I am not usually that much of a bracelet maker – but I’ve really been on a roll lately!

About 6 months ago I moved into a great new studio space and finally acquired a torch and some enameling supplies – then the fun began!
I got a very limited taste of enameling a few years ago when I worked at a bead store, and have been itching to try it again ever since. Now I can’t get enough!
Follow lilruby jewelry on Instagram if you’d like to see more – I don’t think I’ll be stopping anytime soon!
I was surprised and flattered last week to receive an invitation to be a Design Ambassador for Jesse James Beads!
How it works is they send out a packet of beads, I use them in my designs and post them on Instagram and/or Facebook, and they send more beads – how fun is that!?
My first packet arrived today and I couldn’t wait to get started – within an hour I made 3 pairs of earrings and a pendant, which is pretty productive for me!
Here are the beads they sent, and what I made with them-
It’s interesting that some of these are beads I probably wouldn’t have picked myself, but using them stimulated my creativity which is a very good thing!
