Bursting Forth :: Art Jewelry Elements Challenge

When there’s new growth bursting out all over,
everything fresh, green, and flourishing,
the plants are little rockets of success
going off every time you look at them.

Glass murrini headpins from Jennifer Cameron of Glass Addictions



Thank you to Miss Jennifer Cameron of Glass Addictions for the honor of working with her amazing murrini glass headpins for the Art Jewelry Elements Component of the Month challenge. The colors are so beautiful in these tiny little worlds filled with swirls of glass, all I did was pull the same colors onto the paint effects on the metal leaves and components I layered in this bracelet called "Bursting Forth." A garden party for your wrist! Aren't you excited for spring to finally come?

Bursting Forth
Please go and visit the Art Jewelry Elements community and see what others created with Miss Jennifer's gorgeous glass headpins. Thank you for the opportunity, Miss Jennifer!

Kaleidoscope Heart


"The idea behind 'Kaleidoscope Heart' is that we're all sort of in pieces and broken bits on the inside, but somehow, when you look through them, you still see something beautiful and colorful and magical..."
- Sara Bareilles

 Words by Sara Bareilles.

Original faux fused glass necklace designed by me for the lovely Miss Tori.

Inspired by each dancer who represents a singular color in a fascinating kaleidoscope
filled with light and movement and beauty that literally take my breath away.

To the director, Miss Tori Rogoski, and all the dancers at Dance Education Center, I look forward to witnessing your joy tonight at the premiere of  
The View 
and the Spring Spotlight recital this weekend.

"We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once."
