With a name like Pearl, The Beading Gem was definitely born to be a jewelry designer.  I have been writing my highly popular and long standing blog since 2007. It is the go to place for free tutorials (original designs as well as curated), inspirational designs, tips and tricks, trends, product and book reviews – in short, sharing my passion and creativity with my large and continually growing number of followers.

Blog postings 3 times a week. Several daily social media posts predominantly on Facebook, Twitter. Very active on Pinterest. Also on Bloglovin’, Instagram and Tumblr.   Google Page Rank : PR4

Advertising and Brand Focused Content
Work with me to engage and inspire a highly targeted audience in new and exciting ways.  I typically post reviews and tutorials which are shared to my social media communities.
