Grow Your Blog

Welcome to the Dry Gulch Beads and Jewelry Blog.  My name is Deborah and I love being involved in our 3-generation, family-owned business with my daughter and granddaughters.  Besides searching for new beads and findings (so much a very fun thing to do), we also create jewelry.  My daughter, Jennifer, runs our store and internet site.  She is also a lampworker and creates wonderful jewelry as seen in this most colorful necklace below.
Catherine, my eldest Granddaughter, runs the front of our store and takes great care of our customers and friends.   She also creates beautiful jewelry and loves, loves, LOVES metal and patina!!!!:)
My other granddaughter, Gianna, knows where EVERYTHING is in the store!!!  She pulls orders and keeps things straight... that is, when she's not creating something fun and unusal as this beautiful wire and button necklace reveals!
And then... there's me, I just love it ALL as this necklace below shows!  Everyday is new and inspiring.  There are so many wonderful ideas in jewelry making.  It seems that I hardly have the time to get them all created... simply not enough hours in a day!
Our blog has been a great way to show and talk about our customers' projects and creations, and to describe all of the events and happenings in our store.  Our hope is to inspire creativity and bring out the artist in each and every person.  Below, we would love to share these beautiful lampwork headpins made by Jennifer with someone... we will have a drawing and that "someone" will be announced Feb 15th.
A wholehearted "Thank You", Vicki, for hosting "Grow Your Blog".  It was fun to participate in and I can't wait to visit other blogs.  Thanks to all for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment to be entered in our drawing on the 15th of Feb.
