I am always looking for good deals on beading supplies and new websites for inspiration. Recently I was was approached by a company (I was not aware of) to do some blogging for them. This company is Aunties Beads. I was really quite impressed with their selection of jewelry supplies, beads, and findings and really encourage you to check out their site. They have tiered pricing (so the more you buy the more you save) and they also have a Beaders Advantage Club where you can accumulate points for your purchases, get free shipping, and get 10% off all your purchases (including sale merchandise). There is a physical store located in Southlake, TX.
I wound up getting several products from their online store and have created some really beautiful (in my opinion) pieces of jewelry. The first is a turquoise and coral necklace, bracelet, and earring set. To make these items I used 10mm turquoise rounds, 12mm red bamboo coral carved diamond stands, and 4 mm flat bali spacers.
The next pieces I created using 12mm lampwork glass beads. I think black and white is so classic.
Then I also made 2 different bracelets using 14mm ceramic round beads and 17mm ceramic square beads.
So check out all the great jewelry supplies at Aunties Beads. I hope I provided some inspiration!!! Happy Beading!
