Featured Artist of the Month!
December’s 2012 Artist of the Month: Carrie Meyer
Carrie Meyer was born and raised in Huntington Beach, CA and now resides in the beautiful Northwest near Bellingham, WA. Although she loves being a stay at home mom, as well as being very active in the community, with both her church and children’s school, she’s always had a passion for both fashion and jewelry.
Her business started off innocently enough as she simply began making and designing fashion jewelry for her own use. However, immediately friends, family and people in general began asking where they could purchase the same pieces she was wearing. And before she knew it, Get Carrie’d Away was born which now includes a thriving on-line business.
We invite you to see Carrie’s passion in her jewelry and check out her website: Get Carrie’d Away Her goal and passion is to help provide you with emotionally rich jewelry that will make you both look and feel incredible.

June 2012 Artist Month – Susan Davis
Our first artist of the month is Susan Davis from Vancouver, WA.
Not only is she a very talented artist, she is also my sister. Her jewelry style is SteamChic. Susan takes found objects like hardware, antique pieces, watch parts, fishing spinners, charms etc and re-purposes them into her unique jewelry.
To be featured as the Artist of the Month, email a picture or pictures to Linda at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are selected, you will be featured in our front window as the Artist of the Month. We would like to add your picture and a short bio about you. We can pick a selection of your pieces to display and show for you for that month.
Having different featured artists each month is a great way for us all to see what can be done with beads. It is not necessary that it be jewelry or only use beads from our shop. Of course, we would love it if you used at least some of our beads, but it is not a requirement to be our Artist of the Month.
