The day is finally here!
Bead Fest wrapped up two whole weeks ago and I haven't even shared a single photo. I know. Totally not cool.
I can't remember the last time I made jewelry. It's been a loooong time, though. Partly because I was unable to (I still can't close a jump ring), and partly due to lack of time while prepping for Bead Fest.
Two weeks ago today I had surgery to fix my broken elbow (of course it was my right arm. Yes, I'm right handed. Very right handed). If you don't follow my Facebook page, you may be like "What? Back up!"
The next day:
About a month ago, Diana P. realized she was on a mega waxed linen kick and decided to host a blog hop. The requirement being participants make jewelry using waxed linen. I've never used waxed linen before. So I decided sure, why not. So I ordered some waxed linen. I couldn't decide what color to get. So I got all of them.
It's time for another installment of the monthly design challenge we refer to as the AJE Component of the Month. Each month a member of my team at Art Jewelry Elements provides a handmade art jewelry component to several team mates plus a few guest designers with the simple rule that they must use the component in a design. Then we all reveal at the end of the month.
I had requests on my Facebook page to share how the Bellflower Press works. So my 12 year old daughter filmed me, helped me cut the 6 minute video down to 1.5 minutes, showed me how to do voiceover, and decided the video needed a music background.
She did a great job! I definitely could not have done this without her.
