If you're just tuning in or you need a recap, please go to the original blog post and read carefully for all the details about the book and how to submit! We've seen some great designs so far submitted to the Flickr group! Check it out, if you haven't taken a peak. Some wonderful inspiration there! Lorelei and I are thrilled with the response to our call out, so THANK YOU to everyone who has responded and submitted jewelry! You are going to make this a really tough decision on us!

Also, if you haven't submitted up to 5 designs, we encourage you to do so, really show us what you can do with those cording materials!!! As for the rest of you, get busy beading over the holiday and upload your designs to the Flickr group! ;)
Happy Thanksgiving!

Clay Bead Artist: Duane Collins

I don't have any new jewelry I can actually show you these days. I'm working on jewelry projects for the upcoming book while Nora takes her nap. I can't wait to share my jewelry ideas with you, but it will be a while before I can do that! I want to show you something though, so I thought I would share the AMAZING clay beads I've received from some very talented clay artisans!

The beads below are from clay artisan, Duane Collins of Elements Pottery. Enjoy!

Please visit Duane's Website and Shop for more! Thank you!

Life with Baby

My two loves while we were at the Grandparents house last weekend.

Well, we haven't been doing much around here except taking care of our bundle of joy! Nora is now 3 weeks old and doing great! I hope to get back to creating some jewelry soon!
