We have some amazing jewelry makers among us at the B'sue Boutiques Creative Group.

Andrea Schubert participated in our Winter Class, where one of the projects was a take-off on a butterfly necklace I made twenty years ago and never repeated.

Below is Andrea's version of that project:

Andrea's design is a case study of excellent balance in an assemblage statement piece. You can also see what care she put into the colorization work. She used Lunar Paste and Perfect Pearls over (mostly) matte black findings to do the job you see here. I think it's totally INSPIRING!

Both matte black and brass ox take color well. Normally I tell you, don't bother with plated pieces, just buy raw, it will be cheaper for you. In this case I have to say matte black and brass ox bases lend a lot of dimension and depth to the color you place on the components.

Try it some time! Click above to

find matte black stampings, and


To discover Lunar Paste as well as Perfect Pearls for colorization. (We have Solar Paste, too....but Lunar is what you want in this case...it's very much like the old Inka Gold we used to carry.)


Have you seen last Wednesday's video yet?

Our improved format of teaching first, chatting later worked out great. Many say they like it much better! I do, too....it helps me to stay on the subject and not lose my place while teaching.

I showed you in the last newsletter how the satin gold filigree 'hand flowers' turned out.


I thought, hmm, I'd like to have a pair for myself...but now that my hair is silvery white/blonde, gold isn't so good on me...bright silver IS.

So I made a pair from the handsome luggage tag stampings we have at the website....see below:

I got a shipment of Czech beads from a new supplier. I wanted to see how it went so I didn't get alot...sigh...wish I had bought more. I love them!

Guess who will be making a new order this weekend? It takes about three weeks to get them.

I've sold most of the ones above, but below is the one I kept for myself. I love to wear it and it gets a lot of attention, too!

We have a number of beautiful semi precious 40x30mm cab stones that just came in stock this week.

A lot of places have beads....not so many have the big stone cabs.

I think great focals like these are a must!

We still have a great stock of most of the new bead mixes I made a week or so ago.

My favorite is Cherry Bomb, as you see below. So many stand-out goodies in that one!

CLICK on the photo and find it fast.

Exotica is an amazing, textural melange of beads that work together. Some are vintage, some are new acrylic.

I haven't had time to work with it yet but am looking forward to it!
