Lorelei & Cristi and thank you my friends


I know I've said it before but each time I see one of my little pieces in your work my heart skips a beat. It is that vision that is expanded beyond my small view that I find inspiring. Recently Cristi and Lorelei posted images of their designs using my components. Beautiful. Clearly both are very talented designers and I feel honoured to see my components used in their work.


I'm starting a montlhy art market this Saturday. It is daunting. I've never put my jewelry components and buttons out locally. Often when I'm asked what I do and tell people that I make porcelain buttons and jewelry components, I am met with a blank stare. Not everyone. I do have dear friends here who understand what I do. Each time I see one of my components in your beautiful work, it is like a gift.


It is late. I should be in bed. But I am truly grateful to all of you that I've had the good fortune to know here. I'll be carrying that with me into what I am finding a bit of a scary adventure.

Thank you

Beautiful jewellery! I'm sure pendants and components will go down a storm at the market

Oh, LeAnn!
Courage, my love! I know how you feel, because posting my jewellery for everyone to see has had me shaking in my shoes for the last couple of months.
Of course, not everyone will be able to appreciate what you do. This is something we all face. There are people that do not share our perception of beauty. How sad for them!
Please remember that there are many people that will find your components beautiful. And we are still here, cheering you on.
Sending many hugs ...

LeAnn, your work is incredible! I also think it is very scary sometimes to put yourself out there, and sometimes the reaction is not all that I had hoped for, but I think it is important to try and establish that connection. And it takes time. Your facing a much smaller market than the web, there will always be people that appreciate a beautiful and quality product such as yours. Just flow with it, like Renate said, you always have us!

Thanks all of you. It really does mean a lot to me to have the support I get from each of you. Now crazy woman is off to be pedantic about her display.

I too love your work. I found you thru Lorelei's blog and hope to design some of my pieces with your art work.
Good luck at the art market!
