Couple of pieces of good news this past week I wanted to share with you.
Remember my post a little while ago in October about a challenge that Art Jewelry magazine was running to see what you could create with 10g or less of metal clay - well my piece was selected!!! Yeah!!! I used it as a challenge to myself to see how small I could make an "anyone" - and so made the "Anyone can bring me flowers" earrings. They weigh only 6g!
I think Art Jewelry Magazine were selecting 5 or 10 pieces to form the basis of an article of what you can create with only 10g of metal clay. So my little anyones will be famous soon!!!! It'll be great to see them in a magazine - and a magazine that I like and have a subscription too.
The other good news is that my all-year-long-Christmas-necklace is appearing in a video! Yes, this was my competition piece where you had to guess my name for the piece. Well, The Three Wise Men, aka the Sages, will be appearing in a Christmas/Holiday jewelry video! Don't really know much else about it - but when it comes out, I'll put a link here so you can see it. The woman doing the video is the producer and host of "The Jewelry Connection" - An online radio talk show for and about independent jewelry artisans.
So how does a necklace appear in a video?? Do you think it has a speaking part or just a walk on,...maybe an extra in a crowd scene???? :-D heh, heh.......Or maybe as it's the THREE Wise Men, it has three parts - each leaf gets to talk about something - gold, frankincence and myrrh????!!!!
Anyhow - it is so very encouraging when people/peers find my pieces and then want to show and promote them to others. I'm most grateful.
