Jewelry As Art

We’ve all heard the saying “Art Imitates Life.” I think that’s a very true statement no matter what the art or what the medium. All art is really from nature and so as artists we’re really just trying to imitating the handiwork of God, the original artist.

Fun with a Copper Cuff

We had a fun time at the Bouncing Bead last Saturday making a copper cuff bracelet. Even though copper is a little harder to work with than silver, you can still get stunning results.

Don’t Fear the Flame

“I want to learn how to solder but I’m SO afraid of the torch!” I hear this all the time. Many artists that create beautiful, beaded creations want to go to the next level and learn to solder so that they can add pendants to their pieces. What’s holding them back? Fear of fire!
