This book is listed in my sidebar for more information.
And if you're curious about the art of pysanky, here's a pretty good video that explains the process. And yes, I've done pysanky as well. I loved doing it with the kids as it had a very meditative quality to it.

The necklace with the circle at the bottom was made after I had been playing with a few different shapes. I moved the pieces around until I came to this shape. An abstract person. I hope to have these listed in my Etsy shop by the end of the week!

Have you gotten your copy of Lindly and Maggie's book yet (Polymer Clay Color Inspiration)? I just received mine yesterday and have only had a little bit of time to skim. Smashing colors!!! I know I'm going to love this book. Color Theory was my favorite class at RISD and I could use a refresher course. I look forward to following Lindly's blog as she posts her Weekend extras starting this Saturday to help move me along.
And now for my Etsy treasuries. I had the good fortune to be in a few treasuries this week. The first treasury I was in made the front page! And I'm sad to say (well, kind of) that the charcoal ring is no longer in my possession. This stunning treasury was created by fiveforty.
Her beautiful handwoven felted wool sweater rag rug of fiveforty's sure would have looked great in that treasury!
The next treasury was created by Dafnadagan. Thanks for making my bead POP off the page Dafna!As I perused Dafna's shop, I saw that her fabulous black magma pebble belt would have looked awesome in her treasury as well! I love those beach stones!
And the last treasury (which is still live) was created by Riskodesign.
Riskodesign (who may look awfully familiar) had these fun twin earrings that would have shined in that treasury!Thanks to the kind artists of Etsy for including me in their "other" creations! I'm sending the love back - hope you have a great weekend!
