How do you make your handmade jewelry special?

I love to make jewelry it makes me happy.  I want mine to be one of a kind so how do I do that?  I make my own beads and cabochons and I think that’s what makes my pieces kind of special.  What do you do to make your jewelry special?

Lately I have been in a bead making frenzy and it’s been a lot of fun.  Some of the beads I have used in pieces and the ones I don’t need I sell in one of my online shops for other beaders to use. 

I use polymer clay to make my beads it is a wonderful versatile product that can be used to make wonderful things like beads and sculptures.  The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.  So I will show you some of the beads and a few of the projects I made with some of them….

  1. Beautiful! Love your art and that cuff is gorgeous. Just purchased some Lacy’s stiff stuff and ultra suede so I can start playing around with the bead embroidery. So many things to try, so little time!
