What I love.........

June Beach at the SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Showroom
SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Ambassadors- Laura Timmons, Kristal Wick,
 June Beach and Tammy Honaman in Tucson
One of the things that I love the most about being a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Ambassador is not only my love of all things that sparkle, being a part of this amazingly talented group of Ambassadors but I love that when I get to teach, do a make & take, a demo that I get to meet so many amazing people that I have the opportunity to meet, talk about making something sparkling & beautiful and help spread the crystal love! 

 I have met some fantastic bead store owners and artists who just by their description of their stores or studio, I want to hop on a plane and rush there to see where they inspire others,
create and have studio time with them! So many amazing & super talented artists out there!!!

I love when I have the opportunity to talk to beaders and crystal lovers 
who through the course of the conversation I realize that they have travelled from Australia, Canada, South America and  Europe.  I am touched that they are taking some of their precious time
 to spend with me talking or taking a class. Special indeed! 
I love how even with the crazy weather this year, that didn't stop anyone from wanting to learn a new technique and create something sparkling and beautiful!

So for as much as everyone loves to meet the Ambassadors at the showrooms, classes, demo's, make & take's and various other events.........we are delighted and thrilled  to have the opportunity to meet you as well and share in the crystal love!

Sparkles!  June

National Craft Month

Did you know that it is National Craft Month? 
What fun to get in there and create something fabulous for yourself, a friend, a sister or your mom! 
 I encourage you to get in there and get crafty! 

This is a necklace that I made recently, using some recycled fabric to create a beautiful flower that is the focal for the necklace then I added in the gemstones, Swarovski Elements crystals and Vintage Brass Chain. 
Cool, fun and love the upcycled flower!

The little assistants LOVE to create their own jewelry (they do like their sparkles, LOL!)
 as well as some fun baubles for their friends as well as creating door hangers,
beautiful & colorful drawings and more!
They even have their own craft box full of  chenille stems, pom pom, foam cut outs, construction paper, scissors, crayons, markers, sticky gems and much more
 (yes, lots of sparkly things are in their box in case you were wondering....) 
What a great way to have encourage their creative thoughts and ideas!

Enjoy National Craft Month!
