I'm a lucky girl!
Every now and then, you just get lucky. I must have eaten my lucky charms, because I have so many talented friends in this blogging world. If I haven't mentioned lately how many talented ladies I've met through blogging land, shame on me.
So I would like to showcase a few right now.
Below are a darling pair of earrings made by the talented Maire Dodd. Not only are these beautiful, they are mine! I was lucky enough to win these in her on line contest at Love My Art Jewelry, where she is a contributing artist with some other talented ladies.
Maire describes these earrings as "journey earrings...the powerful symbol of the unending circle, combined with papers preserved in resin that encourage one to live...hand dyed fibers in beautiful blue/green...and iolite-a stone for spiritual seekers which helps to balance the yin/yang energies".
I love the beautiful insight, thoughtfulness and love that goes in to her work. I have worn these many times already, and they feel good. Not only beautiful, but knowing a dear friend made them.
Thank you MJ.
Another talented designer, and dear friend, is the lovely Diane Cook. I was lucky enough to meet Diane in the blogging world, take a three day workshop with her in LA, then got to teach with her in Houston at Adorn Me last March. I find Diane to be a very talented designer, a wonderful teacher, has a wonderful flare for composition, and one heck of a photographer. She is on fire these days, incredibly busy in the jewelry world and great at organizing challenges.
So....here's you chance to play! Diane has set up a challenge to use beautiful findings by her favorite finding supplier, Brass Bouquet. The button is on my sidebar, so just click it for the details. She's got a fun challenge she's organized.
Way to go Diane.
Thanks for getting to know my friends!
Hugs to all.
