Slideshow of Jewelry

Can't believe I figured out how to do this, but I made up a slideshow of a jewelry sampling and published it on youtube today.....isn't that something!! I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks...LOL

I'd love to hear your comments and suggestions, here's the link

Now if I can figure out how to add the video to this blogspot, that will be something.....

Thank you!

First Friday Art Walk on Etsy

There's a new event on Etsy I wanted to let everyone know about. Starting with July, Etsy will have an Art Walk sale the first friday of every month. Participating shops will have specials that day. What a great way to spread the word and encourage people to purchase handmade items for their pleasure and/or every day use.

Unfortunately, I'm going to be out of town for the first Art Walk, but will be participating as best I can. I'll set up my shop with a First Friday section and any item listed in that section I'll have on sale. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions either with a comment attached to this post or through my etsy shop. To contact me through etsy, please click on the title to this blog.

Thank you!!

Hearts Desire

I'm back to beadweaving again! Here's my latest design, called Hearts Desire, using a porcelain heart shaped bead and a beadwoven setting. It's meant to dangle at an angle to show off the fringe. If you click on the title to this blog, you can view more pictures of the necklace and other items in my Etsy shop.

Featured in Etsy

I'm very excited to say one of my pieces (second one in the grouping) was featured in an Etsy treasury yesterday!! I feel so honored to have one of my pieces chosen. What a great way to start the day......please feel free to leave comments.......they're always welcome!

Just click on this link to view it...... I'm not sure how long the treasury will be available.

Have a wonderful day!!

First Wire Wrap Necklace

Please check out my first wire wrap necklace I call Amazing Amazonite. I wanted to see how a necklace would work if the beads were wired together with non tarnish artistic wire rather than beading wire or thread. I really like the way the wire accents the amazonite. I would love to hear any feedback you are willing to send my way. The necklace is available in my Etsy shop.

Beadworks by Kerri on Facebook

I just wanted to let everyone know who reads this blog that I've recently created a BeadworksbyKerri facebook page. If anyone would like to become a fan of Beadworks by Kerri, here is the link:

If this link doesn't work, then once you log into facebook, please do a search (upper right hand corner of the screen) for Beadworks by Kerri and you'll find the page. Once there, you can become a fan.

My plan is to periodically run specials toward purchases in my Etsy shop,

Right now I'm running a 30% off sale for any purchase made this week.

Come join the fun!!!
