Hello and welcome to this edition of Cheri’s Pickin’s where I, your wonderful host, introduce you to some fabulous sellers and their wonderful goodies! There are so many fabulous sellers onand all over the web and I am going to help you find some of them. I have asked each seller to give me a little info on themselves and their shop and at the end you will find out how you can win a free item! So, without further delay…. here is this weeks pickin’!
JoBead began in late 2007. I attended a conference that featured Wellspring International. I was so touched by what they were (and are!) doing that I began thinking about a way that I could help out the organization on an ongoing basis. Rewind back to 2006 when my sister-in-law asked me to bead her wedding dress. Over 3,000 Swarovski crystals later, she asked me to make wedding jewelry. I hopped on the internet and taught myself the basics. Wellspring and jewelry merged for me as a way to help fund them and also to help myself. I am a well-trained bargain hunter (thanks, Mom!) that needs to be creative. I don’t, however, “need” the money. After traveling extensively around the world, I’ve seen those in true “need” – the very same people that Wellspring International is helping. JoBead is a way for me to be creative, to give to those in need and for my clients to get a bargain!
What began with a simple request has now become a small business. I have my own site,http://www.jobead.com, with a catalog of customizable jewelry. The one of a kind or very limited edition pieces are listed on my Etsy site: http://www.jobead.etsy.com, with more pieces being listed daily. I can be found in a few bridal shops in the Milwaukee area and do custom work out of my home office. I am absolutely thrilled to be able to help Wellspring in this way. 100% of the proceeds for JoBead go directly to Wellspring and 100% of the donations they receive are used to directly fund projects. To see more of the wonderful work they are doing, please see:http://www.wellspringinternational.org.
