Tuesday's Tip

When designing jewelry try to think outside the box! Ask yourself,what would happen if I did this,or changed this,added more or less.Make dangles extra long or turn a component a different way.Think about different color combinations.I like to look at my favorite fabrics for inspiration.By making your jewelry unique it will set you apart from all the everyday beaders and will command a higher price for your unique designs!
