Etsy Project Embrace

I want to tell you about a project that I am involved in, Etsy Project Embrace. It is a group of artists passionate about cancer awareness and research. 5% of selected items on my website will be donated to American Cancer Society (ACS).

Each week we have a Challenge and this week it is "Mama Love" and here is my entry along with all the others:

Have a great weekend!

Bead Soup Party

What a great way to meet new artists and swap beads! Join the Bead Soup Party at Lori Anderson's blog: She makes beautiful lampwork beads and when I win the lottery I am going to buy one of her "Better Than Prozac" Necklaces!

You must enter by May 7th, send your beads May 18th and the party begins June 19th.

Everyone will post what they received and then what they made. Hurry May 7th is right around the corner.

Bottle Tag

Have you ever taken a bottle of wine or liquor to a party and at the end of the evening there are six of the same bottle? Well wonder no more! This hand forged Copper Tag will do the trick (unless someone has the same name as you!).

This also makes a great wedding or groomsman gift!

More Giveaways ...... Maybe I should jump on

Here is a great giveaway from the wonderful Lorelei Eurto. She has an wonderful eye for color and the way she puts her pieces together. She also has great connections on her blog for additional places to get great art beads.

I was honored to make a piece for a custom order she did a couple of months back and I also own an adorable bracelet with her signature owl on it.

Go on over and check out her blog, you will not be disappointed.
Enjoy the day everyone!

Whew!!! I Did It .....

After a week of agonizing I finally put together my first Wholesale Package! I had a company approach me at the Ravenscroft Market and ask to sell some of my Charmed Series necklaces. They want to want to help promote local artists and I was floored that they asked ME!
So I have conquered my fear!! Since the Ravenscroft Market things have really been busy locally and off my website. Thanks to all of my customers .... you are the best.
