WARNING...VERY LONG POST !!
Hi ladies!! have you read about this extraordinary adventure on the blogs of Cindy, Sharon and Renate ?
They are better speakers than me and it's hard to be the last one, because most of things have been said!
, I will show you some pics of vero's necklace, she was number five of the robin's girls.. but she have a lot of work, she is lampwork-girl now, and have many many orders before Christmas.
I will try " à ma sauce" as we say in French
I was friend with Sharon, our Sharon! she really make me love handmade jewelry, and made me addicted... then i started to make my little tests. There was a big jewelry exchange in USA, with Loreleil , but deadlines was very shorts and 6 day for a package to cross the ocean was impossible for this turn . Vero and me were quite sad..wheeeeeeeeeeeeen:
the story begin on 08/08/2009 with this e-mail from Cindy :
Hello Esther, Renate and Veronique
I had an idea that I wanted to share with you.[....Cindy explain to us that Diane Cook can't participate unfortunately, but had this great idea!! ..] Would you be interested in a necklace "round robin" with the 5 of us ( Sharon Borsavage) ....it would be something very casual without a lot of rules or stringent deadlines. I think this would be a great collaborative experience. Each of us could start one necklace and send it off to the next one....and could specify some preferences as far as a theme, colors, or necklace length. I wanted this to be fun so we wouldn't want to impose strict deadlines. What do you think?
Please let me know your thoughts...I'm very open to anything. Just wanted this to be fun, and thought it would be great to have a piece of art jewelry in the end from some of our online jewelry friends from around the world. :-)
****What could i say?? i had opened my jewelry's blog 1 month before, and was a "secret admirer" of Cindy , Sharon, Renate, and Veronique!! ****
So, i started my little portion and ask for a long necklace with all metals we can ( copper, silver and brass.)
here my soldered rings.
one portion, one portion plus one portion... after vero's it was already that!!!!
As you will see Renate offers me 3 ways of wearing this necklace, as it is very long, what a clever friend no?
the big focal is from Véronique
Cindy add beautiful and strange stones... , Sharon porcelain and stamped copper piece..
Every body wrote and draw on the journal..!! wow!!
pics of Veronique's necklace , she wanted copper and green tones...
She started with this big focal in the middle,
beautiful isn't it?
unfortunately i did not have beautiful pictures because all ( necklace and journal) is in Usa.. why??
Because Cindy make our dream come true... all of us are in the "belle armoire "magazine , winter 2010!
I would like to thanks my " round robin" sisters, all of them make me stronger, and make me dream...
Thank you stampington editions.. wow...
I would like to thank you all, readers , always a support for me !!
I offer a little give away to thank you, just let a message after this post,( no follower you are welcome too!! ) You can win this micro book, perfect for a necklace, it is in leather with a beautiful virgin Marie, you can read " donner", that mean GIVE ..
definition: Romizous: totally invented word , in French , to say "Hugs" , we say "Bisous" ( kisses) , we can say "gros bisous" (big hugs ) in a strange an totally crazy language it can become romizous..used by a bit crazy girls.. first i don't learn nothing about English in 1 year, second, i teach impossible words to my foreign friends....isn't it a shame??
Thank you !!
