The Beading Gems Journal – Tutorials!

The Beading Gems Journal – Tutorials!

Hello! And welcome to my journal. I call myself the Beading Gem because of my given name Pearl (really!) and because I love beading and jewelry. So much so in early 2005, I started my own small business offering a Design Your Own Jewelry service to local budding enthusiasts initially in Halifax and surrounds, Nova Scotia, Canada. As we have way too much fun designing jewelry at BG home parties and workshops, I found I had little time to tell the fascinating stories behind the beads and gemstones we use and about jewelry too. So it was time for another "facet" of the Beading Gem. The Beading Gem's Journal is the place for all those stories I never get to tell, melding all my passions - writing, reading,crafts,  history and science (I was then a scientist by day) into this blog. Check back often for "nuggets" of information. Better still, subscribe and don't miss a post! It's free. Go to the site click here Need beads? Visit the "beading...

Love Scrapbooking? This will help you…

Love scrap booking ? I found this guide very helpful. Visit Jennifer Gormly's webpage direct here Here's how a sketch works: A sketch is basically a plan or outline to help you get started and give you an overview of your entire project. It allows you to see how your photos will be arranged and how the different elements of your page mesh together before you even start scrapping. By using sketches you will be able to “test drive” your design deciding whether you like it before you crop a single photo allowing you to . . . Discover the Secrets to Overcoming Procrastination and Indecision As you more than likely already know, the biggest time wasters for scrappers includes indecision and procrastination. However, the minute you apply a sketch, you’ve already passed up these two monsters and your battle is half way over. With a quick glance you'll know exactly how everything will look and flow so you just “fill-in-the-blanks”. Now you can begin to see how much time...

Artisan Woodworkers! Need plans? Check this out…

Ted's Woodworking Projects Here's the BIG problem: Most plans and woodworking magazines are complete garbage. Why? They skip over many important parts, their diagrams are confusing, unclear, or even wrong and they often skip important parts. No wonder woodworking seemed so hard!

Well, luckily for you, these problems become a blessing in disguise because I have spent the last 2 years to put together a comprehensive woodworking package with a clear, detailed, step-by-step system that didn't leave anything to the imagination.

Beadroom ~ If it’s BEADS you need…

Beadroom ~ If it’s BEADS you need…

Mom loved beads. It was a September romance that didn't begin until she was about 60. She fell hard, and spent hours in classes, learning the elements of design, the intricacies of color, the craft of construction. But it was the beads themselves that she loved, passionately. When someone at a show says they love a particular bead but don't know what to do with it, I tell them that my mom would just put them in a bowl on her coffee table where the light would hit them, and just look at them. They gave her joy. Beads do that. Once I received an email from a customer who had just received her order. "Happy happy happy" she said. "I'm walking around the office humming happily." It made my day. Passion is contagious, and I was not immune. Mom and I were partners in business for about four years before she retired, and her spirit is still with us. We sell the...
