I am excited to say that I have been accepted as a teacher over on Jewelrylessons.com! I will submit the Dainty Sisters Pendent tutorial soon. It feels good to be accepted by fellow jewelry artists. SMILE!! I will also post it on Etsy.

I'm thrilled to be making jewelry again. I've slowed down since my father got sick back in November and was in the hospital for 2 months, then came home and died. It was and is a very difficult time. I counted on jewelry making, writing, and photography to get me through the hard times. It all shoot down though- nothing worked to help me at all. I barely made my Christmas presents and they did not turn out the way I wanted. Creativity- sucked out the window. I haven't been able to do much lately. Working on this tutorial has helped get some spark back- this and the gem and jewelry show last weekend. It's funny how some beads, wire, pliers, etc. can be a light at the end of a dark tunnel.

Hi Lola!
Thanks for the lovely compliments on my paintings, and congrats on the teaching!

I find painting very therapeutic too, I guess any creative endeavor is... we have no choice but lose ourselves in what we're creating... glad you're finding your voice again.
