Mary Lou Jaramillo New Artist Showcase for the weekend!

Mary Lou Jaramillo Showcases her Beadwork

I don’t know about you but I am so very happy it is Friday. The sun is shining here in Suquamish and it is a great day to showcase a new and upcoming artist!

I would like to introduce Mary Lou Jaramillo. Mary Lou is a bracelet artist and beader. She specializes in children’s bracelets but also does a wonderful job with adult bracelets. Her use of color and design is simply amazing!

Mary Lou's Children Bracelet

We often meet and have lunch and show each other our new creations. Not only are we bead friends, we are foodie friends too.  Just last week we ate at Hare & Hounds in Poulsbo ( an authentic English Pub) where I had the fish and chips specialty.   The week before that we did our cherished  Clearwater Casino lunch. Every time we eat and get our creations out on the table, people passing by stop to oooo and ahhh over them.  This is not only fun, it is a great way to test market the goods.

Elegant & Stunning! Another Mary Lou Creation!

Mary Lou’s love of beading is refreshing. She does not have a website, but she makes many creations for her granddaughter and family. Mary Lou is averaging and impressive two bracelets made per day!

As Sweet as a Root beer float! Mary Lou Creations!
If you would like to see her design work she will be showcased at The Mother’s Day Bazaar at Clear Water casino on Saturday, May 8th, from 8am – 5pm. Visit this fundraiser to assist the 2010 3-Day Team in reaching its goal for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Read More about the event...
