I have been crossing paths with so many awesome artists that create some of the most fantastic wearable art that it is truly mind-boggling. Their creations often leave me at a loss for words.
One of those artists is Kylie Parry. She works with ceramics and creates the most charming ceramic pieces that always resonate with me because of her use of earthy colors and her obvious affection for birds. I have only fashioned one necklace with one of her signature owl beads, but I will certainly be using her lovely pieces again in the future.
I discovered a new artist today, Esfera Jewelry, who has posted a wonderful interview with Kylie on her delightful blog, and she is also hosting a giveaway of some of Kylies' items. You can post your comments here for a chance to win. Give-aways are always fun and the prizes featured in this one are just like Kylie: unique and sweet as can be.
I also have some very exciting news: I will be the proud owner of a Vintaj Sizzix BIGkick Machine soon, and will be making my own pendants and metal jewerly pieces. I'm so excited to learn about the world of embossing and using patinas to color metal pieces; this will be opening up a whole new world for me. I have been cleaning out my office which will soon be a craft room, to make enough space to work on many new projects while adding many new materials to my wearable art.
Until next time,
