On AJE Blog ~ On Wild Autumn Winds Earrings Tutorial

As promised—a brand new earring tutorial using Bethanne's new leather chevron rectangles! I'm so happy with the way these earrings turned out!

Go here to see the tutorial and make a pair for yourself!

The chevron rectangles, aster wheels, and seabird beads are all available in my shop. :-)

Happy beading!

Fall Shop Update!

It's time for another shop update!

Up first, are these brand new burned leather focals…

But these are not my own work—they're made by my sister Bethanne! Gorgeous, aren't they?!

And some rustic chevron rectangle focals, also made by Bethanne. These are so much fun! Lucky me—Bethanne gave me her first pair! I've got an earring tutorial in the works to show you all very soon.

And now, a few new things from me…

So many of you have asked me to make matched pairs of my little daisy charms for earring designs… and so I'm now offering them in my shop!

Daisy charms now in gossamer white.

And a brand new daisy focal too…
Both Bethanne and I are loving this half moon shape right now. It's nice to have some different shapes once in a while, don't you think?

Half daisies in rustic copper brown. I think these would be a great station in a chunky beaded necklace… I need more time to make jewelry!!

And one last pressed flower bead in gossamer white.

In sleepy critter land, raccoons and skunks are back in stock. And… turtles and squirrels have returned in new colors—orange wood turtles and red squirrels have joined the shop too!

See everything in my shop here.

Happy Fall!
