A Bella Bead wishes you a Blessed Day!! Check out our August Class schedule

Friday, March 22, 2013


It sure has been a crazy couple of weeks here.  With the Trunk Shows and CRYSTAL CLAY Classes.
BUT I am sure ready for the Spring to be here.  ENOUGH OF THIS COLD!!!

Had a Great Trunk Show this week.  Kendall from CAbi Clothing had a private show at URBAN CHIC HOME in Glen Ellyn on Monday night.  Below are some of the pictures from the show.  Great pieces went out the door that night.  Met some really great girls, I found out that night that two of them are moving out of state.  There was Elizabeth who is moving to Texas, she bought several great long pieces, and then there was Tammy who is moving to Tenn. she bought a beautiful black onyx wrap necklace and the "I'm To Pretty To Work" piece.  I am sure both of these Ladies will be missed by their friends.  Hope you come back and visit A Bella Bead at Urban Chic Home  when you are back in town.

Check out the scarves on these girls!  These are so SOFT and very lightweight.  Perfect accessory with the jewelry pieces.  The clothing was furnished from CAbi.  Email me at  if you are interested in purchasing these beautiful colors.  Two different styles to choose from the Infinity Scarf  ($15.00)or the Boa Scarf ($25.00).  Colors: Light Purple, Black, Gold, Pink, Burgundy, Silver Gray, White, Green and Mixed Colors.   They can be purchased at Urban Chic Home in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. 

Besides the Beautiful Gold Scarf there is a lot of great things in this photo.  The Long A Bella Bead necklace and beautiful White Agate Cross. Which SOLD the night of the Trunk Show.  

And if you haven't noticed! 
Check out our Garden Stakes. We have many to choose from this year.  I will be posting a picture of the different ones that Urban Chic Home will have in the shop.  Pictured here are the Breast Cancer Yard Stakes.  Beautifully done in a hard steel material they come with a small pink ribbon magnet on the back to put on your fridge.  These ribbons come in ALL THE COLORS for the Cancers we MUST FIND A CURE FOR!!!!  You can go onto to see the GREAT pieces that Jerry makes.   Be creative in your garden this year and place your garden stakes so they can be seen. Place your Cancer Ribbon by the front door so everyone knows your house wants a cure for this DEVASTATING DISEASE!
Next week I will show you a variety that can be purchased at Urban Chic Home.

I am really excited about this next class we are doing and if you are in the area you are welcome to come join us.  CONTACT ME AT:   

I made a duplicate of this bangle in October of last year (which I sold a week later). (The one pictured  above I just found out a week ago is the piece that Debra from Crystal Clay made for the Bead and Button show)  We are going to make this bangle in class with a little twist to it!  IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL, loved the colors and different shapes.  When I get the class dates lined up I will post them along with a picture of the Crystal Clay Bangle that will be taught.

I made this one a couple of months ago with the Tourquise Crystal Clay and the Swarovski Chaton Mix Blues and Greens.  It is Beautiful!  So watch my blog for more future information.

This week Teri asked if A Bella Bead  would do a CRYSTAL CLAY Class for our Bunco group and their daughters.  Thank You Teri for hosting this party, we all had a blast!!  And here they are, everyone of these girls inspired each other with their creative imagination and artistic inspiration.  GREAT Pendants girls, I loved each and everyone of them.

It almost didn't happen, if it wasn't for Debra at Crystal Clay I would not have had my classes.  You are so appreciated Debra, thank you so much for all your help and GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE.  I am a customer for life!!   
Here are few of the pendants that were made that night out of 25 girls.  Everyone did a Great job.  We had a blast doing these pieces and afterwards had a A BELLA BEAD TRUNK Show! 
Thank you to all that came that night.

Teri used Bright Bold Blues and Clear Crystals with Smoked and Jet Black and added a hit of Blue Pastels crystals. She added the Pearl Dust on top.
Beautiful Pendant worthy of a night out on the town!

This is one that I did  for the class example.  It is done with the White Crystal Clay with Swarovski Pink, Green and Crystal Clear Chaton Crystals.  NO Dust was applied.

Cathy and her daughter Melissa decided to make the same style pendants.
Melissa told me they wear going to wear them as earrings!  LOL,  their lobes will be on the ground! 
They each did the Jet Black Crystal Clay with Clear and Smoked Mixed Chatons.  This picture does not do this pendant justice.  They are both Beautiful Pendants!


Mary Ellen did this pendant in Silver Crystal Clay with a Mix of Chatons NO dust was added.  The color of the crystals Mary Ellen used are awesome!  Pinks, Shades of Blues and Purples and a Clear Crystal with a hint of greens.  Very nice!

Candie and Lexee both did Copper Crystal Clay with the mixed Chanton Crystals.  The Copper was so pretty and the colors of the crystal really came out in full color!!  Very creative as to where they both placed their crystals.  Stands Out and walks in the room!

Sue T. did her pendant in a Silver Crystal Clay with Mixed Chantons with a Pearl Dust over it.  Sue choose beautiful BOLD Blues and Pinks along with Clear Crystal and subtle pastels.  The Pearl Dust added a extra POP!  Beautiful piece for the Spring!

ALL of these Bunco Girls and their daughters did amazing artistic designs.  I am very impressed that they inspired each other in what they were trying to do.  Each one was thinking outside of the BOX!
GREAT JOBS to everyone!
Thank you for making my class so much FUN.  Hope we can all do it again.

Gods Blessings
