Like this teaser pic? After a few months of hinting around and biting my tongue, I'm finally able to tell share my happy & exciting news. I'm was chosen to be on the first ever Objects and Elements Design Team!!!! This is one of my projects you'll see soon over on the Objects and Elements blog.
I'm sure most of you are familiar with Susan Lenart Kazmer, whether thru seeing her jewelry work, read her blog or taken a class with her. She is an amazingly talented artist and instructor. I love her to death, and was over the moon when I was asked to be on the team. I think I screamed OH MY GOD at the top of my lungs and fell off my chair when I saw the email, to be honest. Keeping quiet about this was one of the hardest things I've had to do because I'm so excited about it I wanted to tell EVERYONE! I am thrilled, honored and humbled to be a part of this group of INCREDIBLY talented women.
Our Design Team members are Jen Cushman, Deryn Mentock, Kristen Robinson, Jane Salley and me! Jen is also the new media manager & design team co ordinator for Objects and Elements. She's put a lot of hard work into creating the new blog, doing P.R. and corraling us creative ladies - a big round of applause to her for all the hard work she has done.
In the coming weeks, you'll be able to see our creations on the new Objects and Elements Blog. We'll be creating some lovely projects using amazing supplies from the Objects & Elements store, along with various found objects, beads, wire, etc... The blog has just gone live and will soon have lots of content like featuring jewelry by Susan Lenart Kazmer and her business partner, Jewelry Designer Linda Larsen, more about the design team, updates on new store items, guest artist features, reader challenges and more. You don't want to miss out on any of the fun, so be sure to add the RSS feed to your blog links or add to bloglines or Google Reader
You all know I'm a big fan of ICE resin and it's the resin I use for my jewelry work. You can buy that online at the Objects & Elements store along with a variety of unique beads, fibers, bezels, resin molds and tools for your art jewelry making needs.
