ALNB Collections Weekly Challenge for the Week of February 13th, 2011

One of the main reasons I started to design jewelry was to find a way to have my drawings be incorporated into everyday life, and not to be viewed just as art on walls. Incorporating my drawings into jewelry has been very rewarding because it truly is a marriage of art and fashion. It is "Wearable Art" . As I develop this line, I've enjoy the feedback from customers and other artist who really inspire me to continue to add and raise the bar when it comes to my abilities and subject matter. I love working on new subject matters, custom designs, and custom drawings as well. I thank everyone for these opportunities.

Well this weeks entry is a fun twists on envy and the color "green". Green is one of my favorite colors and this green eyed beauty can cause a little envy in us all. I love the green kyanite sticks and how they pull her eye color out just so. This piece was fun to work on and I hope you all enjoy it as well.

This week holds a lot of challenges for me. I have to complete a series of items before the end of this week to stay on my schedule for an upcoming show the first weekend of March. The "Artist Boutique" in Kirkwood, MO has a long and wonderful reputation and I want to be ready! Wish me luck and remember to stay creative.

Take Care!

ALNB Collections Weekly Challenge for the Week of February 6th, 2011

New Week ! New Challenge

It is Great to be Back!!!!

I had to take a beak for a while but it feels GREAT to be back blogging and showing my new creations for all to see and hopeful enjoy. I have to admit I have made a fair amount of new pieces that have already found new homes. This past holiday season was a true blessing. I sold a variety of new designs that I didn't get to show online.
So for the month of February I can show some of those special items that I created these past 4 months that have found homes.

This piece is call "Straight though the Middle." I Love This Piece. I loved it so much, I kept it. I don't do this often - In fact I own only 2 of my pieces. I enjoyed designing and making this piece a lot. I also enjoyed the color combination of black/gray and copper. This piece also features Hematite, a wonder metal gray - gunmetal gemstones with gives this piece a wonderful look of "mixed metals". It's Cool.

Well this year has many goals to reach, new lines to create and many plans to bring to the surface. I hope you will follow me though it all . Have a wonderful week and stay creative!

Take Care!
