Back in the spring, a fantastic group was started on facebook for all of us jewelry making addicts by two lovely jewelry artist, Melinda Orr and Marla James. This group aptly named "Creative Bead Chat" is made up of a wonderful group of people who like to make jewelry, all kinds of jewelry and components. It is a group where friendships are made, information is shared, and wonderful eye candy is shared. This group has provided me with new friendships, inspiration and information on a daily basis and I am so grateful to the two lovely women who started this group Melinda Orr and Marla James.
I only knew Melinda through a few purchases that at had made from her Etsy store, Orrtec. I had purchased some copper components through Melinda after seeing some of her gorgeous jewelry and a tutorial that she had posted on her blog Orrtec Blogspot. I became acquainted with Marla James only after this group was started and she is a hoot. A lot of fun is had by all. In addition to these two wonderful gals, this group is also supported by Karen Totten, Marla Gibson and Keirsten Giles.
As our way of saying thanks for all the work these gals do to keep this group together and for making it so much fun to be a part of, we're setting aside today as Administrator Appreciation Day. I would be thrilled if you would check out each of their stores. I'm sure that you won't be disappointed with what you see in each of these shops.
Marla Gibson is having some health issues so a special hug and thoughts are sent her way. Her shop is closed during this time so check out her blog and send special prayers her way.
