Featured Artist: CigarBoxBeads


Cigar Box Beads is a lovely Etsy shop featuring beautiful beaded goods.

The shop owner, Marilyn, says, "I became a non-stop beadweaver when I purchased 3 vintage cigarboxes full of beads at a flea market---about 20 years ago. I'm still using those beads, plus a 'few' more I can not help but purchase!"

Her work is intricate and detailed. This bracelet is called Somewhere Over the Rainbow, a netted bracelet made with seed beads.


It must take a lot of patience to do such intricate work! I'm impressed. :-)

She also has fun supplies (like these cute pink buttons!) and other cool items in her supply shop, http://suchandsort.etsy.com/

Great work, Marilyn!
