years and have learned there is no way to have every single thing we make sitting there ready to ship out .
This year we have ready to ship leather handbags, beaded handbags , medicine bags wallets, and a few pair of baby moccasins. You can find all of these sections in our ETSY SHOP THUNDER ROSE , in the first three sections after the ON SALE section. Just so you know we are running a sale. When…
Good evening everyone! I would love to show you some beautiful handmade jewelry art from Rainbow Artist team member, leader and my dear sweet friend Kathi Heale from Lilly Beads Designs. Kathi makes a variety of beaded jewelry from beaded necklaces, bracelets, earrings and beaded leather wrap bracelets. She has beautiful jewelry sets and gifts that would be perfect for Mother’s Day or any holiday .
I am in love with her leather wrap bracelets. I have one that I wear almost everyday. They are so comfortable you hardly know you have something on your wrist. But they make what you are wearing pop. They are very , very cool!
Kathi takes customs orders so you can create just how many wraps you would like.
Here are a couple of my favorites that are in her Etsy shop
Now you see what I mean. Wow! These are both beautiful designs with awesome colors. The button closures accent them and add a awesome flavor to bracelet. Not only are a lot of these bracelets unisex but they are perfect for all ages.
There are so many more of these to choose from. You really should go by her Etsy shop and check out all her beautiful Jewelry.
Jenifer is a very talented artist and a very busy woman. She makes very beautiful glass art. Today I would like to show you a couple of my favorite pieces.
But before we get to that here is something from Jen.
CREATE – MelT – and be TIMELESS
Greetings and salutations from Ocean Beach Glass in the Golden State., From the Bay to the Coastal mountains of Northern California. I follow sunsets and daydreams, my world is what I make and my passion for this fire work is more than deep, but a need in my heart to be part of. I often have sand in my shoes and you’ll find I’m truly the most happy when I’m working and being a family at the same time; to be with each hand in hand. Music and the Earth and Skies Inspire me. Though I have worked with many art forms and crafts all my life, Glass is my medium of choice as it allows me to flow freely like the movement of the liquid of the earth that connects us all. A little science and a little art, allowing my mind to grow with every time I see the light of the torch. I’ve always been a serious knowledge seeker, and visionary artist.. and glass.. well glass, it’s like honey, and can drip like water. In melting, allows you to transform it into whatever my heart desires.
I’m grateful for the support of the people who truly collect my glass marbles and stirs. Thank you Thank you Thank you. Especially my return customers who loyally come back to me time and time again.
My Ocean Beach Glass Listings and Etsy store have been pictured in the 2015 Better Homes and Gardens May 2015 magazine issue and you can find me published in the winter 2014 issue of the Flow Magazine., a glass magazine for the flame working community and Featured in the Women in Glass issue and the 2015 Marbles and Paperweights Issue of the Flow Magazine.
I love the beautiful green color of these drink stirs. They are made of borosilicate -Pyrex Glass. Each one of these is handmade. What a beautiful way to serve your guests at a party.
I love the swirling colors in the tops of these glass drink stirs. Stunning work!
This is my first blog, and I wanted to share with you some beautiful creations from my bead work artist friends on Etsy. With the Holidays up and coming, it’s the perfect opportunity to share these beautiful works of art.
