Have you ever tried to start your own at home business? I have. And I totally failed. It was about 8 or 9 years ago. I tried getting into Mary Kay. I love their company, products, etc. But I had a really hard time getting started. So when I get the chance to help a friend get started in an at-home business I totally jump.
My real life friend, Jenny, just opened up her Etsy shop JuJuBeads2. She makes some absolutely beautiful jewelry! If you're like me, you love jewelry with a story. It's so much better than I bought it at a so-and-so store you can find anywhere. And I love when it's handcrafted. Handcrafted jewelry just feels incredibly more satisfying to wear. Don't ask me why, it just does. Am I the only one who feels that way?
Jenny uses all different kinds of beads from glass to pearl to shell, metal
and loves semi precious beads. Her favorite beads are called goldstone. She also works with glass crystals and Swarovski crystals. She does a good bit with chain and loves using kumihimo techniques. And if you are like me and have no idea what kumihimo is, it's a braiding technique used when working with beads.
Anyway, take a look at some of the jewelry from her shop over at JuJuBeads2.
Don't you just need that special touch to finish off your Easter ensemble??
