Kathryn Designs Jewelry: Gifted on The Wendy Williams Show

Once again, The Artisan Group has opened up a huge door for Kathryn Designs!
My { No Time For} Fool's Gold necklace will be making the trip to The Wendy Williams Show for a special segment and Oscars Swag giveaway episode on February 22nd.

If you have a Pinterest addiction, like me, you will probably love The Artisan Group's board of all the amazing handcrafted creations that will be gifted on the show!  You will find everything from bath and body products, jewelry, stationery, scarves, hair accessories, and even a gorgeous clutch handbag.

Inspired by the gold faceted polymer beads I created last month, I decided to make some beautiful bling-ed out statement necklaces using small and large versions of the beads, crystal beads, and crystal rondelles.  I hope Wendy loves the necklace!

Kathryn Designs: Now obsessed with metal clay and some exciting press

It is hard to believe that it is already February.  Between the holidays, a bout of the flu, and lots of creative irons in the fire, I have been a blog slacker!

I was so honored to have my business and my "story" featured in WomanScope NewsMagazine.  Thank you to Jewel McFadden for writing such a beautiful article about my business and the inspiration behind my work.

 I am also thrilled to share a link to my faceted gold bead tutorial as featured in the February/ March issue of The Maryland Women's Journal.  If you click the link and visit the site, you can download a PDF of the full issue, which will include photos of the project.  The necklaces I created using these beads are headed to the set of a talk show, to be gifted to the host of the show and the executive producer in a special segment about Oscars Swag Bags.  More details to come soon about this great opportunity via The Artisan Group!!

I have also been busy cooking up some new jewelry made with "Goldie Bronze" metal clay.  I have to say, I LOVE this clay! I just listed a few pieces in my shop and have several more on the way.  I have decided to add a whole new line of bronze clay, white bronze clay, and silver clay jewelry to my collection.  Could this be my new obsession?
