Focus on Life- Week 42 All in a day and Week 43 In the Shadows

Focus on Life has been a weekly photo prompt challenge by  Sally Russick of the Studio Sublime. I have had trouble keeping up this fall, but I am trying to catch up this weekend.

I finally re-stocked the ArtSpace Gallery gift shop in the  town of Herndon, Virginia. The ladies were great at giving me feedback and I sold a couple of items  at drop off...happy dance!!!

A couple of new enamel pendants, I am really happy with the way they came out.


Enamel Pendants

I feel like I have been in the shadows as far as creating jewelry.

I was thrilled to read Kris Lanae Binfelds  blog showing her  bead soup winning design in the fall issue of Jewelry Affaire magazine, which includes all the bead Soup Winners.

My name is even listed as her bead soup partner, big happy dance.

I was Kris's bead soup partner  and sent her some of my first lamp work beads and swirl head pins as well as a focal by Barbara Bechtel of Second Surf that Kris incorporated in her gorgeous design.

I also sent her a grey swirl bead by HMB Studios, that I wired wrapped that Kris used in the design.

To read about this bead soup check out my post here.

Thanks to Lori Anderson for connecting us and you can read all about the Bead Soup Party at Lori's blog.

Thanks to all the bead and jewelry makers that inspire me each and every day, my life is so much richer for this creative community!

I have a batch of swirl headpins to pick up next week at the studio to be made in to necklaces and will be making more, please leave me a comment with your email  if you are interested in purchasing them and I will send you  a note when I have some listed in my shop. 

Thanks for stopping  by and have a great week!!!
