Dyed Howlite Green
Middleton Artist, Jill of Stone Bliss Designs is known for her wired-wrapped beaded earrings. Teal or any blue/green shade is her go-to color. Earrings can take her anywhere between five minutes up to an hour to complete, based on the complexity of her designs. A necklace could take her as long as an afternoon to complete. Jill has been very interested in trying dot painting which she plans on incorporating into her jewelry. Beyond jewelry, Jill also knits â you can find her fingerless mittens at craft shows. For our up-and-coming artists, Jill advises that you can find your own style and stick to it. Donât be ashamed of your style if itâs different from current trends, but donât be afraid to try new things too. The best advice I heard from another jewelry maker wasâ¦â Itâs not what you add, itâs what you take away,â the idea being, and that less is more. Her most extensive work was a knit throw piece called African Adventure â it took a couple of years to make. Jill purchases all of her beads in person at Beed shows.
