2014 NEW Jewel School Hours!! (EST)
Monday 1/13 – tune in to meet New Guest Artist, Sara Ellis, who will be sharing her innovative designs, created using NEW jewelry making kits from Beadalon. Sara exclaimed, “I am very excited to represent Beadalon on Jewel School! Beadalon offers beautiful high quality products that make jewelry design possible for all skill levels. With a little creativity, some beautiful beads, and using Beadalon products from start to finish, you can create a professional looking piece of jewelry that will last a lifetime.”
Although it’s early January, many folks are already saying, ”winter be gone!” Shown above are two of Sara’s designs, made by combining Beadalon’s Headpin Kit with crystal and Lucite beads. A flowered charm bracelet and bluebell earrings certainly are a way to say “c’mon spring!”.
Sara created the beaded projects above using Beadalon’s Supplemax; perfect for when an almost invisible stringing material is desired, and for “illusion” designs.
Check out the stylish jewelry that Sara made using “flat” memory wire. If coiling beads onto a round wire seems like a challenge, using flat memory wire will make life so much more easy!
