My creative tendancies have been rather haphazard of late so only now can I justify blogging about making and designing new jewelry! My mixed-media building for Cloth Paper Scissors was damaged due to the builders fixing my plumbing using equipment that raised more dust than a storm in the desert! I will probably have to do that from scratch as easier! Least said about that the better!
However I cleared my exhibition jewelry from Arts and Enterprise in Ebbw Vale and I am hoping to have a jewelry party near the end of July! I am working on some new designs and will be adding these to my Flickr slideshow in the next few days.Keep your eyes open for those. I was surprised how many items I had on display in Ebbw Vale. I know I had my inventory in my hand when I went over but it was like discovering hidden treasures when I was opening display units and boxes.I had forgotten how lovely some of my pieces are!
My sister has bought me a lightbox for my jewelry photography and I am impressed at the diffference in the way the box defuses light so harsh shadows are not cast,even in very bright light.
This morning, I recieved a string of chyroprase beads and some tiny sterling findings from Cathy Daly on Etsy. I was very impressed by the stunning quality of the beads and the speed at which they arrived! Very impressed indeed! I had also ordered findings from Patina Queen and as always they are fabulous.
Don't forget to add a comment to my blog to be in with a chance of winning the fab Elaine Ray earrings worth $45. Love and light to you all,Anne.
