Spreading Our Wings Blog Hop

I am so excited about the blog hop today… for those of you who have not hopped before, a blog hop is a group of people who post blogs on the same day with a similar theme… It is so much fun! Our blog hop is about spreading our wings and inspired by our Flying Lessons Ecourse with Kelly Rae Roberts and the group of friends we have made through this class. This group of amazing artists and friends have offered encouragement, support, feedback and a safe place to launch… I am so thankful!

I believe I have always had a postive attitude and since I discovered wire, I have finally felt like I am doing what I am meant to do… create with wire. It brings me so much joy! I am living in a dream right now with my line with Demdaco/Silvestri launching… I think I always knew I could fly… The course helped nudge me along to take some of the steps with social media and organization that I was missing!

My inspiration is a bit literal… I created some jewelry that incorporates “spreading our wings”…

WHIMSICAL WING… This necklace was created using some gorgeous vintage white rose beads…


The second necklace I created is called THE KEY TO FLY… And includes a trio of pendants… A hand formed wing I created out of wire and a vintage rhinestone necklace, I wrapped each stone to create a unique sparkly wing… A skeleton key wired with rhinestones and a sweet bird stamped out of a vintage tray.


My third necklace I CAN FLY has a trio of the beautiful vintage rose beads… It is another wing… Poised for flight.


All three necklaces will be available in my etsy shop at http://www.cherishdesigns.etsy.com.

And to honor this special day, I am offering a coupon in my etsy shop! (I know, I finally, finally listed some items in etsy… I hope you enjoy!)


I connected with this amazing group of artists by taking an ecourse called Flying Lessons from
Artist, Author, & Possibilitarian Kelly Rae Roberts . This blog hop includes
some of the artists that have connected through a private facebook group. The
experience of connecting with other artists in a comfortable and supportive
setting has made such an impact on me personally. The theme of our blog hop is
Spreading Our Wings… I think you are going to be amazed by the incredible art
and inspiration that you will find on the following blogs!
