I have been working with Birgitta on a couple of projects trying to design special elongated hearts and larger wings for pendants. I so enjoy the process of working long distance, and the communications between artists from other countries. Everyone is so kind to work in English and has so much patience with me as we try to finalize the details for their projects. Birgitta is a dream to work with! And I love her art and how she uses her talent to bring comfort to those who wear her designs.
From Birgitta's Etsy profile...she says of herself...
Working with beads and jewelry is easy to become an addiction
I love to let my creativity and healing energy flow into some designs that hopefully will be used by someone who loves wearing it as much as I love creating it.
I LOVE to work with all different materials that mother nature is offering us and some more....so my home is filled with beauties hanging on the walls (strings of pearls and gems and lampwork and crystal and .....stuffed in my drawers -just waiting for me to hold them and use them
and the result will show up here- well at least some of it..
You can find her Etsy shop here...http://www.etsy.com/shop/lejonklou
Top two photos are from Birgitta's Etsy shop. The third and fourth photos audition two of my new designs and the bottom photo features Birgitta's incorporation of one of my raku wings in a bracelet. Isn't it lovely!!!

Carol Epp's blog is a great place to keep up with what is going on in the pottery world. And the photo above shows what a talented artist she is as well! http://musingaboutmud.blogspot.com/2009/12/artist-of-day-dorcas-midkiff.html
From jobs, to museum exhibitions, to applications to enter contests or be published all things pottery can be found here! I am so in love with this blog. Because of her blog I took courage to enter my Medusa's Sister for placement in Lark Books' 500 Raku. Time will tell if my work is published. But no matter, it was a learning experience and next attempt will find me better armed to fight the publishing fight!
And now I am honored to be one of Carol's Artists of the Day for the Month of December.
Stop by and leave a comment if you like and read my humble attempt at an interview!
Carol is of course a fellow Etsian...visit her shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/caroleepp
