Our blog ring feature for the week is A Bead Thing at Handmade Artists shops. So since this happens to be my shop, I decided that I would not "toot my own horn" this time and instead give you a view of some of the shops of my friends there. Now mind you, I can't possibly show you ALL of my friends, but I will give you a taste of the company I keep there. Trust me and I do mean TRUST ME, when I say that you will want to grab a cup of coffee, maybe a danish or two and make sure the kids are set in front of a really entertaining movie on TV with a stack to continue on because you are going to need a bit of time to see everything that you will undoubtedly want to take a look at here.
First, let me show you just a taste of the items you will find.
MulchandMore has been crafting for most of her life beginning her learning curve with her father who had learned to knit in grade school knitting scarves for WWI soldiers and then learning to spin her own yarn from her mother, lessons she has never forgotten and continues to use while learning new methods/techniques and other crafts. She also pours her own soy candles. Talk about handmade.
Then here comes WyndwalkerCreations who really loves creating beautiful pieces where it is jewelry or leather bags or many other items.
OK, let's keep moving along here to BlackbirdMetalworks.
