Fun, Funky, and FABULOUS! - A BESTeam Feature

Take a pinch of funky, stir in a hearty dollop of fun, and add a heaping helping of heart & soul - mix them all together and you have a recipe for FABULOUS! And that's exactly what EllesBeads is... a fabulous collection of jewelry and accessories infused with color, style, and an energy all their own!

A paralegal by day and artisan by passion, Elle, the creative spirit behind EllesBeads and just one of my wonderful teammates on BEST, joins the handmade community from North Carolina. An advocate of handmade, she believes in creating beauty from simple elements and often uses her gift for doing so by upcycling and repurposing vintage jewelry and fabric. Not only does she sell her handmade goodies, but she practices what she preaches by trying to buy handmade and repurposed whenever possible.

A shopping trip through EllesBeads will delight you with a lovely assortment of bold and fun statement pieces, like her Turquoise Glass Beaded Adjustable Cluster Ring ...

entice you with flirty and feminine accessories like this adorable Fresh Fuchsia and Green Floral Fabric Barrette ...

or inspire nostalgia with charming vintage inspired items like her Antique Gold Jeweled and Beaded Dangle Earrings. They remind me of the jewelry glamorous stars like Bette Davis, Josephine Baker, and Elizabeth Taylor wore during their Hollywood heydays!

Elle offers these and many more styles that are enchanting, playful, and downright sexy - but I think I'll make you visit EllesBeads to see what else she has to offer to suit all the facets of your personality!

You know I love a good blog - and if you do too, you'll enjoy The Elle's Beads Blog. A resource for both customers and fellow artisans alike, visit and you'll find Elle's takes on major fashion trends and artisan resources, as well as previews and updates of what Elle is selling and creating! Since she's a member of four Etsy teams and also works hard at staying up to date on marketing strategies, you'll also see many of her posts geared towards helping others in achieving their promotional goals too!

You can also find her on: Facebook and Twitter too! And if you live in the Durham, NC area, check out a shop there called Hunky Dory where you can see Elle's work in person! Tell them Elle's Beads sent you!

I'll be back a little later with my color feature of the day - seurat blue!

See ya soon!
