I'd like to introduce my brand new store on Zazzle called Beading Gem !  It's a collaborative project between mother and daughter.  I'm the one with the ideas and the shop experience, my daughter, an impoverished university undergraduate, has the Photoshop skills.

Zazzle is a clever enterprise where users and shoppers can get unique customized products.  Designers like my daughter and I upload our images to our store. Anyone in any country where Zazzle operates will be able to order and have it produced and shipped from a Zazzle store in their location. We earn a small royalty on each item sold.

The Forever Beading Collection is inspired by an actual sign I photographed in Halifax a few years ago. As you can see the construction workers had a sense of humor! 

At the time, I thought how appropriate it would be to have something like a mug or apron at home to hint to the family bead construction never really ends.  I am always working on one project or another.

Roll on a few years, and our sign now appears on various items like stickers, buttons, clothing, mugs bags, etc  - perfect gifts for beadaholics!

Here is my mug in action on my work table in my basement studio.  Yes, there is tea in it! And yes, the quality is great - the mug has been through several dishwasher cycles.

The strings of beads created for the shop banner became the Beading Gems collection.  It's not just for me. That's because we all making beading gems!  The items are all customizable so adding your name or a recipient's name is a breeze.
