Take a look.
The finger I use to hold up the work is my pinkie finger- the smallest one on my hand.
Feel free to comment!

custom blended colors of polymer clay.
The piece does not look as beautiful in the photos as it does in person.
I wish you could see it in these photos. the way I see it with my eyes.
The colors are warmer and softer in person and the Swarovski stones *bling*
and the gold mica shines brightly!
The top photo is the front cover and the 2nd photo is the back cover.
I wanted to thank you all for visiting during the beaded blog hop!
(Bead Soup Blog Party)
It was such a great project to be a part of.
Enjoy the rest of the week!

I am so glad that you are here.
I've constructed quite a few pieces out of the ingredients that my partner for this event has sent me!
Since we are allowed to make more than one item, I made a bunch!
The inspiration was endless!
I really like the challenge of having to create beaded creations from a random set of beads, a clasp and a focal bead- within a deadline!
This is the biggest Bead Soup Blog Party event-ever!
Hosted by my good friend, the warm, the kind, the very cool and talented
This event is fun!
A challenge too!
I was paired up with a very creative designer and "Fashion Beading" book author, Kim Ballor!
Kim made some beads out of glass and also sent me some complimentary beads to play with as well.
Here are some of the items I made, using the beads that she sent me!
This piece was "modeled" by a young lady and her friend, who was holding it over her ' tummy for the photo. I made a whole new gang of friends while making jewelry outdoors yesterday. When I say gang I mean- 10+ kids! It was nice having an enthusiastic audience.
I shared some of my machine cut faceted crystal teardrops and some other beads with the girls.

~*Mixed Media Pendant*~
~*Mixed Media Bracelet*~
This bracelet is SO much lovelier in person! The colors from the OTT lamp and the regular light in the house do not do this piece justice!
Thank You Kim for inspiring me!
You are a great partner!
Thank you for taking the time to visit me here!
Please leave a comment to let me know that you stopped by!

I want to blog but I am so busy that I'll just be sharing some really random thoughts and facts about my week so far...
The following is a compilation of blogging prompts that have been accumulating.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~* RANDOM *~*~*~*~*~*~*~
There is a question that I, and most artists, are faced with each time we create something wonderful, "Should I keep it or let it go?
That goes for our arsenal of supplies as well!
Art is subjective.
We love it, some question it, some even analyze it.
Some people who question art and the motives of artists often seek answers that sometimes don't even amount to much.
"Why did that artist put that there, what was the meaning of the placement?"
I'll be honest with you, some artists don't think about WHY they are putting something in a specific place, other than the fact that it suits them to do so because they find it visually pleasing. >.<
Art has a value.
Each piece, is a recording of time, history, emotion, inspiration, thoughts and ideas.
Designing hardware for a purse line.
Some art, may not necessarily be the type of work that strikes a chord within my heart but I still find it amazing.
