I wanted to thank all you girls who attended the fabulous Girls Night Out event.  I was glad to hear the photo booth was fun and created smiles and memories. I was very thankful to be able to show my handmade beaded jewelry designs to you.  I am grateful for all the jewelry pieces that were sold.  I hope you are all enjoying them and thinking on the wonderful night spent with friends. 

At Abundant Trove I can custom size and design unique beaded jewelry pieces.  For example, you may visit my jewelry shop and see a bracelet or necklace but would like the piece  to be longer or shorter.  Just ask me because in most sizing situations I can accommodate you.  I really enjoy creating the beaded jewelry designs but also take pleasure in creating a perfect fit and piece that delights the person who will wear my jewelry. 

As Christmas approaches and you need gifts whether for a gift exchange or multiple favors please keep Abundant Trove handmade beaded jewelry in mind.  I would love to receive your business.  Also, I am taking orders for handmade beaded bookmarks for teacher appreciation gifts.  Please contact me if you are interested.  You may want to read my blog on beaded bookmarks to see some designs.  I do still have millifiore glass hearts and foil glass hearts.

Thank you, Judie,  for hosting Girls Night Out and to all of you who came!!!




Beautiful design in handmade beaded jewelry bookmarks!

The heart is Millefiori (thousand flower) hand-blown glass.  It is a black background which makes the colorful flowers pop.  A Carnelian rounded stone nicely accents the green glass and vintage silver beads.  The tiny seed beads are multi-colored with the rich hues of gorgeous peacock feathers mostly in greens.

Handmade beaded bookmarks make great gifts for the special book reader in your life.  My girls and I have enjoyed making beaded bookmarks for gifts, each other, and for fun.  Three out of the four of us in our family are book reader enthusiasts so it just seemed a natural expression of our love of reading and beautiful things.  I have been commissioned by my sister to design beaded bookmarks for her reading club.  She informed me they all were very excited over them which of course made me very happy for my sister and myself.  I really am thrilled when someone is happy with their purchase from me.  One year my other sister purchased about a dozen and used them for teacher gifts and for an unexpected moment when you want to present someone with a special little something. 

Beaded bookmarks can be for men too.   I have made them for the men in my life and was able to use chunky beads on the ends for a more masculine appeal.  My husband’s was tenderly made with seedbeads that reminded me of sparkling water.  John 7:38 “Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”   The paua shell bird was to represent the Holy Spirit, the large chunk turquoise is God  because He is the rock that holds all things together, the green chunky stone next to the turquoise for a reminder to keep growing in Him.  I balanced the other side with some smaller chunky stones.  He uses this bookmark in his Bible and said it touched his heart to receive it and  he thinks of me with fondness every time he uses it.

         It is wonderful to bring sentiment to gifts because your heart reaches towards another and joyfully holds out an offering.  I enjoy thinking and creating with purpose.  I can custom design handmade beaded bookmarks for you.  You may contact us and describe what you are thinking of, the price range, and if you need quantities we may be able to accommodate you.  Beaded bookmarks start around $8.50 and can go up from there depending on the beads chosen in the design.

 Abundance is a handmade beaded bookmark from a loved one!
