I know you've been wondering where the new jewelry is.
Well, I've been taking a much-needed, must-have break. I'm exhausted, and in 2008 I way overextended myself. So right now, I'm getting ready for filing taxes, knitting a bit, playing Wii with my son, going to museums, reading a ton, and catching up with friends. I need to take more time to chill, to let my creativity recharge.
But never fear. I made a few things when I could rouse myself up to it, and I do have a show coming up February 7th. If you're in the Northern Virginia area and want to treat yourself to an all-jewelry show, click here for the info. And if you're near Easton, MD, I'm teaching a class at Evergreen Cove.
The other thing that's been going on behind the scenes is preparation for a new company. Lori Anderson Designs isn't going anywhere -- I'm just planning a new company, too. That probably won't hit the streets until later this year, but I promise to keep you posted.
But I've been stocking beads for this year -- don't believe me? This is ONE days' mail. One.
(As for the necklace above, it's fresh for spring, ready to be sold (so email me if you want it). I learned the technique from Stephanie Sersich, whose work is nothing short of amazing.)
