Julie's Jewels

Handcrafted Beaded Jewellery and Accessories


RAOK is short for Random Acts Of Kindness and this past week has been totally amazing with unexpected parcels arriving each day from members of the DUST team…

So here we go with showing what I’ve received – I hope my photo’s are up to standard, as a picture is worth a 1,000 words, so I’m going to let the photo’s do the talking.  There are plenty of links though, just click the text under each photo to go to that artist’s Etsy store.
