Everything's Rosy

 I've created a romantic collection of beautiful rose, pink and floral items representing a few of the studios taking part in ArtFire Day today. There's something for everyone, including delicate jewelry, hand-knit items, an art quilt postcard, vintage platter, botanical perfume, and an embroidered guitar strap. Collections are one of the many tools on ArtFire that I love. Enjoy!

Welcome to the new Marcelle Bijoux blog!

Join me on my journey as I explore new jewelry making skills and techniques along the way to building my business designing and selling handcrafted jewelry. I'll be showing work in progress and new designs I'm working on as well as experiments with new techniques I'm learning. I'll write about my favorite materials to work with and information on the various gemstones I use. I'll also share tips and information I find helpful or interesting for handmade artisans and small businesses. I am always finding wonderful artists whose work I admire and hope to introduce you to some of them as well. Stay tuned for upcoming contests and give-aways I'm planning! Whether you are a jewelry lover, handmade fan or fellow artisan, I hope you'll find something interesting here. Feel free to share your ideas of what you'd like to see here in the comments!
