This week's very lucky winner is Tabby/Crooked Heart Art! Congratulations! You win a bead from Lynn Davis of Expedition D. Please send your postal address to the Lynn!
Welcome to the Humblebeads' studio today. I wanted to share some new items that I've been working on, more etched metal! It's so much fun. For this series I wanted to make snowflake ornaments and pendants. I picked up some stamps from the local craft show and then checked out the angel policy from the stamp companies. Drats, they weren't angel companies and I couldn't use the stamps to make items to sell. (Angel companies allow artists to use the stamps for limited editions, check with the stamp company's website to find out their policy.)
Okay, so what's a girl to do? Why make my own stamps! I looked up some photos of snowflakes that were in the public domain. From there I sketched out my design and carved my own rubber stamps.
What magic do you look forward to during the winter holidays? Leave a comment and next week we'll draw one winner who will receive a snowflake pendant.
