Eye of the Hurricane, Wire Wrapped PendantIf I had to pick one element predominant to Florida, I’d pick hurricanes. Though they can be devastating, their immense power displays incredible beauty with a mesmerizing swirl. The primary project uses a large crystal in a ‘sew-on’ type setting, but since not everyone has access to those; variations are included for using a coin bead or plain round beads. It’s also easily adaptable from a vertical pendant, to a horizontal focal, and even to a focal/clasp on a bracelet.

Yes! I admit it – I’ve been (and still am) an ‘April Watch’ addict, much to the dismay of my family friends, and part-time work. My iPad has been on the Animal Adventure Park live feed 24/7 since they started the live feed back in February.
One women on FB summed up my exact situation when she commented on how much her family was sick of her crying ‘wolf’ every time April raised her tail, and she had now announced the birth of well over 100 poos. LOL
April the Giraffe went into full blown labor early this morning (approx. 7:07am EST 4/15/2017), and along with millions of other Giraffeaholics watched the amazing birth of their new baby boy – though I just now got the text from the park announcing the gender. Yes, I signed up for the text messaging 😉 After all this time watching, I wasn’t about to miss it.
I’ve included Animal Adventure Park’s live video of the event, just in-case you missed it 😉 If you’d rather just skip to the good bits, fast forward to about 27:00 minutes into the video.
If you’d like to see all the wonderful photos and videos – including Baby’s first stand (yes I cheered that on too – along with my own sound effects) you can find them on Animal Adventure Park’s Facebook page.
Someone else wrote (on FB) that she thought after the baby was born, she’d go back to her normal life, but no, she’s still glued to watching the live feed. She said “I think I need an intervention”. Maybe I do to….. nah, I can work AND watch the feed too. It was/is a once in a lifetime experience, that’s not likely to happen again anytime soon.
Back to creating sparklies – see you again soon!
I’m so very thrilled and blessed to have my wire wrapped version of the Princess Diana/ Princess Kate Engagement Ring featured in the October/November 2016 issue of Step by Step Wire Jewelry Magazine!! AND it made the cover too – woo hoo!! Denise Peck, chief editor for the magazine, also wrote a truly lovely intro for it.
There are a few ‘typos’ in the issue, that will be corrected in the digital version, but sadly it’s too expensive to correct and reprint the newsstand version. One of the most important ‘boo boos’ (aside from spelling my name wrong on the cover) is they listed my Etsy shop, MyWiredImagination.ety.com as having the wire for the project – um…. no! The resources should’ve read: Wire and Tools from RioGrande.com , Crystals and settings from MyWiredImagination.Etsy.com, and crystal beads from EurekaCrystalBeads.com
All in all, I’m really thrilled with how it turned out!! Look for the issue on newsstands starting Sept 15th!

My Fanciful Flowers Earrings pattern is featured in the Feb/March 2014 issue of Step by Step Wire Jewelry – WooHoo 🙂 I’ve actually known for some time, but it didn’t seem real until I saw the actual magazine for myself.
I am thrilled and honored to be included among the talented artists and designs chosen for this issue. If you don’t have a subscription to this wonderful magazine (you really should), check your local bead store, Barnes and Noble bookstore, or JoAnn Fabrics.
You can also purchase the single issue directly from Interweave.com .
