Featuring Off the Wall Baubles and Beads, Arlene Couchman, Beading Artist and Instructor

What can I say, I'm fortunate to be surrounded by incredibly talented artists and this is another beloved favorite of mine.

The quality of her work, the elegance of her designs and her amazingly fantastic way of teaching makes this mind boggling art something really special to learn as well as wear.

Arlene teaches by appointment and her exquisite jewelry can be found at The Crazy Merchant.   And yes, I already own a magnificent bracelet of hers, as well as booked a class with her!  :)

Never Settle, Featuring Sweet and Pikki

Another fabulous artist I love?
Sweet and Pikki.  Why?

Because I 'never settle' for anything less than incredible too!
I love her jewelry and I've tried on several pieces... they're divine and beautifully detailed.
Not to mention Pikki's energy is just delightful and you can 'feel' it, in her gorgeous creations.

To the Beach! ....  http://sweetandpikki.com/

Pikki has been creating inspirational Designer Sea shell jewelry for over 18 years. 

"The vision originated in San Francisco at the beach and pier with my loving father's love and passion for exploration and teaching me to look beyond.  "

Her beautiful jewelry can also be found at The Crazy Merchant.

Designed for Time, Amazing Chain Maille Artist, Lloyd Braunberger

I knew it might happen and it did... I fell in love with this chain and I can't help but order more!

I just purchased this from Designed for Time, by artist Lloyd Braunberger and I LOVE it.
His work is exquisite and I couldn't be happier with my new jewelry.

Here's a link to his website where you can get one of your own :)  I'm not parting with this one. Thank you Lloyd!


Featuring Carol Ellen Originals, Quality Handmade Vintage Jewelry

Amazingly beautiful jewelry!  I've seen it first hand and just wanted to share... her work is gorgeous and very inspiring!  I encourage a visit to her Etsy store, Carol Ellen Originals.

I have been designing, making, and teaching beading for 15 years. I love taking vintage, old, and unique jewelry items (watches, earrings, broaches, pins, etc.) and re-purposing them into new and stunning one-of-a-kind necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. I also specialize in unique beaded designs using semi-precious stones, crystals, metals, pearls, glass and more. "

My new home! The Crazy Merchant

This is the most fabulous beading studio and store I've ever seen ... and I'm super excited to share that I'm a delightful part of team Crazy!  :)   How perfect, right?   If you're local and don't know about us... let me say first... we're a two story, bright turquoise building with an amazingly beautiful, pink, dancing elephant on our sign... and located at 1700 W. Bellview in Littleton, Colorado... so you won't miss us.  And you shouldn't!

... there's even a comfy lipstick sofa and refreshments for the patient companion. :)

The walls are covered with gorgeous strands of everything I've ever dreamed of and the chandeliers are better than anything I could have ever imagined.  It's my new favorite place and now I 'work' here! Doing a happy dance, for sure!

We had our Pre-Holiday Extravaganza today and it was a blast!  
Take a look and come join us for the next one if you're in town.

Jewelry Table Tips! This is how I get organized with my wire wrapped earrings...

Most of the time, I'm a delightful whirl wind in the studio....And I don't really want to stop or spend a huge amount of time figuring out how to be too organized... so I've been on this earring kick and needed a quick place to 'hang' them while I continued to create... I needed space on the table! ;)
Giant paper clamps... and a lampshade ;)

Complete organization of my earring projects until I move them into 'store inventory'
or the gift packages  ... and a place to hang my reading glasses... as a FREE BONUS!

Use this idea for earrings, bracelets, pendants, bead strands, chain ...

Enjoy!  ...
I hope it inspires!
