Bead Lovers Korner *Review & Giveaway

 Bead Lovers Korner was founded in 2002 by Cari Anne Kosanke and has been going strong since!

Gari has created a massive variety of items at Bead Lovers Korner and on her Etsy site. One of her latest creations is the Crystal Cross Thong Bookmark (this shows the green, mine is blue)

This handcrafted bookmark is the perfect holiday gift for your book lover! It easily lays along the spine of the book with the cross on one end, and the bead on the other. These can be designed in a variety of color. It is simple, yet makes a statement of love for a friend or family member.

I also received these delicate Swarovski Cream Pearl earrings. These are simple and elegant, and so light weight it doesn't even feel like you are wearing them! I love earrings like these for a feminine touch without having to be all decked out.

These are so incredibly comfortable that I can wear them for several days without even taking them out. I used to visit a bead shop when I was in college and design earrings. This style is exactly the type I loved to make. They make a fashion statement simply by being small and elegant.

If you are curious about different type of beads then Bead Lovers Korner is the place to get hooked up. Gari knows her beads for sure. I had the opportunity to browse her website and was amazed that there were so many categories of beads such as Carlo Biagi Jewelry and Landmark Beads compatible with Pandora, Chamilia, Troll and other European style bracelets.
