Bubba's Story

The Mom was looking for a bracelet made with unusual stones (watermelon tumbling or something like that). She went looking on the internet and found one which she paid mucho dinero for. She got it in the mail and decided she could make the same thing. Then she started scouring the eBay auctions because where we used to live there aren't any real bead stores (as opposed to?). This became an obsession to her so she spent tons of money on beads and supplies. We watched her work day and night on her crap ......um "creations", and to our amazement she even sold a few to a salon where she used to get her claws done.
Well, when she sold her first pieces everything else went to the dogs . At that time, she was working full time and spending every spare moment with those stoopid stinkin' beads. She then quit her job and still had no time for us kids. The "beagle's nest" was not a happy place as far as the four of us kay9s were concerned. I, Bubba, (the stud beagle) called a meeting on the porch one day and suggested that we do something about the situation.
We were not feeling satisfied just doing dog things all day and needed a new challenge. We came up with an idea for a family-run company and would call it "bare bonz designs" referring to paw-made jewelry. We thought we had a wiener...err.... winner when we presented it to her, but she told us we were barking up the wrong tree. She did agree to consider the company idea. We hounded her until she finally gave in and decided to call it "BubbasJewels".

*note* Bubba "The Stud Beagle" went over the rainbow bridge last year and we miss him.

Our creations are not in any galleries, boutiques, shows, malls or The Smithsonian Institute. Beyonce has never heard of us and Beaulah who owns a Tattoo parlor in town hasn't either.
Nonetheless, we take pride in our creations so all of our jewelry is designed and created with care and attention to detail (The Mom is an Anal Retentoid).
The beads used in our designs are genuine and purchased from reputable dealers and talented artists from around the world. We also occasionally use the beads made by The Mom which are properly annealed. Our findings are made of sterling silver, 14kt gold fill, gold vermeil or pewter. All of our bracelets, necklaces, anklets and sun catchers are strung on Soft-Flex or Soft-Touch wire.
