New Links

It has been a busy week and the month of November is going to remain busy. My Aunt, who  generously presents my jewelry at her shows, will be having two events in November. I will be assisting.

I took my latest creations to work to show what I had been doing and sold two necklaces and gained one repair job. I have to finish the second necklace and repair job today.  I will try to take pictures.

I have been busy adding links to my RSS feed, which explains in part, why I have over 300 un-read blog posts in my reader. The new links are available on the All My Blog Links page under the subtitle New Links. There are 28 new links, all worth a visit.

I added 3 Polish blogs, and probably would have added more had I had the time to follow links on those blogs. Check out: Bizuteria by Dominikana for beautiful wirework, Margita- hand embroidered jewelry for stunning and bright soutoche, and Haft koralikowy by Jagienkaa for exquisite bead embroidery.

If you are looking for patterns, don't miss: Gyöngyékszer minták.

I find quite a few links through Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Party which is where I found: Objects and Elements a truly awesome site with step by step tutorials.  The last two tutorials were for wearable journals.  The step by step instructions made it look easy to create these metal covered, hinged, journals.  What more could you ask for?

I am at heart a bead weaver.  If you want complex multipart tutorials for big finished pieces, do not miss: Tutoriels perles, Créations Laure.

The link for Bead Perles is a shop, but they have great interviews with European beaders.  What a great resource.

Finally, I posted a link to my friend Karen Landis.  I expect some day she will be well known.


  1. Objects and Elements carries real bronze wire, which I LOVE. And if you like tutorials, try, too -- sign up for their newsletter and they send you new ones periodically. Cool stuff!

    I'm so glad you liked the BSBP!

  2. I always enjoy the BSBP, it is a chance to explore and be inspired. Thanks for the tip about Ornamentea.

  3. What a wonderfully informative blog post !!! Loved the links to view all the luscious creations by Dominikana, Margita and Jagienkaa ... just amazing ! Plus the links to the tutorials is like getting a prize, a lot of inspirations found here today. Thank You. :)

  4. Oh gosh forgot to say what I wanted to say in the first place. Congratulations on getting the office sales and the repair job and I just know that your two shows in November are going to be huge successes. :)

  5. I had to laugh Almost Precious- I often end up posting 2 comments because I forgot something.

    Thanks for your words of support.

    There were 28 new links in all, all worthy of an individual mention; don't miss them on my second page. I have family from Poland so I was really happy to find those links and they were just astounding artists. Blogs with tutorials always get saved to my RSS feed.


Thank you for sharing. I had to turn off anonymous comments because spam was being posted.
