Today, I got my photographs labeled, resized and uploaded. The slideshow below shows Sharon's book as if you are flipping through it in real life. You'll see both of our altered artwork sprinkled throughout her book. My own altered book that we have also been working on collaboratively is with Sharon now and whenever she is ready and has time to finish it, I will gladly welcome it home. I don't mind waiting!
There is also a companion album where I have included more process photos and work done by both Sharon and I, in my nature themed AB. You'll find it here.
thanks for visiting!
Cindy of Sweet Bead Studio has unraveled the wonderful story about this amazing collaborative project involving five women living all over the world.

Their story has also been published in the winter issue 2011 of Somerset's Belle Armoire Jewelry. Congratulations to all, on many levels!

|The hanging earring you see, the middle beaded necklace with leaf pendant and the longest necklace on a cord were made by my dear friend, Sharon Borsavage.|

This is what my dear friend Sharon Borsavage said to me in a note she wrote when she sent me the beautiful beaded necklace I'm wearing AND also so very sweetly enclosed a beautiful set of earrings to match. Isn't it true? Never enough? I already have a number of pieces Sharon has made that she has given me, we've traded or I've bought, not to mention jewelry I have that was made by other dear friends of mine. I certainly don't mind more! I also have had many pieces given to me with love by friends and family, like the amethyst necklace you see me wearing (always) that my dad gave me. I even wear jewelry that I've made myself, so I have to agree with Sharon, never enough! To see close-up pictures of the necklace Sharon made that I fell in love with and just had to have, please go here: Livewire Jewelry. To see more of the beautiful jewelry Sharon makes that she has for sale, visit her etsy site (that is where I purchased the necklace). You will be really glad you did! Thank you so much, Sharon. I absolutely love my necklace(s) and earrings!!
I also just received a gorgeous pair of earrings made by my friend and artist Sharon Borsavage -wow!! I love the lotus flowers Sharon stamped and the delicateness of these earring. I am obviously very blessed in friendship, love and jewelry!
