il_430xN.159984777 Down the Rabbit Hole – Bead Embroidery Cuff from ThreeFatesDesign

more about ThreeFatesDesignGrowing up in a household of artists, I struggled to find my medium, my passion. I tried everything, and then tried it again. Then early on in high school, my mother (who is an exceptional artist) bought me some beads and some string. I was immediately hooked. I wanted more and more beads. I wanted to push my designs further and further. I soon began stitching, not just stringing the beads.
Then college came and my passion was put on hold. I rarely had enough free time between classes, let alone enough money to buy supplies. Finally, I graduated with my degree in Biology, but then real life set in and it was time for a job. And let me tell you, research takes a lot out of you. I finally had the money to afford supplies, but still had no free time to bead. My beads were pushed further back on the burner.
But after I took a position at the medical college, I had the free time I never had before. So after years of "you should really sell this stuff," I was able to start Three Fates Design.

Animal Vegetable Mineral, Red necklace - Bone, wood, red aventurine from JennyHoople

more about JennyHoople: I started making jewelry in July of 2009.
Job's tears are the seeds of a grain plant that grow all ready with a shiny grey coating and a hole through the middle! I saw them in the Seed Saver's Exchange catalog and couldn't resist trying to grow them. I ended up with a whole tin full of beautiful, natural beads, but I didn't know what to do with them. I made one necklace, but because the seeds were so light, the heavy clasp kept coming around to the front, so they sat in my basement, adored, but unused. A few years later, my parents were in town visiting and (as usual), my mom wanted to stop at a craft store. While I was waiting, I was thinking about those job's tears and walking up and down the beading aisle trying to decide what might look good with them. I bought an unakite pendant, some unakite chips and some wood and shell beads and took them home. I made one necklace that I really liked, and my mom liked it so much, she had me make one for her, too. I had a few materials left over so I just tried to come up with as many different designs as I could until I ran out. Well, I was hooked! I needed more materials!! When I started making this jewelry and couldn't stop, I figured that I'd better start selling them before we ended up drowning in them, and it's been a fantastic merry-go-round of design, color, textures and beauty ever since.

Four Panel Skirt - Upcycled Vintage - Sz 4-6 from thePaintedDaisy

more about thePaintedDaisyInspired my great grandmother-who saved and recycled ALL fabric, I have been admiring and collecting vintage linens and other textiles for more than 10 years.
A few years ago, when my storage totes were stuffed to the max, I decided it was time to start creating with all the lovelies I had packed away. First came throw pillows, then bags and purses, and finally clothing. I love mixing in new mod fabrics too!
I currently split my time between my seamstress job at a local upholsterer, The Painted Daisy, and of course, my 2 active kids!

banglesBangles from Lulu & Deedee

more about Lulu & Deedeelula & deedee jewelry is a creative fusion of vintage elements and modern sensibilities. To create each piece, I use beads from the 1920’s through the 60’s, gathered from a variety of sources— estate sales, vintage shops and online. This means that there is usually a very small amount of a particular bead available, resulting in truly one-of-a-kind pieces.

 

If you missed out on the first artist features make sure you head back to Volume I and Volume II.
