Beads by L'hox - quality hand crafted Jewelry
Welcome to Beads by L'hox.
So it all started with Pinterest. If you haven't been there, you will love that website. I love creating and seem to have had in the past, a sort of A.D.D. of hobbies. I would try one craft for a few days, maybe a week and then find something new that interested me.
Since leaving less of a carbon footprint on this earth for my grandchildren (that I hope to have someday) and the future generations was very important to me. I started looking at things you could make out of magazines. You see I had received a whole bunch of free magazines subscriptions and they were really stacking up. But I couldn't bring myself to just throw them away.
The magazine crafts led to this lens: Top Ten Crafts made from Magazine Pages. But once I made my first paper magazine beads, and saw the beautiful designs and colors that each bead has...how unique each one was, I had to make something out of them.
Ten necklaces, two pair of earrings and two bracelets later...combined with the inspiration of the beautiful quality glass, crystal and semi precious stone beads and a ton of jewelry making supplies that I have purchased I knew I had to open a Etsy Shop.
Each and every piece I have created I love and would love to wear. This inspired me to want to share them with others.
I hope you enjoy the designer jewelry created by "Beads by L'hox".
