I purchased the MAKUstudio domain name last year sometime and managed to get a pseudo website up and running through GoDaddy and Website Tonight. I wasn't really that thrilled with it, so I finally switched over to The people at Weebly really make it easy to create a website! I like the look a lot better now and it didn't take me very long to create. Another one of my goals has been to add my own shopping cart. I just signed up with and was able to add a FREE shopping cart to my website! Woohoo! So, I added one item and appears that everything is working. I'm now able to accept Google Checkout and Paypal. Yippee! I'll be adding more items very soon! Check out my website when you get the chance and let me know what you think!

Raku Seed Bead Jewelry Design by MaryLou of time2cre8

What I love about creativity is exemplified in this gorgeous bead woven necklace by MaryLou of time2cre8! It never ceases to amaze me what other jewelry designers can do with my raku beads! What was once a raku magnet...transformed into this masterpiece. Great job MaryLou! I can not begin to describe the work of a bead weaver, so please visit MaryLou's Etsy shop, time2cre8, for a detailed description of her creation. There you will find much more handmade goodness as well! Thank you MaryLou for creating such beauty!

Raku Jewelry and Seed Beads...Design by PinkPoochDesigns

Well, what can I say?!!! Stunning! I just love what Staci of PinkPoochDesigns did with one of my handmade raku beads! She contacted me requesting that the beads have no holes and explained about the amazing seed bead bezels that she was going to make. So much intricate work went into this design. Staci sells her fabulous work on Etsy. To find out what Staci has to say about this spectacular necklace of hers, visit the direct link to this listing here. Thanks so much Staci for sharing your creation and for using MAKUstudio raku beads in your amazing designs!
