HAF Featured Artist for March 21 through 28 LTDBeads

"There's still a box out in my garage, labeled "Joan's Stones". I collected them as a child − and started beading not long after, making rosaries for the missions".

This is a quote of a lady after my own heart, beads and jewelry start out as a fascination for a lot of us from early on.  And I think that making jewelry is an expression of your personality in a lot of ways, it certainly is an expression of talent.  Joan has a boat load of talent and from what I hear from other HAF members a pleasant and helpful nature as well.  She has a great knowledge base on beads and gemstone that she shares with us on her website and she has an Artfire Shop at and an Etsy shop as well LTDBeads

I am proud to be featuring Joan, even as a Jewelry Artisan myself, I find my self coveting some of her jewelry!

Artfire is Implementing New and Wonderful Things Soon

As part of the Maven Team at I was fortunate to be able to test drive some new studio features that I think are spectacular!

With this new upgrade members will be able to click and drag their shop items in whatever order they want, and it is quite simply click and drag, and SAVE.  You will also be able to move products from say page i to page nine, you can move all of your earrings or baby buntings to be all on one page, for crying out loud!

These two capabilities are going to be such timesavers, and will allow us to be shift our listings based on how what we think needs front row seating for that day, or for that week.

I for one am thrilled with all the new changes here at Artfire, and do feel as a seller, that my concerns are being heard and addressed.

Holy Smokes!

This blog will present my latest Precious Metal Clay jewelry pieces as I create and post them.  Some have crazy stories behind them, and some just are.  Molded and shaped with fingers and oddball tools, and then given names if necessary.
