Today I have another home decor frame project from CHA to share with you. I created this frame using Vintaj Sizzix products and it was displayed in the Sizzix booth in the Vintaj display. It sure was great to have a picture of Jack at the show on display so that when I missed my pup a little I could take a quick peek at him!
This frame looks like it is involved but really, it was a very quick project. I love that for just a little bit of time I was able to create something so unique and give new life to a clearance aisle photo frame!

Sometimes one of our themes calls out for a certain art bead artist, and Celtic Stone is one of them! Clay River Designs from Colorado was the only choice for us…we’re happy they agreed to the partnership! We wanted to learn more about Fred & Deb Becker & they obliged, making us want to go to Colorado immediately and work with them in this adorable studio!
Clay River Designs is a home-based cottage business located in Roggen, Colorado. Fred & Deb started their bead design business in 1973. With a move to the country, they decided to research niches in the market to be able to work from home. Having a desire to use their joint drawing and design talents, the company Clay River Designs came into being. Using high-fire porcelain they started designing macrame’ beads. Over the years customer requests led them to design jewelry beads and focal pendants, which has become their main product line. They are currently marketing their hand-made products at trade shows across the country, their website, and selling directly to bead shops and jewelry designers.
How often do you get to design jewelry?
We seem to be more centered around designing the bead products we make, but are trying to work in more time to really enjoy the designing process utilizing our beads and mixing them with other complimentary pieces. We feel our porcelain pendants work beautifully with the Vintaj brass findings and accessories.
See what we’ve made using their hand-painted porcelain beads & pendants in our Idea Gallery, like Jess’s Celtic Knot bracelet!
Deb is currently working on a brand new website to make purchasing Clay River Designs even easier! Stay tuned for the launch date! Visit their current website HERE!
Want to know a secret? One of the keys to Vintaj style is the intricate DecoEtch details, mixed metals and ornate filigree which make this simple necklace & bracelet design stand out!
