Well, dang! So much good there. I have been circling that book for ages, so it was good to see it again. And Margie Deeb is always so insightful into the colors that rule our lives. I love to hear more of the psychology behind color. She fascinates me. But truthfully, the article from Charlene Gary intrigued me the most. When I saw her name and recognized it from my sampler club I knew I would love to read what she had to say. But to know that somehow I sent her the exact charm (chosen at random) that helped her to FOCUS really makes my day! I love the idea of a chalkboard where you write your goals down. I will have to borrow that idea for my studio! (Beats sticky notes everywhere!) Thanks for sharing all this great information with us, Sara!
Enjoy the day!

I guess my favorite would be the "Spotlight on Wire" I love wire and love to find new books with ideas/tips on wire and wire work.

Those beads look like they're to die for.

Wow, these are fabulous beads!

I really liked SPOTLIGHT ON ... COLOR BY MARGIE DEEB . I can put colors together, but only two ways - colors in the same family, or the colors that contrast. I really need to learn more about putting colors together and this book sounds perfect for it!
Thanks for the giveaway! Good thing I didn't have to write this on paper, or my drooling over the prizes would make the ink run, LOL!

I like Diane Zigabarra's feature because I am also a jewelry designer discovering that the simplest designs work best.

My favorite is "Taking a break" because I can identify with her thoughts right now.
I love the dichroic pendant and beads & would love to use one as a focal point in a necklace.

I enjoyed all the "Spotlight" but most enjoyed "Spotlight on Wire...the book". I love books and this one looks like one I might need to have!

I like the spolight on color. I always have issues with colors. I think I am actually too picky about match and texture!

The aqua criscross dichroic is my fave. No, wait, it's the swirl design...no wait, it's the multicolor...Can you tell I LOVE dichroic glass?? Have for years!

Laurel said...

Wow, these beads are amazing! I enjoyed the spotlight on wire. I am primarily a wire worker so obviously that would hit the spot. :) Thanks for a great website, blog and giveaway.

Wildcard said...

I love that exciting book Spotlight on Wire. I added you as friend on FB, shared on Twitter, and signed up to follow blog.

I liked the Spotlight on Jewelry Designer.

t2stoner@hotmail.com said...

I am inspired each day by what I wear. I cherish my handmade glass beads as they are awe inspiring and help to jack up my mood. I love art and wearing it is even better than hanging on the wall. These are inspiring just to look at and narrowing down what I have to have is going to be difficult. But knowing they are handmade makes them all the more special.

Maiden Star said...

I love the feature on _Spotlight on Wire_ - I've gotten really into wire work lately (a nice cross between the simpler chain maille and more intricate beadweaving I've done in the past)!

I follow the blog, have shared on Facebook and on Twitter, and have commented on the Facebook page (Carolyn Penney).

I can be contacted at carolyn@maidenstar.com

Thanks!

bonnie said...

very beautiful and different beads. will post on FB and follow your blog

Moonstone Mary said...

I worked for a glass artisan for a few years. It gave me an extra appreciation for the craftmanship that goes into dichroic creations. These glass pendants have an inner beauty that I can't wait to experience in person.

Phylis Johnson-Silk said...

I enjoy your blog, free patterns and especially the sales at your facility! Your products and ideas are the BOSS! Thanks for all you do.

I liked Spotlight on...Designer - Diane's pieces are lovely. What a great opportunity to get your name & jewelry "out there". The dichronic pendant & beads are beautiful!!

Anonymous said...

Did a double-take when I first saw those dichroic beads! They are supercalifragilistickexpialidocious!

andie said...

I love the wire book. More and more, I have been working with wire and those fabulous dichroic beads would be fabulous to work with. The other articles weren't slouchy either and I always learn so much from seeing what other designers are up to.

Authenic2u said...

I love the article by Margie Deeb. I like how she brings the colors which are my favorites into view as being the most insightful color palatee there is. I love the way you can put the focus on these colors. I put them together in several different ways, with a necklace which has a large pendant in 1 color with the hue which complements the shades of the rest of the colors in these shades. It turned out fantastic and I have received request from others to design something just like it for them. I love Margie Deeb and think that great minds work in the same way. Thank you for your Spotlight on her.

Just ordered Soft-Flex on line for the first time and I have to say "Great service!"

http://redhatlady.etsy.com said...

Wow, all six were great to consider, but the article by Charlene Gary was the one I could really identify with and relate to. First, she is a Libra, as am I. Then, she was in the same place I have been for about six weeks. What to do, what to start on, foggy brain, all of it was like she was writing about me. Therefore, after reading it, I have some inspiration and a place to start to come out of my funk. As always, I enjoy the blog! I will promote on twitter and on etsy. I don't have a face book account due to limited time. Thanks again, Rose

Wow! What else to say?

Doodlebug said...

I enjoyed the pics on the "Spotlight on" the local bead group & the featured designer. I need to see what others are beading, as a disabled person, this is my window on the beading world.

Shared on facebook, I am a blog follower, left comment on facebook and liked Softflex, and favorite part of the Spotlight On is the book---I'm always looking for new projects and inspiration and these always give me a clue as to quality books to buy or rent from the library for ideas. Would love to win these beads given the chance as I'm always looking for fun stuff to add to my projects.
