Chris Franchetti is a jewelry designer who covers all bases. She is not only the fashion jewelry editor for Bella Online's Fashion jewelry section, not only the amazing jewelry designer that has her own website chettidesigns.com and appeared on DIY "Jewelry Making" show several times teaching some fabulous designs for fun jewelry and accessories. Chris is more than that. She also owns Chetti Beads. So to sum up, Chris sells the beads and components to make jewelry, makes jewelry, writes about jewelry, and teaches jewelry. She must know a lot about the subject. She does, I assure you.
Chetti Beads is a complete site for beads and findings. Anything you'll need for a project is there. From shell buttons, to antique keys, to semi-precious beads. The prices are also very reasonable. As a jewelry designer, Chris knows what she would want to pay for beads and findings, so she offers that same consideration to her customers. Also quantity discounts are offered. If you browse through the site, you'll notice instructions on how to make projects and even information about certain beads, and the difference between Bali and Thai silver.
So go visit Chetti Beads and tell Chris I said "Hi".

It was a definite pleasure and honor to be asked by Andi of MysticSpiral Studio to incorporate some of her amazing beads into finished pieces of jewelry. Here is a picture of the Vessel bead by Andi and the beads that I chose to use for the completed piece: labradorite, dyed golden jade, and pineapple quartz.
