One World One Heart

Time again for the annual One World One Heart blog event.  What an amazing experience it was last year to go from blog to blog meeting new people and making connections with other artists around the world.  I lost track of time this year, but am entering the event at the last minute. 

As you can see by my other posts, I make jewelry.  I love everything about it - especially the experimentation involved in MY learning process.  My blog is a way of sharing with others that journey and attempting to show how my creative process works.

My "door prize" this year is a wonderful little leather bracelet - knotted and embellished with brass beads and a wonderful vintage brass button as a closure. 
To get your name in the hat, you should be a blogger; leave me a comment and a clear way to link back to you,  or leave an email address so you can be contacted if you should win. The final day for leaving comments is February 15th - at which point I will close the entry to comments and do a random drawing to determine the winner.  Best of luck to each of you - and I look forward to meeting you along the way!

**edited 2/15/2010 to add that I will close this posting to comments at midnight EST and at that point, using a random number generator, will pick the winner.  Thanks to all who left such kind comments on this post and others - I had a blast going from blog to blog this year.
