Enchanted

I am SO excited about some of my new jewelry designs and hope you are too. Here is a necklace and matching earrings that I have messed with off and on the last month or two. Now it is on its way to the Indiana State Museum in Indianapolis as part of a 6 week display that coincides with the Indiana Art Fair. If you happen to be attending the Fair, I have been informed that I am booth 3-67, so please stop by and say hi.
The set is called Enchanted because...well...because I hate naming my jewelry and beads. So when I asked the kids if they could come up with a title for the set, DD (age 7) says "how about 'Enchanted'" It took my about 2 seconds to decide it was perfect. After all, I am completely enchanted with how the Zimmerman powders used on a pale yellow base transform into exciting variations of the original colors. It is truly magical to watch the transformation and I could make these all day everyday and never get bored. I have Andrea Guarino to thank for teaching the technique when I took her class last February. And for a little extra sparkle, I included AB clear Swarovski cubes. AB stands for Aurora Borealis and is the irridescent coating on the crystals. AB ROCKS!

Thanks ladies! M.~ I've been so busy lately that I haven't had a chance to check out some of my favorite blogs in a while. I will go take a look now. I usually read them (including yours) every day.

Jennifer - *LOVE* the piece! I had fun making those beads in Andrea's class too, but haven't played with them at home yet. Wish I could come to your show!

Jennifer Cameron

Thanks Patty! I LOVE to make these beads. I've tried to change them so they don't look so...Andrea. But everything I've tried just doesn't look as good. I could seriously make these all day every day for weeks because I love them so much.
