The Lone Beader's E-Junkie Interview

Featured Seller of the Week on E-Junkie.info!

This week, I am proud to be featured Seller of the Week on E-Junkie.info! I had never stumbled upon this website before they contacted me. E-Junkie.info is a blog that features small business owners with special focus on self-publishing and e-commerce. I have found this to be a fascinating site & I am honoured that they chose to feature my beadwork! I hope you will stop by to read my interview. Also, check past entries to view some amazing artwork!

Beaded Purple Miniature Poodle Pin/ Pendant on Etsy

Beaded Purple Poodle Pin/Pendant. Bead embroidery on felt.

Also, check out my latest beaded dog – a purple miniature poodle! This piece is a pin that can also be worn as a pendant measuring 2″ x 2″ (5cm x 5cm). I created this diva dog by stitching tiny Japanese 15/o seed beads to felt. I really love how this one turned out. I plan to offer it in all colours of the rainbow! Please click the pic to view the listing in my Etsy shop. What kind of dog will I make next… 😉

My First Podcast Interview!

Interview Podcast with The Lone Beader on Bead Circle BeadCircle.com

My interview on BeadCircle.com!

A few weeks ago, Mandi from BeadCircle.com called to ask me some questions about my life as a beader, my bead embroidery techniques, inspirations, and my beaded plans for the future. She recorded the interview and posted it on her website as a podcast! I will admit I was kind of nervous about doing this (I’m a little shy!), but Mandi made me feel very comfortable. She is such a sweetheart! We even stayed on the phone and talked for quite a long time after the interview, too! It  was a fun experience, and what a great way to start off the week! 🙂 Please click the above screen shot to listen to the podcast. Also, be sure to leave a comment on Mandi’s post for your chance to win a FREE copy of my Intro to Basic Extreme Bead Embroidery tutorial! Thanks so much for your interest in my beadwork! Back to beading! 😀
