Taking A Moment

This is a little tribute to my friend and glass artist, Amanda Craigmyle, whose beads were the first I fell in love with and fueled my passion for designing jewelry from the very start. Amanda just recently passed away after a long battle with cancer.  She's been on my mind constantly and as I was flipping through photos of our collaborations over the past 12 years I thought I'd share some.



A special bond is formed when one artist passes their work to another, this is common to jewelry designers which is unlike most art.

       


























Rest in peace, my sweet friend ~ your art and spirit live on...
