Library Journal
House Beautiful provides a look at a wealth of interiors showing how pink can be used to advantage in the hands of professional interior designers. Accompanying the more than 150 color photographs are captions in which designers describe their use of color in every room of the house, including entryways, family rooms, home offices, and patios. Included are two-page spreads depicting a room with a more in-depth explanation of the design and mood boards in which a designer puts together the furniture, fabrics, and colors for a project. The paint splotches with the name and manufacturer present a vivid display of the assortment of hues. A revealing look at the ways this color can be harmoniously incorporated into any décor.

Q: What is Viking knit jewelry, you ask?

A: Lovely handmade chains have been found in Viking treasure troves. Made from melted down coins turned into fine wire, these chains were made using a loop in loop technique. These same techniques can be used today, though we don’t tend to use coin silver anymore. Sterling silver and copper in a fine gauge is often used today.

Q: What are lamp work beads?

A: Lamp work Beads are handmade glass beads. Glass beads are crafted using a centuries-old process called lampworking. Rods of colorful glass are melted in a special torch and the molten glass is embellished using a variety of techniques and materials, creating unique and one-of-a-kind beads.

“I first got involved in sterling silver jewelry due to skin reactions from store bought jewelry. I took a few classes on soldering silver, then after that it just seemed to click, soon I was forging and creating my own jewelry, it just took off from there. I use sterling silver, hand crafted lamp work glass beads, semi-precious gemstones, Swarovski crystals, a few surprises, combined with a lot of love and passion to create jewelry that is chic, hip and truly unique.”
