Hello everyone! Just look at the beads in the banner of this weeks Besteam feature, LeAllyson Meyer from Plum Beadacious. It makes me want to run my fingers thru the pile, and watch the colors change as the light bounces of the beads as they move in my hands....yes, I am a beadaholic. And proud of it.
And apparently, so is LeAllyson. The jewelry she creates and lists in her Etsy shop shows a wide range of her personal likes and dislikes. From glasswork beads to gemstones, and crystals to pearls, with a vintage piece thrown in whenever she finds something that catches her eye. Because, after all, artisits create to their own prefrences, and also just for the joy of creating.
Take this first piece as an expample:
|Blue Ploymer Clay Lentils Brass Earrings|
I love how she took the touch of pink swirl on the main bead and carried it over to the small pink bead accents. How exquisite these would look with an upswept hairdo.
LeAllyson just recently (last January) moved to the great state of Colorado, where she feels inspired by the beauty that now surronds her. Did you know that Colorado has 42 state parks? For nature lovers, that is a smorgasboard of trails to hike. I just goggled Colorado, since I've never been west of the Mississippi myself, and boy, that state just got bumped up on my list of places to go.
I'm sure the colors there is what inspired this next piece:
Rust Orange and Brown Dyed Turquoise Beaded ID Badge Laynard
What a classy way to dress up office ID Badge. Having something like this would surely make you stand out in a crowded meeting. PlumBeadalicious has been a part of the Etsy world for just over 3 years, with 100% positive feedback. Here's one quote from a satisfied customer.
"I honestly could not be happier with my purchase. Shipping was fast, the earrings themselves are adorable, and the packaging was very professional. I will definitely will be back in the future."
And here's one last piece to leave your mouth watering for more:
Look at how the light just sparkles off those red beads, umm umm.
