If I had a dime for every time someone asks me why my twitter handle is “thebeadgirl” when I am, in all actuality a metal smith….well, I would have several dimes. 🙂
But the truth is…when I started this amazing adventure in jewelry it was the lure of the beads. The colors. The shapes. They textures. Oooo makes me all giddy just thinking about it.
Then I was wooed away. Who knew I was really a PYRO? I love fire. I love my torch…it’s my favorite tool. There is something so powerful about “playing with fire”. But I digress…
I started with beaded jewelry and therefore became “thebeadgirl” and I don’t mind it one bit. But I really do very little with beads anymore. Which brings me to the point of this post.
Number 1 – I have opened a destash shop on Etsy – called aptly… thebeadgirlSTASH – I have purchased all my beads at wholesale and my desire is just to cover the cost and get those little pretties into YOUR hands.
Number 2 – I have opened a CLEARANCE section in my beadgirl Etsy shop that has some of my retired designs at 50% off the original price. The are beaded. They are still beautiful. And basically it’s a great deal! Currently there is only one of each style available…I may find more…but NO promises.
Here is a sampling of what is available at posting time. Happy shopping!
