Welcome to the Artisan Beaders Holiday Gift Guide!

The Artisan Beaders Street Team has come together to present our choices for the perfect holiday gift for the jewelry lover in your life. While all items are presented here for convenience, you must still visit that particular seller's shop to purchase and each transaction is subject to that seller's shop policies.

When you're done browsing here, take a moment to visit our blog! Starting October 20th, our members will be sponsoring giveaways to celebrate the holiday season. New giveaways are posted each Monday, and winners are announced on Friday.

This week we have a gorgeous woven necklace from Nicole Campanella/Beadwright. Click here to learn how to enter this week's giveaway.
