International award winning designer, SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Ambassador, and Best-selling author.
It's a real thrill for me to be joining the Artbeads family. I've been a customer for years and look forward to sharing with you this journey; just call me a kid in a candy store! They're not just about selling a bead or two; I love their involvement with my beady peeps on the Artbeads blog, Pinterest, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. Artbeads is committed to being The World's Largest Beading Community.
Come join me at the center of a vibrant group of creative artisans addicted to making those little tubes of endless beauties, rocks, gems, and other inspiring goodies into wearable delights.
Create. Inspire. Have fun.

Base Metal Chain
Swarovski Crystal Beads
TierraCast makes some of the best quality jewelry components on the market and I use them all the time. They make it easy to fall in love!
Don't forget to add the chain! I make sure to pay attention and notice the contrasting elements in nature and one of the most outstanding is the muted shades of colors up against the shine of dew drops glistening on a pretty green leaf in the early morning. The new combination of antique copper and shiny copper chain fits right in with our springtime theme.
One of the main reasons I joined the Artbeads family is to play with MORE Swarovski and the Lassero line has captured my heart. Artbeads is the only place you can get these delish blingy goodies. Come celebrate spring with me and my fave Lassero baubles.
Springtime is when all the teeny-tiny buds pop out and begin to blossom, which is kind of how I think of Swarovski Mini Beads. To me, nothing says springtime better than Swarovski's Mini Beads in Fern Green.

Artbeads and Swarovski
I'm honored to be a CREATE YOUR STYLE with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Ambassador. Working with the best of the best really matters. Artbeads is a CREATE YOUR STYLE with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Partner, so I know I'm getting excellent quality in not only SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS, but the latest trends and innovations in the beading and jewelry making world.
Besides, my pups Sparkle & Bling love Swarovski the best, too. And, with over 8,000 different components, I think I'll be set for awhile!

Devin and Cynthia Kimura started Artbeads in their garage in 2000. It's so much fun to be around folks who are passionate about what they're doing.
It's more than entertaining. Check out the great giveaways and beautiful jewelry designs. I'm looking forward to contributing my beady news and ideas.
As a teacher of all things sparkly, I love the videos for beginners, jewelry making, and craft ideas. I can't wait to dive in and share new projects with you.
