Cindy has just had four pieces of work published in the latest Easy Wire 2010 and the piece she shows on her blog post of June 30 for the Art Bead Scene Design Team Challenge is creatively lovely and so well-photographed that you would think it was professionally done.
Jeanette is also a talented jewelry designer who has published several Glass Art calendars, teaches wireworking and is the owner of Fundametals, an online shop that carries anything you could possibly want for wireworking and jewelrymaking, including some very interesting beads and enamel. She's always looking for the newest and best and her prices and customer service are fantastic.
Together this Dynamic Duo have come up with an amazing event here on the East Coast in Northern Virginia, debuting this September 24-26, called ArtBliss with some very well-known artists teaching day and evening classes in jewelry and mixed media. See the sidebar and click on the announcement for all the information you need. I'm going down to DC from Vermont on Amtrak for the event and I can't wait to meet in person some of the people who have supported me with their ideas, collaborations and mentoring since I began blogging and putting my work out in the world.
The tagline of the event is “All dreams come true if you have the courage to pursue them” something that I have definitely found applies to my life and creative work. Consider taking a class or two-- I'd love to meet more of you in person, my dear online friends!
