As you’re aware, many of us here at AJE are deep in Bead Fest prep! Part of that prep is to create jewelry samples. This way, customers can get ideas of what they might do with a particular bead or set of beads. And someone might just buy it as well!
Even though my journey started out making jewelry before I started making beads, I am very bad at actually creating jewelry anymore, especially for shows. This time it’s going to be different! And, you’re going to get a sneak peek at some of my new bead designs!
These round beads are going to be a necklace, just for me (but you might be able to convince me to sell it) to show you what you can do with this new bead design! There are 34 beads right here, I may need more, and they will be separated by sterling saucer beads. I still haven’t decided what to string them with yet, right now they are on 1mm cotton braided cord, which I really like.
This new heart focal (hand formed – I’m so proud!!!) is going to be a necklace as well. It will be pendant style with wire-wrapped, rosary style units, just don’t know what beads it will be paired with.
These free-formed small focal sized beads will be a bracelet! Probably strung on beading wire, again with some pretty coordinating gemstones.
Earrings are always easiest for me, and these beaded bead earrings happen to be one of my favorite designs ever! These will be hard to let go. I love the color combination of seed beads, and really love the bronze filigree drops.
And finally, you’ll be able to find these morrocan style earrings at my booth as well, made with disc beads in a gorgeous shade of orange and those amazing filigree drops.
I hope you enjoyed the little preview of some beads and jewelry you will find in my booth at Bead Fest (SueBeads Booth #463) and I hope to see you there! Please introduce yourself!
