Featuring Artsyjewels on Artfire

Get to know the ladies behind  ArtsyJewels

ArtsyJewels is a collaboration of three addicted beaders, Pat,Helen and Ana.

Pat is retired from the 'real world' and enjoys making jewelry for several different outlets online. Her specialty is buying vintage jewelry and gleaning usable parts to recycle into wonderful new items.
Helen is still in the 'real world' and enjoys setting up booths at craft shows throughout the area. She has been a self-employed Manufacturer's Representative specializing in women's accessories, selling to gift shops, hospitals, retirement homes, casinos, museums and pharmacies (to name a few!) for the past seven years.

Ana makes jewelry for home parties - she excels at making elaborate sets. Once introduced to a style or concept new to her, she practices it and embellishes lavishly.

All are avid bead show attendees.
They are members of the Beady-Eyed Women of Lancaster (PA) a group of local women who meet twice a month to have bead swaps, show & tell, learn new techniques and just generally ooh and ahh at each others' work
