A Talented Husband and Wife Team

I took a long weekend! A really nice, wonderfully relaxing long weekend that was just what the doctor ordered. I don't think I've slept so much in my life!

Now that I'm back, I'd love to introduce
you to one of my Etsy BESTeam peers today. The BESTeam is an Etsy team that's dedicated to helping each other promote our handmade products and businesses. Alexanders Designs is a member, just as I am (as Bits n Beads by Gilliauna, of course).

Alexanders Designs is a husband and wife team that work together to create jewelry from Dichroic glass, fused glass, gemstones, crystals and pearls.

They have bracelets, necklaces, earrings and even rings. In fact, Skip Alexander's rings were just recently featured in the Kansas City Star Magazine!

Jenny and Skip Alexander are both glass artists and have taken a number of classes from lampworking to classes in fused glass and borosilicate glass. They've spent many hours perfecting their skills together and it shows in many of their glass art beads and pendants.
