What are charm beads for?
Charm beads fit popular trademark bracelets or necklaces, like Pandora, Troll, Chamilia and many others. These charm beads are often referred to as European style. For example I’ve photographed this bead on my Pandora bracelet – see the last image.

Charm beads are not limited to wearing on a trademark bracelet or necklace, you can fit them on any cord or chain as long as the diameter is no larger than 4.3mm. They are also useful for beading projects that require a large hole. Be creative!Charm bead by CrancescaDeCaire.com1

Begin the new year with us at The Hungerford. You are our greatest inspiration. Without you First Friday would not be possible. Thank you for everything! You can find my beads and I in suite 216.

Featured Studio: Create Art 4 Good, Suite 201

Art and every aspect of the creation as well as appreciation of art is as important to me as air. Art is the opportunity to elevate to the highest mountain and the greatest joy. It is an honor to be called artist.

My world at the Hungerford Building not only allows me a sacred space to create art, but also to facilitate opportunities for others to create as well as show their work. This makes me rich beyond measure.

My studio, known as Create Art 4 Good is an organization that seeks to support artists and their work while paying it forward with 20% of the commission from each sale going to charity. It is a joy to participate in this process.

Please visit my website www.createart4good.org to learn about opportunities, the latest showing and workshops. Thank you for taking a moment to learn about my wonderful world.

Screen Shot 2014-11-19 at 9.20.53 AM Thank you for playing the Spice up Your Jewelry Designs Giveaway! A tie breaker was held between two women that guessed 43 beads – that is exactly how many beads are in the salt shaker. My son flipped a coin making Jenny Duncan Pritchard, owner of Oddball Jewelry, the winner! Congrats Jenny! Please respond to my next newsletter with your mailing address to claim your beads.
