Featured Designer: Dawno

YAY!! It's the weekend! That's my gratitude statement for the next 48 hours!! It's a wonderful feeling to know you are free for a couple days to wander aimlessly, to create endlessly or to just BE!

I wanted to share a favorite jewelry designer with you today who provides a great deal of information about her experiences in bead hunting, jewelry designing as well as both the online and craft show jewelry business. You may know her as "Dawno's Beaded Badge Lanyards", but she creates much more than badge lanyards these days.

I have two recent favorites from her collection. One is the "red magma necklace" The large donut-shaped swarovski bead is just gorgeous mixed with this chain which is a perfect compliment to the sparkliness of the bead.

The other is the moonstone jewelry set which includes a lanyard, necklace, earrings and (my absolute favorite) the dangly bracelet pictured to the right.

For anyone in need of beaded badge lanyards, check out Dawno's Etsy shop! For other creations in general, take a look in her ArtFire shop!!

Thanks to Dawno for allowing me to mention her work!

Have a great evening!
