I just got back from Bead Fest, where I was both vending and teaching. If you want to read about the fun trip from a behind the scenes perspective, you can check out my personal blog here
There is something really energizing about being around other creative people. Bead Fest, as I am sure other bead shows and guilds are too, is just buzzing with energy. Everyone is happy, and friendly, and you can stop just about anyone to talk about what they made in class or what or who they are wearing!
While I was there I met a lot of new people, and directed many of them to this site. So, I just wanted to take a minute to talk about our little creative group here. Love my Art Jewelry is made up of a variety of artists from many different backgrounds. We try to share what we have learned, and hopefully save you some of the trial and error we have all inevitably experienced.
Did you know we have a great tab at the top of the page for "tutorials"? Here you will find a TON of information on wire working, soldering, tools, making clasps, resin, polishing, antiquing, metal clay, making molds and much much more.
If you search the blog you can find things about applying to juried shows, outdoor show set ups and tips, and marketing information.
You can also click on the "shop" tab to find links to all of our shops. There you will find tutorials for purchase, jewelry, beads and other supplies.
Are you interested in becoming a guest blogger on our blog? check out the "guest" tab to see how. We would love to "meet" you and see what you have to share!
Anyhow, I hope you enjoy the blog and find a little community here that supports you and helps you to learn and grow !!!!!
