Featured Designer: The Beading Gem

This week's featured designer is Pearl (yes, her real name!) of The Beading Gem's Journal. I feel as though I have received a well rounded bead, jewelry, design, fashion, etc. education by reading her blog posts.

I am a subscriber to her Journal so I receive her posts as emails on pretty much a daily basis!! It is one of the highlights of my day, weekdays especially. When I am in work mode, it's great to take a lunch break and scroll through emails on my phone to read her posts. It helps remind me of the creative side of life in the middle of the hustle and bustle.

Pearl is part of a Bead Sisterhood and their work is available, by designer, on their website. You can also follow her adventures on twitter. She provides tutorials, history, info on giveaways and LOTS of focus on fellow artisans. (Where do you find all of this great work Pearl??!)

Here are just a handful of COOL things I have learned from The Beading Gem's Journal:
High tech crystal jewelry (I blogged about this previously because I ordered the USB bracelet the same day!)

Pearl, you are amazing! Thank you so much for all of the wonderful information and insight!!
