Just prior to my last show I need a creative boost. I decided I would sit down and create a Showpiece. One of those pieces that you do because you would love to create, one of those pieces that may not sell , but you just feel the need to create. This is my piece. The blue stones are dyed Variscite and Swarovski crystals. The piece is created completely from raw copper wire 24-14 gauge. And guess what my first show with this piece I won Best of Show!

One night last week while feeling a bit of a lack of creativity, I went out looking for a spark. Well I found it in a tutorial found on Jewelry Lessons.com. I stop in at this site once in awhile just to check out what people are up to. On this night last week I happened upon a tutorial that showed a technique that I thought looked interesting.

Through participation in "The Artisan Group" I have the opportunity to provide a gift for Ginnifer Goodwin who plays Snow White in the new TV series "Once Upon a Time". I just received the email today so now I have spent all day Googling Ginnifer to find out her sense of style. First...this is Ginnifer: What I have identified so far...she loves vintage, very rarely wear necklaces, but does like a dangle earring. She has a Vintage slash contemporary sense of style. I also have found out that she has two cats Merlin and Pearl...so one idea is my corset ring...with the names of both cats. I will keep pondering Stay posted for more to this adv... » Read More
