Featured Ads

Once a week (or every few weeks :)  ) I'd like to feature a few of the wonderful artisans who contribute ads on my blog sidebar! If you would like to include your ad on my blog, email me and I'll give you more details!

I picked some of my favorite listings from these talented ladies' shops and created collages for each. I hope you enjoy these and take a moment to click over to their stores! Happy Shopping!

Today's feature: 
 Moogin Beads: Mindy McGregor creates fantastic and unique lampwork glass beads from her home in Scotland! I am totally obsessed with buying her beads. I feel like it's Christmas everytime I get one of her packages!! Her stringer work is that of a genius. Check out her shop.

 Genea Beads:  Genea Crivello-Knable is also a wonderful lampwork glass artist. She creates earthy and funky beads, headpins, focals, clasps and uses interesting and inspired color palettes. I especially love her Wing Ding beads which are unique to her. Check out her Etsy shop!

 Starry Road Studio: Karen Totten lives in Kentucky and creates amazing things using Ceramic clay. But she's been playing around lately with other mediums such as Bronze metal clay! And she's teamed up with her talented daughter Nellie, who makes the coolest Fiber Wire- It's so fun to use! Be sure to check out their etsy shop!

Mary Harding: Mary is also a ceramic bead artist and she works in many different mediums also but her specialty is her nature inspired pendants and components. She creates beads, pendants, and clasps. She works from her home in Upstate NY. Check out her Etsy shop!

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!

Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.
