Featured in Capitola Girl's "SATURDAY SPARKLE"


As ALWAYS I am THRILLED and TICKLED when I am written about and featured.
This is no exception!
Capitola Girl is a fellow designer (and self proclaimed bead-stringing fanatic)that has created a wonderful way to share and spread the work of other independent jewelry designers in her blog. (link on the right) Each week she highlights a designer that has a piece with "lots of sparkle" in her "Saturday Sparkle" articles.
This Saturday I was chosen to be the selected artist!
I am TRULY honored as her article was so well written and I was gushing with pride and appreciation while I was reading it.
As anyone knows who has been reading my blog, I have been under A LOT of personal stress and it's times like this that I forget why I design jewelry. By reading what a fellow artisan had to say about My work REALLY allowed me to stop for that moment and FEEL appreciation for what I have been given a gift to be able to do. I THANK Susan, Capitola Girl's designer behind the name, for allowing me to reevaluate what I am doing in my life as a designer and appreciate what my hard work can accomplish. I get SO caught up in just living my life that I forget to appreciate others as well as myself.
Of Course selfless promotion...PLEASE CHECK OUT HER ARTICLE and also the rest of her blog as it is an entertaining READ!
