Feature – The Singing Beader

Based on her studio name, The Singing Beader, can you tell what Connie’s passions are?  Yep, you got that right.  Singing and making beaded jewelry.  I think it is a very fitting name :).

Connie loves the colors, textures and history of gemstones and they are her favorite to work with.  She also likes working with hematite, amazonite, jasper and crystals.  Connie has very cute musical instrument pieces in addition to her gemstone and crystal pieces.

Connie sings on a website called the “Singer’s Showcase,” where she receives many compliments from her listeners.  She also enjoys fun nights out doing karaoke.  When she is making jewelry she likes it quiet so she can concentrate and be focused.  But when she sings, she likes to rock!

You can find Connie at http://thesigningbeader.artfire.com.  She is currently having a Christmas in July sale, so be sure to stop by!  Here is just a sampling of the many beautiful pieces you can find in her studio!

Feature – Pretty Gonzo

Welcome to Pretty Gonzo, home of Handcrafted Jewelry and Fun Vintage Things!  Gonzo is the name of an orange and white stray cat, hence the name Pretty Gonzo :).  Gonzo is no longer a stray and would love for you to stop by “his” shop and say hello!

Mary, Gonzo’s mother, began making jewelry as a sort of therapy after she suffered nerve damage in her hand.  She was determined to turn that setback into something positive.  Inspired by a jewelry-artist-friend, she gave earring making a try.  She makes beautiful handcrafted jewelry and is located on the east coast.  Mary sends you good wishes and happiness whenever you wear one of her pieces!
