We are really thrilled that our customers take the time to email us with photos of their creative projects. It is really fun to see what people order and imagine what they are designing, and when we get to have a peek at how our talented customers put everything together it is just the icing on the cake:)

We are going to feature some of their beautiful work for you over the coming weeks-starting with the creative team of Nancy Bradford and Michael Gore of John Gore Jewelry.

Nancy is a self-confessed beadaholic (a woman after my own heart) and we are not sure whether she loves the art of beading or collecting the beads more:) She must have the largest collection of Swarovski Crystal this side of the Prairies!

They use a wide variety of beads, findings and techniques to create a range of pieces at their home studio in Fergus, Ontario. We ADORE the piece pictured above, using a variety of glass and miracle beads. The eye-popping pendant is made using one of our huge 24mm Miracle Beads.

We also love this beautiful earring and bracelet set, using Swarovski Pearls, large bicones and beaded embellishment. Although elegant and formal, it could also look quite funky with a casual look too.

This classic and timeless choker is made with light grey Swarovski Pearls and has a stunning Swarovski Rivoli focal pendant.

Nancy and Michael sell many of their pieces locally and are working on their website now. If you would like any information about any of the pieces you see here, or have something in mind that you would love for them to create please contact them by email:

or by phone: 1-519-843-3357 (Ontario)
