Allegory Gallery Blog

Bead and Craft Bloggers

Did you know that Allegory Gallery began with humble origins in the blogging community?  Before the brick and mortar, there was an online shop and blog.  As we got wrapped up in the day to day operations of the store, the blog sort of took a back seat, but we wanted to get back into the flow of things and promote other bead and craft bloggers of distinction.

Ann Schroeder of BeadLove shares a recent creation featuring a striking color scheme of black and white.  Her necklace incorporates several art bead components from the likes of Jenny Davies-Reazor and SagaHus Components.

What an amazing project!  Tammy, the incomparable Crafty Princess, works her magic on finishing a family heirloom that her grandmother started.  Some of our favorite craft projects are the ones that connect our histories, hearts, and hands.

Using the inspiration of Pantone's Pink Lavender, Cyndi elevates a button with bead embroidery and turns it into a pendant.  You can do it too!  Cyndi shares a tutorial on how you can make your very own!

Working with the July prompt from the Artisans Create Together group, Sarajo Wentling of Sj Designs produced several stellar jewelry pieces featuring a heavenly array of suns, moons, and stars.

Sometimes running a small business, let alone a craft-based business, can be daunting. Andrew shares how Allegory Gallery embraced the challenge and how their hard work paid off!  Allegory Gallery was recently recognized by SCORE as one of the 2018 American Small Business Champions.
