Design Gallery announcement

Posted by Steve on September 21 at 11:48 am

jewelry displayTo all designers (everyone reading this blog, right? :) )… I have a short announcement about the Design Gallery. Some people have expressed a desire to share their displays, spreads, and booths from craft shows. We wanted to give these pictures a home of their own, so we created a new “Displays” area in the gallery. If you’ve got a display to share (or any other jewelry you’ve made lately), head on over to the gallery and add your design!

We’ll surely be adding more categories to the Design Gallery in the future. Do you have any ideas of what the categories should be? Remember, we’d like to keep everything focused on beading and jewelry, so we’re primarily looking at wearable, beading related ideas. We’d love to know what you think for the future!

    Oh my gosh – what incredible timing!! I have been asked to do a jewelry show for the teachers at a local school and I have been a nervous wreck trying to figure out display techinques!! I am grateful for any suggestions – especially the kind that cost little to nothing to put together:)

    How about a “Pendants” category? :D

    Great idea, Steve! :D

    How about a category for “Tips”? This would be different from the instructions that get posted on the individual designs in the Gallery. :D

    Why are “comments closed” on Jeanne’s display? Inquiring minds want to know…… ;)

    Steve, I like Lynn’s suggestion for a “Tips” category. This would prove beneficial for those of us interested in learning new techniques.

    Wow… this is awesome. I have my first “jewelry party” end of October… I’m so nervous about it!
    If anyone has any pictures or tips on that, please please please pass on… I’ll be much appreciative!

    I think Lima is going to have an overload from all of us beaders out there pretty soon is what I think. we all have so much to add. I’m making a decorative piece with drift wood and shell beads to hang, so if there’s a category for odds and ends maybe. There are endless things I can imagine to do with beads. On clothing but I haven’t it yet tried yet, my mother does quilting too.

    What a great idea! And great timing too! I’ve been looking at different websites and trying to figure how to set up a booth this weekend! I’ve done craft shows in the past but this will be my first for jewelry. Thanks so much!

    I definitely think a category for wirework would be a good idea! :D

    Tips would be greatly appreciated. I know a lot of people ask for information about specific designs and many “tips” are shared there, but never get seen by “all” because there are just too many awesome designs (and that means all of them!) to view and comment on. I personally went into overload and now just view things. How could we move the tips shared in the designs section to general tips??? I just knew you needed a new challenge, Steve!!!

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    If anyone can handle the challenge, it’s Steve!!! Steve, Steve, he’s our man! If he can’t do it, no one can!!! :D :D :D

    HELP!!! I love this idea, but I can’t get my new display pictures into the Display category. It keeps going into miscelaneous. How do I get it where it need to be?

    Steve says:

    Hi Harriet,
    I just sent you a message in the Garden about this. I’ll help you out.

    I think this was before I found Lima Bead site. I just thought since it had displays highlighted it might have the pictures of peoples displays.
