Originally trained in photography and printmaking, after graduation I focused on a new discovery: art quilts. This allowed me to continue to manipulate the areas of flat color I loved in screen prints in a medium that didnt require expensive equipment, wasnt messy, and spoke of home arts and comfort, while creating large, bold pieces. Many changes of address and the desire for an art form requiring less space has brought me, in the past few years, to jewelrymaking, though I still continue to design textile art. I also continue to make photographs, and love the new digital format. I became disabled in 1999, but this has slowed rather than stopped my artistic endeavors, and Im now building a thriving jewelry business. My website is under construction, but please visit my Etsy page!

Re: Vintage Jewels Made New

How do you keep the heat of the torch from damaging the rhinestone earrings? Is it not a problem?

Really cool. I was given a box of vintage costume jewelry and would like to try this.

Thanks!! -- Terri, http://heronmoon.etsy.com

Re: Make It Pink: How to Make a 'Millie Box'

And, although my initial inclination was to plan one, thinking I'd make it more durable, with masonite and quilted fabric and a polymer clay knob I'd designed for the top, a couple of minutes' thought produced an "aha": the very paper, fragile, transient nature of it is, actually, perfect. It should be meant to be discarded, after the cancer has been beaten. In addition to being an excellent storyteller and a skillful and original craftsperson, Mr. Rudell is an unusually intuitive person--and, even more, an unusually intuitive male of the species. Thanks for sharing both the plans and the insight.

Re: How to Make a Valentine from an Onion

I am astonished at the creativity and energy involved in this project, as well as at the loveliness of the outcome. Quite impressive a skill set, atop the inventive nature of the author's thought processes. Congratulations on an article written well and well worth reading!

Re: Making Crochet Mesh/Netting

My Internet Explorer couldn't open the "Crochet Me tote" link you provided, for some reason.

Thanks for the basic pattern! I made a Fun Fur shawl using the same mesh pattern, but I couldn't figure out how to divide the first row of single crochet to make a skinnier version. Knowing how to divide it up helps so much!

And thanks for the newsletter, which I enjoy. Best wishes!
