What was your inspiration?
I found these beads when searching for pearls to do wedding jewelry for a friend. I fell in love with them and the seller has about 20 colors in this great 14mm size. I bought a few colors and plan to buy more. They are just gorgeous.
My style is usually a bit rustic, a little boho but I love the classics too and what is more classic than pearls. I think the colors add a modern touch to them and the size gives you a real pop of color.
What are you most proud of?
I love that these are so gorgeous and so simple that I can show someone almost anyone how to make a gorgeous pair of earrings or offer them in my shop and at craft shows at a great price.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Never be afraid to be creative!! Shut out the negative voices and give new things a try. What is in fashion is not as important as what you like, what makes you feel good about yourself!!
