Studio Tour Sunday

 This week at Rust Belt Market, I brought a new test batch of heart pendants!  I did pewter & white and red & black ones, all with floral designs. Some of the red ones have bold rose designs stamped into them, which remind me of old school tattoo designs.  The hearts have already been well received this weekend, so I am excited to make more up as a regular item, with a special push of them for Valentine's Day.
Let's see what some of our beady friends are up to this week!

Snap out of it, Jean! There's beading to be done!
Valentine's Day is one of the most delightful days on Jean's calendar! Why? Because she gets to think about love, and jewelry such as the astounding pendants at NanoStyle! Tell your beloved "I love you" in a most incredible way!

  2. Pretty heart pendants! Adorable indeed. Great job.

  3. I think there will be a rage for hearts as the valentine season is coming. Valentine is also a time when you gift your love and woman love jewelry so it can be a perfect gift also.
