In no particular order, here are the new members of the Suburban Girl Studio Design Team:
Congratulations everyone and welcome to the team! I'll be contacting you all shortly via email with some information.
And thank you to everyone who entered! Next year we will do this all over again!

Shop update will begin early this afternoon.
(If you are looking for the "Design Team Call For Members" post, scroll down a bit.)
I've decided it's finally time to put together a Suburban Girl Design Team. I currently have three members and am seeking three more! Design Team members will participate in 4 challenges (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter) throughout the year. I'll send you beads and you will create a piece of jewelry/accessory incorporting them and beads from your own stash. All members will reveal their work on their blogs on a set date.
If you would like a chance to be randomly selected (via the paper-in-hat method) here's what you need to do:
You can enter until next Wednesday (2/22/12) at midnight EST. I'll announce all the team members on my blog on 2/23/12.
Thank you for your interest and good luck!
Feast your eyes upon the bead soup goodness that I got from my swap partner, Cheryl Brown...
I asked her to challenge me with color and she sure did! I'm super excited to work with all these yummy beads and I'm already envisioning earrings, a bracelet and a necklace for the reveal. Here's to hoping I can get to them all in time!
My bead soup FINALLY arrived at Cheryl's house yesterday which means I can reveal what I sent.
So, inside her package of soup-goodness was porcelain pendants, links and beads made by yours truly, coral nuggets, faceted rose quartz, vintage lucite, fairy silk, sari silk, a rhinestone toggle and a Swarovski crystal magnetic clasp.
I can't wait to see what she makes!
PS Canada Post, hurry up and get my bead soup here I'm dying to play!
To celebrate the NY Giants winning the Superbowl I'm offering 20% off your purchase (does not include shipping) in either of my Etsy shops when you enter code: NEISCRYING at checkout! Plenty of spring-themed porcelain pieces and rustic raku pieces are availale! Sale ends late tomorrow night!
There's nothing that makes me happier than seeing my beads used in another artist's finished jewelry. So here are a few pieces recently made by Suburban Girl fans that brought a big smile to my face...
A gorgeous necklace by Swallowtail Jewellery featuring bone, wood, czech glass and Suburban Girl copper patina porcelain beads.
A whimsical, ephemera pendant necklace by Hippie Chick Jewelry & Design featuring chunky Suburban Girl beads.
A beautiful brass chain necklace by Grace Elements Jewelry featuring czech glass, ceramic rounds by Gaea and a Suburban Girl raku heart pendant.
Thank you ladies for sharing your work!
If you've used Suburban Girl beads in your jewelry and you'd like to be featured on my blog please send me an email! I'd love to show off your creations!
