Magic Beads

We've all heard the story of Jack and the Beanstalk with those famous magic "beans", right?  Well, we now make magic "beads"! Quite a few of our designs have come about by being the off spring of something else, so why shouldn't "magic" beads result from our 3 Year Beads? I guess I need to explain this one. I work as a special needs paraeducator at an elementary school as my "day" job. This job sometimes requires more creativity than making our jewelry. I have been working with a student on and off for two years that loves our jewelry....

Kentucky Crafted, Bead Necklace Class #2, and North Carolina!

Our first show of the year, Kentucky Crafted: The Market 2016 is now a wrap. I will say this was truly the best of the three years we've participated. We hope that this becomes the trend for the year. Things just felt right this time. The booth after many tweaks and 20 or so shows in the past 3 years was at its best. Almost every show we've done, the booth has in some way been different. Many times it has to be because we never know how we may have to adjust due to the location we've been given or the...

New Show Season

We're trying to get the hang of blogging, but we let other things get in the way. It's the beginning of our show season so we are both consumed with creating new pieces, updating wholesale line sheets, prepping for wholesale orders, and refreshing our show booth and displays. Our display tables, crates and jewelry displays taking a beating over any show season. Last year was a particularly busy and harsh weather season. We did about 12 shows in lots of rain, wind and extreme heat. Our first show last year, Kentucky Crafted went on despite mounds of snow. We can...

Over three years ago Diana and I stepped into a journey of artistic creation to establish Bspoken Designs.  Creating polymer clay jewelry offers an endless possibility of design limited only to the imagination.  We continue to push the limits of our design and refine what we have already established.  This website is the next step of our journey, and welcome feedback on how to improve what we have created.  One of our favorite things is the interaction and comments we receive at the shows we attend.  We love talking to the diverse community about how we create and what everyone...
