Getting paid to do what you love to do

Stringing together a career as an artist can be very difficult. However, for two local jewelry makers, they make ends meet not only for themselves but also for their community.

Devin McNutt and Leela Ehrhart work at Bumblebeads in Chestnut Hill. Established in November 2004, this one of a kind shop offers a wide selection of beads, metals, and stones for it’s in-shop handcrafted jewelry.

Devin and Leela are both jewelry artists. This helps them provide guidance to Bumblebeads customers, but it also provides a place for them to showcase their work.
