Back to my Jewelry Passion

For me this year has been all about trying to combine 
my love of fiber, polymer clay and jewelry into art to wear. 
I am so excited 
because I entered 3 pieces into the Cloth Paper Scissors Artisan 2012 competition 
in the mixed media jewelry category 
and then forgot all about it. 
Well, Wednesday morning when I checked my email 
I had a message from the editor Jenn, 
that I have been chosen as one of the 25 finalists!!! 
This means I have to ship my pieces off to them 
and they will have them until Nov of 2012.  
Fortunately one of them did not sell on Ebay last week.  
So here are the pieces I entered:

My Peacock Feather inspired necklace

My "Ophelia" Cuff

My Woodland Fairy Bib Necklace
Please give them a kiss goodbye and wish me luck. 
There are only 5 challengers in each of the five categories 
so I figure I have a 20% chance of winning!  
Pretty good odds. 
And my humblest thanks to Cloth Paper Scissors 
for hosting this contest 
and choosing my art jewelry.
And to Heather Powers at Humble Beads 
for providing the inspirational challenges that led to me making these pieces. 
This made my week! 
I have been battling a bad bout of diverticulitus.
There is a limited time in which broth and coconut water taste delicious
and I think it is half past that time. 
We are having a thunderstorm so I am going to go watch the show!! 
Have a great weekend everyone! 


  1. I'm so sorry you're feeling bad, Heather, get better fast! Your jewelry, wow! It's great - good colors and wonderful everything about it. I am very impressed with your work here and suspect that the judges are going to be, too. GOOD LUCK!! Jackie

  2. Wow! All three of these are gorgeous, but my favorite - and probably because I love nature and gardening is the fairy bib, just wonderful!
    Hope your feeling better soon....

  3. Congrats on being selected for the challenge! Awesome job! You and mom both must be into something you aren't suppose to be :) She is in bed right now with diverticulits pain. She isn't looking too good either. I hope you both start to feeling better soon!!! Take care girl. Beth

  4. I loved your piece and all the info leading up to it. Such a "native feel" to it and I would be proud to wear it. Great Job!!!


I have made so many new and wonderful friends with this blog.
I really enjoy and benefit from your feedback about my work.
Please take a minute and comment. Thank you!
