There are a lot of great people out there in the world who really like to help out artists. I received an e-mail from Connie Mettler, host of an art blog I subscribe to called Art Fair Insiders. Art Fair Insiders is a social networking site for – you guessed it – artists. Info on best craft shows and call for entries nationwide can be found there.

The e-mail, from Cyndi Lavin,  was to inform artists who use organic materials in their work of an opportunity to be featured on the Bliss Tree site, under the Jewelry and Beading blog. Artists were to send in images and a brief description of their work.

I’m happy to say that I got in!

What is even more satisfying is knowing that there are people out there in the world, like Connie Mettler and Cyndi Lavin, who help get the word out in so many ways and help artists to not starve. My hat, and I do wear many, is off to women like these, who put themselves out there every day to help artists. Thank you, Connie and Cyndi!

Newest Work from nDesigns Metal Jewelry Studio

Deep Blue SwedenA new and different work has  emerged from the studio.
The piece on the left is a sterling silver cuff with twisted, hammered wire between two imprinted bands of sterling. What sets this piece apart is an interesting piece of 500-year old Swedish blue slag. This rare piece of glass, along with four other smaller pieces, was obtained several months ago at a local gem and mineral show. I could not resist falling into the deep blue pool of blue, with its swirls and flecks. Each piece of glass is a different size and shape. Noteworthy is that each time I create a piece, it does not last long in the studio! It seems to have a calming, almost mezmerizing  effect that draws one into it’s depths. Like it? Let me know.
