The lovely Sarah from piecebypeacedesigns has been ever so generous! From now until Saturday October 17, 2009 y'all will have a chance to win a fab pair of earrings!!! They are pale green marble wrapped in sterling silver wire and hang on sterling silver hooks - they're darling~
Before I show you a photo of what's up for grabs, I'm gonna let y'all get to know Sarah (from Fresno) a little better via a mini-interview!
How did you get started?
I started playing around with a bowl of beads that had been my grandmother's when I was about 14. I would make bracelets sometimes but I really liked just putting my hands in the bowl and feeling the beads. Years later, I remembered that bowl of beads and bought my own beads and just started putting pieces together. I remember her a lot when I make my jewelry.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
guess, I got my inspiration from her. I also LOVE to listen to music when I create. Opera and classical (Verdi, Chopin) really inspire me.
Tell us one thing that most people don't know about you?
There isn't a whole lot people don't know about me, I am really open. Life is life right? Wow, this is really hard...Ah, One of my real dreams is to become a painter! I would LOVE to be able to paint the serenity or chaos I see in my head.
Any advice for newbies starting out?
My advice for the newbies is be patient and don't give up! It is hard getting noticed but when you do something you love, it's worth the time it takes to get your work out there. Another thing is stay true to who you are through your art. It is a reflection of who you are and that makes it beautiful!
Now I've gotta show you my fave piecebypeacedesigns first before I give y'all the contest rules:
Have a look at these lovely items:)
(I've gotta mention that I have a thing for lockets. I've always loved them and own two of my own. This necklace is a must-have for me!)
