Winners of the give-away beads by Caroline Dewison

Ceramic house pendant by Blueberribeads

About a week ago I published the interview with the lovely and very talented Caroline Dewison from Blueberribeads. 
And of course there was a give-away attached. The only thing you had to do for a chance to win either some gorgeous beads from Blueberribeads or a lovely piece of jewelry from me, was to leave a comment.

Today the winners will be picked by Random Picker.

Ceramic and lampwork beads, interview with Caroline Dewison from BlueBerriBeads

Ceramic hearts by Blueberribeads

As you might know I’m doing a series of monthly interviews with bead artists I admire. And I’m so happy Caroline Dewison from BlueBerriBeads agreed to do this months interview.
Caroline is well known for her beautiful ceramic, porcelain and glass beads. I love to design with her beads. It is as if the design process just flows naturally. I’m so exited that one of my necklaces and a matching bracelet with her famous urchin beads were featured in the spring 2014 edition of Stringing magazine.
And I bet, like me, you cannot wait to find out more about the woman behind these beautiful beads. So here you go.

Bracelets and Necklaces, from old to new, makeover

Bracelet in purple and white by Esfera jewelry

I guess I’m not the only jewelry designer who has finished pieces lying around with which they are not satisfied. They either don't look right because something is missing. Or pieces, which are finished, but never made it to Etsy for whatever reason. Or pieces that made it to Etsy but are still not sold.

Winners of the give-away polymer clay beads by Pippa Chandler

Polymer clay beads by Pippa Chandler

About a week ago I published the third interview in my series of interviews with bead artists. The lovely and talented Pippa Chandler of PipsJewellery was so kind to share her story with us.

And she was so generous to contribute this gorgeous bead set for the give-away.
The other give-away is a necklace I creates with one of her lovely art-deco pendants and a beach hut, combined with Czech glass and red leather.

Polymer clay beads, Interview with artist Pippa Chandler with give-away

Polymer clay heart by Pippa Chandler

In my series of interviews with bead and jewelry artists, my next artist should be included.
Pippa Chandler is a very talented polymer clay artist and she makes gorgeous polymer clay beads, pendants and components, inspired by nature. Every time she surprises us with yet another new design.
By now you know I’m a bit of a bead collector (addict or hoarder my hubby would say) and a tiny amount of her beads (only a tiny amount) have found their way into my collection. Needless to say I love to know more about the woman behind the beads and I’m sure you will too.

Bracelets with handmade artisan beads, Art Bead Scene January challenge

Esfera Jewelry handmade bracelet

For more then 6 months I have been planning to participate in the monthly Art Bead Scene challenge. And time and time again I found myself wondering what had happened with my time in the first week of the following month.

But not this time. Ok, it is January 30, so I’m close. But it is still January, I'm in time!

Handmade jewelry and beads to be seen in this e-magazine

Esfera jewelry handmade bracelet

Lovely friends.
I have been a bit busy lately. I did create a tiny bit of jewelry, like this bracelet but I've been busy with something else as well.
In December I discovered Glossi and I made my first e-magazine. But it didn't stop there.


And the winners are.....drum roll please...............

THEAelements, handmade bronze leaves

About a week ago I published the second interview in my series of interviews with bead and jewelry artists. Lesley Watt of THEAjewellery and THEAelements was so kind to share her story with us. And she was so generous to contribute a gorgeous bead set to the give-away.
The other give-away is a necklace I creates with one of Lesley's gorgeous owl pendants I have been hoarding for a long time.

In to the forest, blog hop reveal

Into the forest blog hop

Lisa Lodge, well known for her lovely jewelry, is hosting another blog host, this month: “Into the forest”.
I received some jasper beads in lovely brown/reddish hues (i think they are Zebra Jasper) and two ceramic round links with a beehive pattern. Artist unknown.

Interview with Lesley Watt from THEAJewellery and THEAelements

Lesley Watt is well-known for her beautiful jewelry. And it seems her talent has no end as her gorgeous bronze and copper components, which she creates and sells since the beginning of 2012, are a huge success as well.
As a bead addict (yep, I admit it) I too have some of her beautiful bronze and copper bracelet bars and bronze pendants (love my owl). 
You can understand my excitement when Lesley agreed to do this interview.
