Handmade Spark - Linden Avenue Designs

Handmade Spark - Linden Avenue Designs Yep, I did it! I set up my Handmade Spark Mini Site! Super easy to do! Next, I'm working on my banner! I've been wanting to do this for so long and finally had a quiet moment. I've been so busy adding new items to my shop that it pretty much took over my life! But, I do love the new Bali Sterling Silver Beads and Findings that I have added. I also had gotten in a whole new batch of Greek beads, so between the two shipments it has been chaotic. Back to work for me!

Gorgeous Creation Using Varitey of Beads Including Chunky Disks

This creation has so much color it is just demanding you stop and take a look! Julia of smARTgirrrlART definitely has an eye for design, don't you think! I was so sorry to see that it looks like she is taking a hiatus from her shop. I am crossing my fingers that it isn't a permanent thing! She has a wonderful sense of design. I personally am drawn to designs that have lots of color and a variety of components that peek your interest. I'm always looking at the finer details and seeing what the designer did that made the piece work so well together. So, thank you Julia for this wonderful creation!

Close To My Heart - The Humane Society

The Humane Society is a wonderful group of people who save the animals that can't speak for themselves. One of my buyers, Roberta of bertaberta4444 has taken on this wonderful cause, making money for the Humane Society with the sale of her bead creations. She has been selling her earring designs at a coffee house in her area. As of July she was able to contribute $300 to the Humane Society from her profits on her earring sales. Considering she just started this past March creating for this cause I think she has done a wonderful job!!

Juicy Earrings Using Mykonos Ceramic Beads

Everytime I look at these earrings I want to go find a piece of fruit or a super drink concoction with lots of pineapple and coconut OR something I haven't thought of for a while. A Tequila Sunrise! They are sooo juicy it is hard to not want to pick them up and and put them on! I like the variety of the many different components that made these beads. These wonderful creations are from LimeintheSky a wonderful shop on Etsy. Stop on in and take a look around!
