A Kaleidoscope of Colors

by Tammy Baalman. (Willis, Texas) When making a one of a kind piece of jewelry, I usually let the stone dictate the direction of the design. I love procuring uniquely shaped stones from talented lapidary artists. For this particular piece, I kept the front simple to allow the stone to be the focal point. For […]

“Green” Horse Pendant

by Valarie Lewis. (United States) This pendant of a horse has both a literal and a figurative meaning.

On New Year’s Eve, I was traveling alone and so, as I sat at a Starbucks in Abilene, Texas, decided to help fill the night by watching tutorials. I came upon […]

Two Glass Tile Necklaces

by Natasha Papousek. (Lemon Grove, CA) These two pieces were made with the same technique. The poinsettia is from a photo that I took near my office. The tree is from a scan of a painting I made. I printed them on super-nice matte presentation paper, then sprayed with acrylic to set the ink. I […]
