Studio Saturday with Jennifer Jangles
Welcome to Studio Saturday! Each week one of our contributors gives you a sneak peek into their studio, creative process or inspirations. We ask a related question of our readers and hope you'll leave comments! As an incentive we offer a free prize each week to bribe you to use that keyboard. The following week we choose a random winner.
Last weeks winner is Erin(comment 5). Congratulations you've won one a set of the transparent Turquoise Links and Double Dips from Cindy . Send Cindy an e-mail and she will get it right out to you.
This week we are in the studio with Jennifer Heynen of Jennifer Jangles.
This week is a busy, busy week for me. I am packing up and heading out to Bead and Button! I will be teaching five classes and selling my beads and buttons at the show. There's lots going on in the studio. I have been showing lots of shots from the studio over at my own blog, so I thought it would be fun to show you some of my new pendants here at the Art Bead Scene Blog. I always want to have new work for the show so that way when my customers come to my booth and ask "what's new?" I have something to show them. This year I will have lots!
I am in love with Ready Stamps, that's where I get my custom made stamps made. They are a great company that always does high quality work. I drew up these new pendants this spring, got the stamps made, and have been playing with glazes. These are a few of my favorites. The starfish above has several different oranges on the pendant for depth and texture.
Still to this day, I am in love with my "wow" color combination. I can't stop glazing beads and pendants in lime green, turquoise, black, and white. I am always happy with how they turn out.
Last of the pendants I will be showing you today is my little birdhouse. My woodland birds needed a home and now they have one.
This week will be a super easy question, and if you answer it you will be added into the drawing to win one of my new birdhouse pendants. Will you be going to Bead and Button this year? If you are coming, please stop by and say hello, I am in booth 1103.
