Guess who!Yesterday I got a bee in my bonnet about wanting some new jewelry to wear to the art show tonight. So I made a bee line to the bead store downtown, a place I walk by every lunch hour. This time I went in. I found this ready made by artist Jessica Lindemar, necklace and I liked it. It's made with Ceramic Kazuri beads, carved wood, taqua nut, bone and horn with natural brass. The beads are the same ones I used on Soulbrushes commissioned art quilt wall hanging in 2008. These beads are hand made by Kenya women to support themselves. I find them quite beautiful. I wanted some earrings to go with the necklace, so Dave, the man who owns the shop said he could make some up for me. He got busy looking for matching/blending beads and created these on the spot. I wanted long and dangly ones not too heavy and he did a wonderful job. He did not charge me for making them. Just for the materials used. How about that generosity! I will feel very artsy at my art show tonight! He threw in the pretty India fabric bag for me to keep them in.
Last but not least here are two wonderful ATCs that arrived early in the week from Sukipoet!
I love her Home theme, as she has her heart set on finding the right home that will make her happy. Lets send lots of positive energy her way for this to happen!
Come back tomorrow to see the ART SHOW!
