Great Use of Color!

One of my favorite things to do is to see what the talented jewelry designers do with my beads and the many other wonderful lampworkers work that I see on Etsy, Artfire, etc. I usually have some kind of vision about how I would use the beads, that's if I ever got the time! And, then when I see the finished product I am blown away by the variety of styles that showcase the beads. Denise and Katie of livilubaby took some of my chunky disks from a variety of sets and put together this wonderful bracelet. I love the bright colors and the silver components that are included in this bracelet. It really does remind me of a fiesta!

We're Having a YART Sale!

What in heaven's name is a Yart Sale! Well it is an artistic slant to a traditional Yard Sale: Yard + Art = YART. Etsy is having a Yart Sale starting on June 10 and running through the 14th. Great idea! It is a great idea to bring the whole community of Etsy together in a common goal.

So all you wonderful people come visit my store Linden Avenue Designs on the 10th thru the 14th and see what all the excitement is about! It should be fun!

More Buyers Creations

Mary Jane of mairedodd is one of my wonderful collaborative buyers. She has given me some interesting projects to work on and I never know quite how it is going to end. She takes what I and many other lampwork artists make and turns them into her own wonderful designs. I love how each designer takes these components and makes them her own!
