Bead soup party update

Esfera Jewelry bead soup party update

I’m so sorry I’m late with my blog about the bead soup party. With my exams and my dad in hospital I just didn’t find the time. But here is my first update.

My bead soup partner is the very talented Hajer Waheed from the Kingdom of Bahrain. She can do amazing things with beads, especially with those tiny little seed beads I love so much.

In the spotlights

Esfera Jewelry Valentine bracelet give-away

Happy weekend ya’all.
The last couple of weeks were kinda boring for me: work, work, work and study, study, study. Almost no time what so ever to let my creative personality “speak”. 
So I’m so happy I had my exams yesterday and I will finally have time again to create jewelry with my ever-expanding hoard of beads. At least, if I pass the exams…fingers crossed. Will know in 6 weeks.

So instead of showing off some of my creations I want to share some of my favorite bead artists

Valentine bracelets...winners announced

Esfera Jewelry Valentine bracelet give-away

In January one of my favorite online bead suppliers SmittenBeads organized a Valentines challenge.
These were my entries for this challenge. And amazing...I won a price. I won the third price with the heart bracelet. I'm still dancing full of joy. And to celebrate this with you, I decided to giveaway one of the bracelets. 
The only thing you had to do was leave a comment.
Today I have picked not one...but two winners!!!!

Valentine challenge and give-away

Esfera Jewelry Valentine bracelet give-away

One of my New Years resolutions for 2013 is to participate in challenges and blog hops. In January one of my favorite online bead suppliers SmittenBeads organized a Valentines challenge.
Participants could buy the Valentine challenge pack and make with it what they wanted. You only knew what was in the package the moment you received it. If you wanted you could use some of your own supplies as well. But the big challenge was to use as much of the package as possible.
The big reveal is today.

Art bead earring challenge

Esfera Jewelry earrings with ceramic beads from Bo Hulley

This is the very first time I’m participating in a challenge and I cannot express how exited I am. And a bit worried as I have committed myself to create one pair of earrings every week, containing art beads, for the coming 13 weeks.

Jewelry makeover part 1

How about freshen up some old, unsold, designs? That’s what I thought, rummaging through my collection of handmade jewelry. Some designs could do with a nice makeover.
