Okay I am excited to announce that after several years of research and desire, I am going to have to just do it. I really want to learn to how to make pretty soldered pendants and rings and all the really good stuff. Now that I have the bead shop and a super ton of beads..I think I will just have to do it now!
Just look at these pretty 8mm citrine antique cushion cabochons above. These would be so pretty in a ring or a pendant. These remind me of drops of crystal clear honey..so shiny and beautiful!
I just took some photo's of these beautiful turquoise smooth round cabochons. They measure about 5mm and are a great quality, with that earthy sweet look. Turquoise is one of my favorite summer wears. These cabs are also a new addition to 101 Best Beads!
I also have a lot of new 7 mm rainbow moonstone cabochons just waiting to be displayed in a hot "Bella" twilight ring! Gosh these are super pretty. Moonstone is a haunting gemstone for me and it does literally yank at my "soul". I have a pair of earrings that I created in my shop called "Soul. Anytime now I will be getting the 10mm rainbow moonstone cabs in. I can't wait.
So, for those of you wanting to learn and grow in the craft of jewelry design..contact me. I found this great forum called the "Starving Jewelry Artist". You have to check them out. And, there is some great tutorials on "Jewelry Lessons.com" as well. I will be compling a list here of sites that get's the newbie started, as I go along . I am actually ordering most of tools, torch and kiln in the next week or so.
If your willing to learn and grow with me..let me know. I would also love to post your work and ideas here if your open to that. I know I will be.
Thanks for reading everyone and for checking out 101 Best Beads!
