Hey, everyone! Here's another fun feature for you: Bits 'n Beads by Gilliauna on Etsy! Bits 'n Beads is a partnership shop with the more vocal Leal at the helm. Leal (a 23-yr-old college student) lives in Washington State and has partnered up with good friend Gilliauna (also of Washington State) to bring you quality handcrafted jewelry. I have to say, I'm a little partial to those WA people, of my home state!
I just love the colors on this pretty charm, which could be used on a cell phone, zipper, or wallet.
How about this neat necklace? Anything with a lock and key motif is popular right now! The accent beads on this piece just seem to give it that something extra special.
One of the most popular items in this shop is the wire wrapped earrings. The ear wires are hand shaped, and the teardrop briolettes hand wrapped. These go with anything and have a sparkle that can't be beat. Not to mention the fabulous color! I love anything amber! (Although they do come in many other colors.)
Don't forget, Bits 'n Beads strives to be environmentally conscientious by cleaning and reusing as many parts as they can from older vintage pieces.
