The CAC’s Pop Up Arts Shop Welcomes Jayde’s Beadiful Beads!

Douglasville GA – Every month the Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville/Douglas County (CAC) features the artwork of a local craftsman in the Pop Up Arts Shop. The CAC strives to connect the Douglasville community to affordable, locally created products, and is proud to welcome Karen Wiseman of Jayde’s Beadiful Beads as July’s featured artist! Specializing in a wide variety of decorative and jewelry items, Karen is a local favorite, consistently emerging as a best seller at many CAC events and festivals. Her eclectic creations range from the elegant to the whimsical and are extremely affordable.

What began as a therapeutic endeavor, creating simple, beaded earrings evolved as Karen received feedback from the people buying her work.  Earrings lead to hair-clips which lead to tiny sculptures, as her experience from attending events ignited her creativity to bring even more treasures to her customers.  In addition to expanding the diversity of her inventory, the complexity of her individual pieces also increased as she gained confidence and know-how from hundreds of hours spent connecting with the other artists and purchasers.

There are a few major differentiators that set Jayde’s Beadiful Beads apart from other craft vendors.  The first is the price point.  Jayde’s Beadiful Beads provides a good quality, joyous product, for a price that anyone can afford.  While she does have more expensive items available, there are always adorable, reasonably priced tiny sculptures and other smaller jewelry pieces for sale.  The second differentiator is the variety of products offered by Jayde’s Beadiful Beads. Rather than having a single type of item, a visit to Jayde’s Beadiful Beads booth feels like going to a colorful boutique with many goods to choose from.  However, despite the wide variety of objects, each one has a positive vibe that is unmistakably “Jayde’s.”

The Pop Up Arts Shop is the place for amazing one-of-a-kind gifts created by local artists. Each month the CAC features a different artist that works with varying mediums. All items are under $75 so be sure to stop by the CAC for some amazing arts and crafts before they’re gone!
