We are so proud to have her as a member as she not only does beautiful, extremely well made jewelry, Sarah Palin is a big fan of her work and wears her pieces quite frequently. The earrings she has offered up are not bead embroidered, but are rather bead woven and something she teaches in classes.  This particular style she has titled, “Night at the Opera”.  You will want to be sure and check out her work in her shop on

Posted on

Marie Mccurry is the winner of our free giveaway.  Please contact me Marie as soon as you can!

Back in action.  Today we are posting our first free giveaway to help promote our members’ work. This is a pair of lovely mother of pearl earrings with light blue freshwater pearls added for enhancement. These are very light comfortable earrings with sterling silver ear wires.

Made by Carolyn Turner, Fireweed Jewelry and Gifts,

Native American made earrings, Mother of Pearl with Freshwater Pearls


They are just in time for those pastel color springtime fashions hanging in all the stores right now.  I did notice there are some materials being used with flowers on them, but mostly solid colored clothing.  These earrings would be a perfect match to wear this summer. I really do like the springtime fashion colors this year, mostly soft pinks, blues and even whites.

All you need to do to sign up to win these eye catchers is leave a comment below.  I also need you to give me a way to contact you whether an email address or phone number to call so that I can notify you when you win. We did about 5 of these in the past. No strings attached, just make a comment below this page.  There will be a random drawing of names, one entry per person, members of the guild cannot sign up. But you can recommend any and all friends and even family members to make a comment.  We will have the drawing on May 6th, 2016.  I will contact the winner and if I do not hear back from them within a week, we do another draw.  Believe it or not that has actually happened before.

Good luck to all and be sure and tell your friends and family.

Have a blessed day!

Good afternoon! Happy news.  I am happy to say our blog is now going to be back in full swing again.  OH how I have missed writing this and sharing EBEG members’ work and giving free pieces away.  I have a lot of new ideas of things to talk about and do on here.

owl necklace


This is a painted mother of pearl pendant.  It comes with a soft black velvet adjustable necklace.  You could even swap out the black necklace with a silver chain or any other type of necklace.  You might use a wider type of ribbon, perhaps another black one or purple would like nice as well.

All you have to do to be entered in the drawing is to make a comment below and make sure to leave your contact information.  If you sign up to receive our blog, you can put your email address in at that time.  We do not use your information for any other purposes. We do not share our lists of contacts with any one else. Feel free to tell your family and friends about this drawing.  The only stipulation is that members of the guild are not allowed to enter.  Unfortunatly in one drawing we had, we tried to contact  the winner and never received a response and so then we had to draw another name.  Because of this we will give you 3 days to respond before we have to draw another name. We will also announce the winner here on our blog on October 15, 2015.

GOOD DAY everyone!

I am so happy to announce I am going to start working on the  EBEG  blog again.  I still have some personal issues at hand to deal with, but I now have a bit more time to work with our guild and try to get things back on track again.  I at least have time to post here on the blog. We will be starting things again with a new giveaway.  I will be posting it very soon. So please, be on the lookout.  You won’t want to miss this “Early Fall”  freebie.  That’s all I can say for now.

Thanks to all who have participated in the past and I hope you be sure and check back in a couple of days. The item being given away will be a piece that can be worn by anyone and is a great Fall themed item.

I also want to say thank you to the members who have continued to post items on our Facebook page.   Your work continues to astonish me.  I need to say thanks too for the awesome well wishes I received. My life, like many of yours I am sure, is very complicated right now.  For now I can at least work on this blog which I feel is a really important part of EBEG.  I will be happy when I am back at home and beading again.

Very Sincerely,

Carolyn Turner
