Happy April Everyone

Spring is finally here and I am so thankful for the beautiful weather and the renewal of life that the season brings.

The budding of the trees and flowers and the sweet sounds of the returning birds fills me with not only a sense of peacefulness but also with an abundance of creative thoughts and dreams.

Part of my 3 and 5 Year Business Plans were to develop my own style and build a dependable brand myself and for all of you too. 

It has taken a while, but I think the Blog is starting to have a nice flow and the website and shop are coming in line with my Vision and plans for the business. 

The Website

I am so happy to report that The Alluring Bead Boutique is doing so much better this year.

Thanks to all of you who visit and take the time to read my posts, shop my patterns and support me on all my Social Media Channels. 


The Alluring Bead Boutique has had more visitors in the first three months of this year than in the previous two combined. 

In the next few months, there will be a few more pages coming to the site.

A new Reference Page is in the works and it is where you will find tons of useful infographics, charts and links. 

My hope is that this page will help you in your Jewelry making journey.

My Affiliates Page will feature links to many of the products and services that I use here on my website.

The goal of this page is to guide you in the back office portion of your Jewelry Business.

Jewelry Sales

I have been having a lot of success selling my designs on Amazon Handmade and am participating in the Prime Program as well as providing Free Shipping on my items in The Alluring Bead Boutique Shop on Amazon Handmade. 

Make sure to check out my Mother’s Day Sale from April 15th through May 4th.

Wild Roses Vine Necklace Tutorial

My adaptation of Donna Graves “Inviting Vine Bracelet Pattern.

For the Necklace, I made several changes to the bead sizes and I added an Ombre effect to the leaves and florals.  The full Materials list is provided in the Video.
