RIGHT ON! 4 of my ZNETShow Designs are going to Tuscan!

I received my email this morning from Bill, ZNETShows. Saying

"Congrats! 2 Necklaces and 2 pairs of earrings have been chosen for our Tucson booth."
WOW...I am so excited. I know this is going to be a good sign for me. I think my good vibes are coming from my Aunt who had passed away a couple of years ago. The color of beads which I received were her colors Im sure. She loved the beach and with this challenge she was always on my mind. THANK YOU AUNTIE, you are my guardian Angel.

Not only were 4 of my designs accepted, I was also offered a permanent position to be on the design team. Well, of course I am accepting the position with pride.

ZnetShows Challenge

Well, I could not sleep tonight, not sure if it’s the excitement of today. First of all, at work, we are doing a chili cook off, and I just have this gut feeling we are going to win!! Oh yea, I can make a mean chili. Of course, our students are really the ones making it. I work with young adults with mild cognitive differences and they are great!

Aside from that, today is the day when ZNETShows choose the pieces they want to take with them to Tucsan. I really enjoyed making all the pieces and hope that a few of them get chosen. I am positive we will all have at least one or more pieces at Tuscan because there is not one piece of jewelry here that I would not be proud of to wear… :-)

UPDATE! Tomorrow is when ZNETShows chose the finalist to have their jewelry pieces taken and displayed in Tucson. You can check out the event here.

SOoooo, since I have been awake for an hour already…UHH..actually since 4am….I decided I would put together all the blogs of the artists who have been creating as much as I have for this fun event. There is no order to the blogs, but take a peek at them and enjoy all their fantastic jewelry creations…

UPDATE! I now copied the list from ZNETShows website so now all of the links are correct.

ZnetShows Challenge, a set on Flickr.

First 2 sets of earrings...YAY

Well, between making dolls and making bullet earrings, I squeezed in making 2 pairs of earrings for Znetshows.  I was lucky and got colors I know I can work with. You know I love to work with copper, love the aged look of it and how fun it is to beat up.LOL  So below are my little creations...I hope you like them as much as I do.

By the way, I dont know if I mentioned this, but I bought this super cool lens attachment that makes these beautiful pictures I have been taking. Its a close up and wide angle attachment and is so much fun to play with. Please feel free to give me your input. ENJOY

I am on a Design team...OMG!

Ok, so its like this...I got an email a few days ago and was asked by ZNETSHOWS if I would be interested in being on their design team for an event they are having in Tuscan. Well, I know I am not the only one who was asked, but I still feel blessed and excited about doing this. Of course I said..WELL HECK YA! In the email they stated that they would send a few beads for me to created my jewelry design from. So I was expecting a few you see below, I got more than a few beads. I am so excited to do this. I dont have a lot of time to work on creating the jewelry but I have some great ideas. So with all those fantastic beads you see below I am going to have me some fun. I will keep you posted on my progress...Wish me luck that they get chosen to go to Tuscan! Please take a minute to visit their site and check out all of their new beads... YUM
