Handmade Artists' Forum Blogtastic: Heather's Haven

You'll notice one thing about my jewelry -- I don't work with the tiny beads. Those wee, willy nilly seed ones that make me squint and send my fingers sprawling trying to keep up with them. I have a HUGE amount of respect and admiration for crafty folks who not only work with these tiny wonders but create amazing jewelry. Although Heather creates in other media, it's the teensy bead aspect I'm focusing on for my blogtastic feature.

Take this beaded cuff with Russian serpentine, just lurve this!

Heather is extremely active and supportive on the Handmade Artists' Forum. I love that she takes the time to comment on other posts and keep the Share the Love program going.

Haha, Heather, I was wondering why I hadn't seen that bracelet! It's GORGEOUS!! I especially love the detailing around the stone in the middle.

Great detective work, Sharon!! ;)

I can't even imagine the time it takes to create such beautiful pieces of wearable art. Great find!

Heather's Haven said...

In response to your tweet, LOL! naw you didn't bust me out, I just thought it was funny, I spent so much time with those pictures this week that it took me a minute to realize that this one wasn't posted in my shops!

the daily listing is doing something, I've made two sales since the 1rst!
I love positive reinforcement!

OMG Russian Serpentine!! GASP!! 2nd favorite stone to Labradorite...I work in serpy so much I love the ultra fine veiny-ness of this stone!!

Very pretty use of the stone. Not my style of jewelry but I love the way you've used the stone!!
