Sponsor Feature: Judith Johnston Beads

Happy Thursday! 

Well. I'm headed back to work this morning. I was lucky enough to get a little part time gig at the Wellin Museum at Hamilton College helping them with their collections database.  I'll be there twice  a week and will no doubt have some trouble getting back into the swing of my business/ + job. But I know you'll bear with me right!?  I think it will be a good opportunity to be around some art again, and I love the local museums in this area. The Wellin is actually a brand spankin new museum that was just built on the campus at Hamilton. It's a lovely building and I am excited to get the grand tour today. As with any change, I'm a little nervous but I'm sure it will go well.

For today I wanted to share with you some fabulous beads by a new ad sponsor. Meet Judith Johnston. She runs a nice little bead shop over at Etsy and you should check that out when you have some time.

Judith creates lamp work beads and also creates jewelry with her beads. The best of both worlds, I'd say! She sent me a few earring pairs, and I was able to play around with 2 pair yesterday.

This first set are lovely green and coral lentils with such detail and depth. I wire wrapped them with some copper wire and some coral rounds.

She also sent me this set of silvered Plum beads, that I wire wrapped with some glass rings, and ribbed lamp work rounds from Gardanne Beads.  I love the colors in this pair, the photo doesn't do them justice at all.

You'll see Judith's ad over in the side bar with the sponsor ads. Keep checking in for new work and enjoy your beads if you get any, which I think you should, because they are fantastic.


  1. Good luck with the new job, Lorelei, sounds great. I'm just about to cut my days back for some more creative time. Gorgeous earrings as always!

  2. Congrats on your new job! I work from home and one thing that I really miss is the people contact. Sounds like you will have the best of both worlds. Gorgeous earrings!

    "But I know you'll bare with me right!?" No, I'd prefer to keep my clothes on, thank you.

    1. HAAAA Boy what would I do without you - thanks for the heads up.

  4. Congrats on the museum job. I hope you can recharge your creative side. I checked out Judith's shop and her gorgeous lampwork beads. Thanks for the introduction.
