If Beads and Findings are on Your List...

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 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".

Pretty Pictures

I've been working really hard on my picture editing skills and have been really happy with the results. Soon, all of the pictures on my website will have a clear, white background. Many already do. This makes me happy.
