I have been lurking around the flickr site lately. There are so many wonderful artists there, I can look at their work for hours. I discovered one artist that designs jewelry and collects vintage jewels, lace and birdies to name a few. The artists shop is http://www.bethquinndesigns.etsy.com/. Her flickr photos are incredible!
Someday when I have more time I want to learn how to make jewelry. I have been collecting vintage jewelry to incorporate them in my mixed media art. I also have alot of pearl necklaces that I want to hang soldered pendants from. I think the combination of the two look great!
