Julsbeads Rocks!

Over the past few months I have been collecting a lot of Julianna Cannon’s (aka Julsbeads) gorgeous beads.  You know the kind of beads you buy that sit for a while on your workbench because you know that the piece you use them in needs to be extra-special to do them justice? 
That’s the kind of beads Juls creates.

So…I’ve had these beads for a while, and have finally used them in a few designs that I wanted to share with you.  This bangle/earring set features a gorgeous tangerine heart with companion beads that I’ve shared with you before:



I liked the tangerine set so much that I bought a second heart set in a deep red that I used in another bangle/earring set: 



A couple of weeks ago, my Bead Table Wednesday post featured a stunning red/orange/cream/silver bead set that I have turned into this necklace/earring/bracelet set:






And finally, I pulled out my new Crafted Findings riveting tool from FDJ tools to rivet a cool chain featuring a Julsbeads focal:




 If you are as obsessed with these beads as I am (and why wouldn’t you be – they are gorgeous!), hop on over to Juls’ Etsy shop to pick some up.  And while you are hopping, you must check out her funny, inspiring blog!

** All of these pieces will be listed in my Etsy shop soon – happy shopping!

I love julsbeads, and have bought a couple from her myself. It's so cool to see what you've done with them!!! Beautiful pieces. And I'm totally digging your riveted chain!

Molly, Every one of these pieces is gorgeous~ I love the hearts as a bangle focal and would never have thought of doing that.

My favorite is the multi colored heart set~ those coils are AWESOME with the glass.

Thanks so much for sharing your creations~ you make that glass look good!
