Coincidence or not

 Lately good vibes have been coming my way. No black cats crossing my path…Is it because I’m open to it? That I’m paying attention? I don’t know for sure, but who am I to question things?
Here’s the chain of events:

In March of 2012 I met Susan Lenart Kazmer at Artfest and became part of her mixed media design team in September. Late October I met Regina from RMA Design Studio. In a discussion, I discovered she manufactures in pewter (which I happened to be researching).


  Fast forward to July of this year: I am fortunate enough to meet the wonderful people at Makers Square in Ft Lauderdale. They are as passionate about creating as I am and in less than 2 weeks I will be teaching the very first class there on Ice Resin®!
A few months ago Regina and I got together and pow wowed! We produced some pieces and she sent me on my way.


Last week a friend asks if I want to get together and do a photo shoot with my jewelry. Well, YES!                         I’m (im)patiently awaiting the photos to add to my look book for my pitch for a major retailer. Can’t wait to see the photos…
I also had the good fortune of being given an enameling kiln last week. How sweet!

 Rewind to yesterday: I get an email presenting the opportunity to make jewelry that will end up in celebrities’ hands at the Emmy’s. Are you kidding me??? Of course I jumped on the opportunity.
I’d have to say the planets are aligning…
Peace, Jomama

June is approaching

 June is approaching and the Bead & Button Show in Milwaukee is on my mind. I love learning and have signed up with some of the best forging and emaneling teachers.
Along with my necessary tools, I'm also bringing along an aluminum hairspray can and tin cans to experiment with. I'll be learning techniques to manipulate metal with hammers as well as emameling glass onto metal. Oh, and a class working with faux bone. How cool is that?
Being a child at heart, I'm excited for this adventure and the new friendships that will form. Besides that, what new jewelry designs will I come up with next? Stay tuned...
