And now for something completely gorgeous!

Melody Murray is a bead artist. These are some of her Betsy Tacy inspired work. The beautiful necklace above is called "Herbarium" and was obviously inspired by her love for Mr. Gaston. The necklace encircling Julia's return is named "Dramatic and Mysterious" which it certainly is. The extraordinary choker at the bottom of the page is called "Murmuring Lake".

You can see more of Melody's work like "Pink Silk Necklace" and my vote for best name - "Miss Fowler's Restrained Rhinestone Necklace and Earrings Set in Brass". Melody has little stories for all her Maud inspired jewelry. She has been published on Bead & Button Website, in Step By Step Beads magazine and in Beading Bead-A-Day Calendars 2009 & 2010 for which she won second prize in 2010. She has also participated in juried exhibitions in Oregon and Washington. And we are going to be able to see all of her beautiful creations at the Convention! If you just can't wait for more feel free to visit her bead blog or her esty shop.


  1. Thanks for the write-up! Looking forward to seeing you all at my booth- and at all the fun Convention events.

  2. I love Melody's work - a true bead artist. Nice feature.

  3. Oh such beautiful necklaces. Love the books underneath.

  4. STUNNING. My boudoir cap is off to anyone who can *make* something that looks like this. I peaked with a macaroni necklace in kindergarten and left it at that. Can't wait to see the real thing at the Convention!
