Don't get me wrong. I love beads and beading. However, creating jewelry with few or no metal components is really challenging. I am always tossing a chain in a project or using something recycled. I love gaudy jewelry. I love big and flamboyant pieces of wearable art that will reveal what is hidden deep in my soul.
I created two pieces of jewelry for a submission that I cannot discuss nor show pictures of... This is the hard part because I love the feedback from my friends and colleagues. Perhaps it is my narcissitic nature that comes with being a Sagittarius. I don't know. Rest assured, they meet my quality standards and need for flamboyance.
Thought for the day: Do something outside your comfort level. You will rise to the challenge.

Finally, I want to highlight one of my favorite all-around artists and jewelry designers- Barbe Saint John! Barbe visited us here in Lancaster last May and taught the House of Dreams workshop. I can also say that I am the proud owner of FOUR (4) of Barbe's jewelry designs.
Here is the link to this listing:
So, ladies and gentlemen - PLEASE check out these shops because if I am pleased with the quality and pure beauty of their work (I am soooo picky), then I know you will be too.
