Tammy from Tammy’s Treasure Chest, creator of some of the coolest jewelry out there has bestowed upon me a Brilliante Weblog Award!
Oh, my goodness. I feel faint! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Wow, what an honor, I never expected it! There are so many people who have influenced me and inspired me to create and blog. I feel pretty unworthy to have been given this award, but I promise to work hard to deserve it. :)
In passing the torch, I am nominating the following blogs to receive this award as well. I know several of them have received it from other bloggers, but that just attests to the pure, yummy goodness of their blogs!
- Something Sublime (Deryn Mentock) I never cease to be inspired by this woman’s art and acts of kindness.
- Nomadic Creations (Stacie Florer) You will see her blog a lot for these awards! Along with Deryn, Stacie’s was one of the 1st blogs I started reading daily. She makes really cool metal jewelry as well!
- McFarland Designs – I love looking at Tamara’s jewelry creations, especially her rings, plus I like the pictures of her chickens, since I am a country girl!
- Chris Kerr Jewelry – Chris makes some of the neatest etched copper jewelry and wears her faith proudly for all to share!
- Delia Stone’s Studio – Delia makes gorgeous wire-wrapped jewelry and writes some great tutorials as well!
- A Metalsmith’s Journey (Janice Fowler) – Janice has already received this award, but I included her on my list because she always links to some great jewelry-making resources out there and runs a really cool forum as well (Jewelry Artists Network)
- Kab’s Creative Concepts (Kerry Bogert) – I have only been reading Kerry’s blog for a while, but I always get drawn in to the fun lampwork and jewelry designs…you will too!
