HAF artist spotlight - A Bead Thing






I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving. Today I would like to introduce to you a very talented bead artisian Pam from A Bead Thing. She says "Handcrafted jewelry is my passion. Choose handcrafted bracelets, rings, necklaces and pendants. I especially love creating bead woven jewelry because of the enormous variety in colors available and the diversity in style that can be created. Bead woven or stitched items are also lightweight and easily cared for. All contributed content © abeadthing". Take a look at her beautiful creations and you will see the passion she has.


Pam is a semi-retired realtor in FL. Who has been crafting in one medium or another for most of her life, which she had put it aside because being a realtor and a new grandma took up all of my time. After a heart attack in 2009 she and trying to recover from the depression that often brings she rediscovered her love of beads. I am so glade she did because she has created some very beautiful jewelery.


I invite you to take a look around her shop A Bead Thing at Handmade Atrists' Shop and follow her on facebook, twitter and her Blog.


These are just a few of her Beautiful pieces available in her shop.







These colorful earrings were handcrafted using 6mm crackled glass beads and were wire-wrapped onto a handcrafted 20 gauge gold craft wire circular base. Beads are wrapped with a 24 gauge gold craft wire. Bead dangle is attached to earring finding using a handcrafted figure eight link. Length from earwire to bottom measures 1.5 inches














This lovely celtic knot ring has a braided shank and celtic knot on top using 20 gauge gold craft wire. This ring is a special order ring as it will be necessary to create the ring to your size. Be specific when ordering as to the ring size.














This bracelet is handwoven using emerald colored 4mm swarovski crystals, goldtone 11/0 seed beads on heavy duty FireLine thread. It is reinforced several times throughout the bracelet. Length is 8 inch.. Can be ordered for specific size and/or color










These will make a prefect gift for any lovely lady this Christmas.
