Another cool Blog challenge!

One of my new favorite blogs is Objects and Elements, which is maintained by it's founders Susan Lenart Kazmer, and Linda Larsen.

They've been hosting some really cool Reader challenges. I missed out on the last one, which was creating your own clasp. But I did enter this most recent one which is Summer Color. How easy!!

The Summer season is full of color and it shows in some of my designs. I can't always be earthy. Sometimes little punches of color comes out in my designs, and I know I've seen some really awesome colors in a miriad of different jewelry blogs lately.

You should definitely submit a piece of jewelry, all you need to do is email them your jpeg.

The deadline is Aug. 21st. The winner will be showered with love and get some goodies from the Objects and Elements store. Read more details on this contest here.

  6. I would like to announce that one of my blogs : Jewelers Studio in the Woods is finally up and running and packed with resources for metalsmths, jewelers and niche artisans. My most recent article related to processing credit cards payments for artisans is worth looking over too. I think the link to my page is working- I answer any and all questions related to anything jewelry, metallurgy, bead making, hallmarking, marketing, business start-ups in the artisan market and international import export law- even questions about processing botanicals into beads have been posed on my page ( i am a former ethnobotanist among other things). My websites Jewelers Studio In The Woods, Vieux Carre Jewelers and my newest Aqua-Sephia for buying cuttlefish casting kits, cuttlefish bone aat a price that will make Rio Grande cry and instruction in the technique of mould making with cuttlefish bone and even uses beyond jewelry for cuttlefish castings can be found there on the all things sephia site.It will be working by this evening if I'm lucky.If in registering you mention Lorelei's blog I'll even give you a 10% discount on your first purchase ( if you are using paypal to buy Aqua- Sephia products)..hopefully that will help me win the next random drawing for beads '-) (wink!).
    Forgive my shameless self-promotion but I believe I can offer all of the visitors to this site some help, great products, and resources by disemminating this information as an adjunct to the blogs you are already visiting and supporting..
    While self promoting- I just found out I have won the National Jewelers Network Award for Best Independent Jeweler of 2009 .The designation for my Vieux Carre Jewelers New Orleans Business is one of only 27 nationwide jewelry businesses to win the award.
