Spotlight on... Jewelry Designs from Nature by Heather Powers9:00 AM
by Heather Powers
Author Heather Powers is an intuitive designer. Last year at the BeadandButton Show I had the extreme pleasure of bumping into Heather in a food line. We ended up having an unexpected lunch together. She is as lovely and thoughtful in person as you might imagine she is from looking at her work. She proudly shared a picture of the cover of her book, which was not quite out yet. I was sold! I knew that I'd have to pick up a copy as soon as possible! When my copy arrived, I read it from cover-to-cover, which is something that I rarely do with jewelry-making books. The designs and ideas in this book are a feast for the eyes and a comfort to the soul. Drawing inspiration from nature is certainly not a new concept but Heather's unique view makes the subject matter feel fresh.
