Oh My, I Do Believe I'm Hopping Mad!

Well, Erin's wonderful Challenge of Color hop is over and it was such a great experience!  Having never put up my jewellery for scrutiny by the general public before, I was quite nervous as to what the outcome would be.  What a silly sausage!  I've been following the artisan jewellery scene for a while now so I should know how lovely you all are :)

Many, many thanks for all the  wonderful comments you left me, it was really touching to have such amazing feed back from you all.  I almost shed a tear!  I feel I might have to do some kind of penance for the amount of pride I felt seeing something  I have made displayed alongside all the fantastic pieces my hopping companions produced.  I really am looking forward too participating in the community even more as I start getting my jewellery making feet under me again, and I'm sure there will be many wonderful new friends to be made along the way.

In fact I will be jumping right back in again, because I have been lucky enough to win one of five fabulous labyrinth inspired pendants over at Art Jewelry Elements!  Check them out!

My stomach did a massive flip when I read that I would soon  have one of these little bits of art by Jenny Davies-Reazor winging my way.  I have often admired her work and am truly honoured by this chance to add a little slice of her art to my own designs. I won't know exactly which one I will receive but I'm buzzing with ideas already!  Please take a moment to read Jenny's thoughts behind her choice of imagery if you haven't already - it's a lovely message that ring true for many of us as we look forward to the new year ahead.

Blog hop date is the 31st of December, I look forward to seeing you all then!

Much love!

P.S.  Does anyone else find it strange that Blogger's own spell check doesn't recognise the word 'Blog'?


  1. Own it, Miss Jess. That is the first step to being an artist.
    Looking forward to seeing what you do with this pretty pendant!
    Enjoy the day. Erin

    1. Hey Miss Erin :) Thanks, I'm really looking forward to seeing what I can do with it too, such a wonderful opportunity!
