Featured Designer:Sandi James of Do Be Do Bead Do

You are going to love this! The fact that Sandi James named her blog, "Do Be Do Bead Do" is too cute, but the tagline is the best!!

It reads, "A mix of Frank Sinatra's charm and Sandi Mazell James' Polymer clay beaded jewelry, tossed together gently with a sprinkling of life.

That's GREAT!

Sandi and I were emailing recently about a post to feature her work on A Bead A Day and by the time we were through talking, Sandi thought it would be fun if we did a giveaway with one of her unique polymer clay creations!! YAY!

Thanks to Sandi's generosity, I'll announce a winner next Saturday and pass them on to a lucky beader!! Just leave a comment on this post for a chance to win! This photo is of the beads she made and passed along to her Bead Soup partner recently as part of that challenge.

In her profile, Sandi mentions that has a serious addiction to beads, loves everything beady and has been up to her ears in beads and everything crafty since she was about 5 years old thanks to her mother who taught craft classes!

Hey, we love the bead addicted over here on A Bead A Day!! Thanks so much for allowing me to share your creativity tonight Sandi!!

I've always admired the bead artist. It is one thing to take beads and make jewelry with them and quite another to create those beautiful beads. And, well where would the jewelry designers be without gorgeous beads? :)

Cute name and very cute design in mint and mauve designs...like the play of innovative colors into the jewelry.

I love some of the clay beads so ugh when there are many layers and some see through clay mixed in to give it that depth. Some ten years back there was a women who did more than beads, she made handbags out of clay that were nothing less than spectacular. They were very expensive but as of today I am so sorry I didn't buy one. I have to stick to the beads which are a smaller treat there of!
