Candace, my beading buddy and fellow townie, has put me on her Make My Day List. This is a list of links to those who have really inspired me lately. Oh, I know who I have to put!!! The following ladies are not just inspirational but I know them in real life because they live near me or from etsyBead activities. Ladies, I just drink in your creativity! I love what I am doing with beads, but I also love what you do, that I could never do, because you've taken a different direction into uncharted territories where I cannot follow!
How to send a You Make My Day award:
1. Write a post with links to five blogs that make me think and/or make my day.
2. Acknowledge the post of the award giver.
3. Display the 'You Make My Day Award' logo.
4. Tell the award winners that they have won by commenting on their blogs with the news.
Candy - because of her totally unique leafy tendril earrings AND OMG!!! Look at these amazing Tribal Spirit earrings!!! Candy is the Queen of beautifully antiqued and forged sterling silver.
Augusta - look at this lovely handworked sterling filigree, I am in awe!
Deb - my mentor from etsyBead Street Team, who makes lovely concoctions from Hong Kong, halfway across the world! Deb has an unexpected and freshly lovely color sense I treasure and that inspires me!
Lucia - who I found through Etsy Local, and who lives just a couple minutes away from me in Allentown. She creates elegant, juicy, lovely pieces with vintage style and impeccable detail. I love her bright colors and the way she combines them.
Lawatha - with whom I'm collaborating as part of an etsyBead/Glass Artists campaign. I'm having a TERRIBLE time selecting one of Lawatha's glorious pendants to create a beaded necklace - they're all so beautiful!
