Hi, my name is Linda and I'm passionate about using colors and gemstone characteristics in my unique beaded jewelry designs. I've been beading for about 4-5 years now. I work full-time and find beading to be relaxing and fun. I love color and what the colors symbolize and create one-of-a-kind, unusual designs of handbeaded gemstone and glass pendants, bracelets, earrings, beaded bookmarks, rings, beaded keychains and car mirror jewelry. Also, I enjoy working with you on more conventional custom orders. My designs are for adults only and not for children under 13. If you'd like me to make something for your child, convo me and I'll find safe, compliant beads and other materials to use. My inspiration comes from the beads, colors, gemstone characteristics. I also read Bead Style magazine and adapt the designs to be my own. My husband and cats don't mind my obsession, except when it's dinner time for the cats. One cat, Buddy, likes to help me bead and list items on the computer too. I'm excited to be a part of the EtsyBead Team, the EtsyTwitter Team, the EtsyBlogger team and new team leader of the EtsyChai Team. Please check out my blog at http://linorstorecom.blogspot.com and my Website at http://LinorStore.com and my shop at http://linostore.1000markets.com. I also have other online presences at http://facebook.com/linorstore and http://twitter.com/lindab142. Your positive and constructive comments are welcome. Happy Shopping! Linda B.

Over the years, I have developed a Unique Acrylic Pouring Technique™ that animates my explorations of Abstract Expressionism. This technique comes to life when the acrylic paint is mixed with water and, literally, poured onto the canvas, creating free-flowing shapes and forms. Many years of experience and experimentation allows me to control the, otherwise, uncontrollable flow of paint. This unique technique also allows me to maintain the purity and freshness of my colors.
I have exhibited at numerous California galleries and On-line Galleries. My work can also be found in many private and corporate collections around the country and abroad.
Born in Russia, I successfully completed Moscow's School of Art and hold an AA Degree in Graphic Design. I am presently living in northern California where I continue to explore and develop my artistic vision."

Yes! It is ready, and is perfect. So soft yarn and colors catching eyes.

First of all I choose the yarn. It depends of how I am feeling this day. My favorite yarns are colorful with different shades, sparkles, threads, commonly playful colored. They look nice with almost all colors of top wear.
For me etsy is something special. It is a pleasure of handmaking my items, a delight of selling and promoting them, an enjoyment of searching and looking at other etsy shops. I like sending my happiness and positive energy, and if I can make even a single man, woman or child happy for a minute, it would be a real treat for me.
