Amazing! Artists With A Special Touch
LTD Beads & Jewelry
Here is a lady who is pursuing a childhood love...  She still has a box in her garage labeled, "Joan's Stones," which she collected as a child.  She started beading then as well, making rosaries for missions.  She spent a couple of decades in graphic arts.  All of this, and unforeseen unemployment, led her back to what she loved as a child...  beading and jewelry. 

Joan has a wonderful eye for color and balance.  This necklace consists of nuggets of turquoise, malachite, coral colored stones and sterling silver beads with silver plated, patterned, diamond-shaped focal points.  All these different colors and textures should fight with each other.  But Joan brings them together with elegance and style.
 
From the incredibly busy to simple and sublime... Lapis lazuli hearts hung on delicate and sterling silver chain.  The color of the stone itself makes these earrings so striking.  The classic styling make them timeless and never out of style.
 

Then there is this amazing bracelet, entitled Autumn Splendor.  It consists of semiprecious  stones, coral, bone and glass combined in this easy to wear casual wrap bracelet with leaves and beads dangling from the ends. 

Joan picked the title of her business because her pieces are limited in production.  Two pieces may be similar but rarely are any two pieces identical.

Please visit her wonderful blog, her website, or one of her other shops on Artfire or Bonanzle.  You'll be glad you did!
