I LOVE instagram! Its such a great visual platform. It's so easy to updated and keep in touch with clients. I could go on and on but I'll just leave it at that for now. I'm really into the stories part of Instagram as of late. Cool snippets and videos that disappear after 24 hours or keep them on your page by adding to your highlights, genius! Such a great way for me to add these highlighted sections to my insta without having to do a post, perfect for those limited edition or one of a kind pieces that don't get listed to my online store. I have highlighted sections for earrings, necklaces, bracelets, process, events and studio views. Check them out and let me know if there's something that's calling your name. :)
I was scrolling through my stories and came across a story post from beadedjewelry_of_insta called 25 REASONS MULTI STRAND BRACELETS ARE SO FUN AND VERSATILE, I mean who doesn't want to click on that, fun, versatile, I'm in! So glad I did as the visual inspiration on their blog really got my design ideas flowing! The colors, arrangements and styles by all the jewelry designers were all so different and inspiring. I love a stack of bracelets but don't love fussing with more than one clasp on my wrist. Anyone else with me on this??? I can usually get away with this by layering with stretch stone bracelets or by adding a cuff. So when I saw this blog post about the Multistrand bracelets I was like BAM there it is! I'll do these with a toggle clasp for easy on and off and incorporate the layers with a mix of brass and stones as well as these little vintage delicate enameled pailettes that I've been dying to use. I'm super pleased with the results and so far have had quite a few oohs and ahhs via direct message so I'm pretty sure these will be a great one this holiday season!
Thank you A Beaded Life for inspiring this new design for me. I'll be sure to take a closer look in the new year after all the holiday show madness is over. Will be a great start to the new year!
