Jewelry Party

My Earrings
Libby Dow's Earrings

Libby and I did more experimenting-this is her design

Bev's design
On Friday night, I hosted a little jewelry making party at my house.  The amazing Shannon Crandall came and opened our eyes to the beauty of creating with beads and metal.  I actually met Shannon through Flora Bowley's course,  braveintuitiveyou.  I've never invited a virtual stranger into my home before, but I am so glad I did!  It was so affirming to have another fellow artist to talk with and share ideas. I could have talked to her all night!  I am so inspired by her work and am excited to take more of her classes. Particularly painting as she uses collage elements in her work and I am completely in love with it.

Libby Dow and I are now addicted to making jewelry.  Right now I have a puppet to make for Ignite, a cake to bake for my daughter's cake decorating class, the ever present laundry to do, and all I want to do is SMASH METAL. 

Libby and I are even thinking of putting together a little collection of jewelry for a local craft show. We may even post some for sale online.  Thank you Shannon, for lighting the way to our new little venture.
