Some months ago Liz Kalloch contacted me and asked if I would participate in a project she was working on. In her words:
I was intrigued and interested in being a part of Liz's project. Tools, Liz explained are ones that I use nearly everyday in my work or personal life. Talismans, she explained, refers to anything that is potent or magical or filled with goodness—for me.
This is what I wrote:
I am: A Taster of Color
I believe that “presentation” sets the tone of our aesthetic journey. I love to make things look beautiful, the more mundane the objects, the more I search for just the right way to make them hopelessly appealing. Hence my addiction with glass vials, with perfect boxes, with a custom hanging system for all my fibers, (and fibers, and fibers). A little notebook for jotting down lists, an array of lip-glosses for lips that need a little perking up, and my mini business cards that introduce me visually, these are always with me. Sumptuous fibers to drool over, along with my gold plated needles that are, to me, the epitome of indulgence and Ultrasuede, one of man’s great contributions to our world; these are what I make my art with. Tools make me happy, and with my little hammer I form a sheet of metal into an object, what wonder! And then there is the gold bracelet that my grandmother gave me when I was born, with my name beautifully engraved in Hebrew letters. This is where I came from; all the others are where I’m going. When you don’t know where you came from, the journey forward will be very poorly lit.
You all know me by now, know my addiction to presentation. That includes, of course, how I store my supplies here at the studio and how I send orders out to you. Storing beads can be tricky, especially if you like looking at them and marveling at their beauty.
I'm now offering the same glass vials and matching acrylic boxes I use for your please, so you too can store your seed beads. These are 5/8 drams each, which is about 4 - 4.5 oz of seed beads, (this varies depending on the weight of the seed beads). 9 vials fit in the acrylic box perfectly! You can order multiples of 9, with a big discount. Check it all our HERE!!
Here is Pantone's description of their pairing:
Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.
Tonight is the first night of Hanukkah, the holiday I love so much! On the first night of Hanukkah, however, my father passed away, 8 years ago, and he is in my thoughts all day. Reid will make his specialty Latkes, (he has a fantastic recipe he loves to follow every year), and I will complain about the smell of frying in the house. It's a tradition. Whether you light candles or not, I wish you and yours to be hugged by the warmth of love and time spent together.
Now, have you heard about my new collections? BEADS! I'm going to have you pop over to see them on my site HERE where you can find details and descriptions. Here I'll just entice you with a few photos ;) In addition to the beads you receive a 15 page Instruction Guide on how to use beading in your needlepoint.
The last of the October Fiber Collections are being offered at a lovely discount! $10 off each of the remaining bundles, making it $55 for 12 gorgeous silk skeins/spools. That's CRAZY! In most cases there is only one bundle left, so don't let them slip away!
