This is going to sound like I'm sucking up, but I'm really not.
When I first started making jewelry, I went in search of jewelry blogs. I am also a huge fan of food blogs and I know from that experience that you can get a lot of great ideas from other people. The very first blog I found was Silver Parrot. I thought she might be my twin! She loves all the same colors I do - whatever reminds her of the beach! She also has a love of lampwork and so do I. Then there's the Bead Porn she does every Friday! It's literally the high point of my week! The night I found her blog, I literally spent HOURS reading the whole thing all the way back to the first post.
She started blogging six years ago and to celebrate, she is having a giveaway. You really should go over to her post and find out how to enter! She's been sick with a summer cold so I don't have a picture of what she's giving away, but when she posts one, I'll show you!
