As Seen On Beads Baubles And Jewels: "By the Sea", Episode 2701

"As seen on Beads Baubles and Jewels"

(This is a segment from the first episode of Beads Baubles and Jewels.)

"By the Sea" features Sara Oehler of SaraOehler.com for Soft Flex Company. Sara shows seed beading using Soft Touch Beading wire, SuperDuo Seed Beads and findings from Green Girl Studios.

You can watch the entire episode of "By the Sea" on your local public television station starting January 24, 2019. Check your local listings for air times.

Sara's appearance on the first episode of the newest season of Beads Baubles and Jewels was so much fun. This is just a segment. A little sneak peek of the fun. You can catch the full episodes on public television stations and YouTube. Check your local listings. You won't want to miss these shows.

Sara went with an ocean theme. The theme was inspired by her recent move to the Bay Area in Northern California. She can see the beach from her house. Certainly a nice change from the heat of the Arizona desert where she used to live.

What could be more inspiring than the sights and sounds of the ocean that evoke a sense of calm?
