Fire Mt.Page

I have a page on Fire Mt.Gems website! In 2009 I entered the Fire Mt.Gems annual beading contest.When I heard that I had made the second round of judging I was so excited.I also recieved a form to fill out for their Jewelry Artist profile.If you go to and go to the bottom of the home page,on the left hand side under Jewelry Makers Library,click on Jewelry Artists,then Noteable Artists,I'm on the first page! You can read more of my jewelry story there. I really had fun entering this contest and I was thrilled to have tied for 2nd place in the glass category for my Irish Cream necklace.

Tuesday's Tip

Movement is one design element that I love to incorporate in my jewelry.It can be described as movement of the eye that flows smoothly from one area of composition to another such as gradations of color or form.It can also be literal, such as adding dangles to your bracelet or earrings.
The winner of the April Lampwork bead giveaway is Lisa Suver!!Thank you Lisa for all your great tips and your participation in my little contest.
