whether you're a jewelry designer, bead artist, or creator of something wonderful, do you ever wonder where your treasures end up?  i do... i'm guilty of becoming attached to my beads and as i wrap them up and carefully place them in their mailing envelope, i can't help but wonder what will become of them.  
i know, i know, pretty cheesy.
so with much delight, i was happy to receive a convo from Kaushambi of Beaditi with a link to this necklace she created with one of my pendants....
wildflowers from oregon
 i love the simplicity and softness in the design
thanks k, for sharing :)

oh sweet jesus...
it happened, it finally happened!
i am incredibly honored to be Cynthia Tinapple's Polymer Clay Daily featured artist.

Painterly polymer

The “painterly” adjective is an easy one to attach to some works. But lately, “painterly” polymer has been pushed to a whole new level as in these Rustica Erosion beads. Alison Sachs of BeadsByEarthTones paints, textures, scuffs, and swipes her beads into something more than you may have thought possible.      “Down to earth and full of imperfect texture…like me,” she says.
Polymer is attracting more fiber artists, glass artists, ceramicists and, well, painters who bring very different expectations and sensibilities to our craft.

thank you!
