This weeks Shop feature is Calluna Muse by Heather. She designs some wonderful earrings using beads and Nymo nylon thread. Pretty neat if you ask me.

2. Tell us a little bit about your shop and what you think makes it unique?
I wanted it to be a different take on beaded
jewelry. I've done it all my life and I was
looking for a modern feel. Some
new designs and a different twist on older designs. I think it has a nice
feel between being on par with current
trends but also allowing you to be
unique and maybe also start your
own trends! And who doesn't want
to be a trendsetter!

I really love "The Faith" earrings because of the way
they dangle, it reminds me of fireworks
falling from the sky!

Sushi. Which is funny because I didn't start eating it until a few years ago, and now I am
