I voted! I really like your design with glass.

Lynn said...

I just voted as commanded! :) You might want to update your blog -- your Stone entry is #20, NOT #19.

Did you notice that a couple of the entries have components from out friends at ZoaArt? I saw a tortured heart and some bronze wings...

Was good to see you last weekend...we WILL see you in NY, it's just a matter of the big WHEN.

Cheers,
Lynn

Lorelei said...

Hey Speaking of Bead Star, does anyone know who did the necklace #2 in the Hearts category?

I want to see a close-up pic of it!!

Heather Powers said...

great designs Andrew! I voted for your glass one, before I knew which ones belonged to you. Good luck!!!

Andrew Thornton said...

Thanks everyone for all your sweet encouragement and support! It really means a lot to me that people believe in my work as an artist and designer.

I think all too often, when you're isolated in your studio with only yourself as a critic and judge of all that you make, it's easy to fall into the trap of being self-conscious and self-doubting.

Thanks again to everyone who's voted for me!

Andrew Thornton said...

Thanks Lynn for letting me know! I changed it as soon as I read your comment. I guess they must have changed it, because it was #19 when I made the post. The picture, which I pulled off their website, was even titled "stone-19".

Andrew Thornton said...

And Lynn, I'm looking forward to your trip so much! It'll be GREAT!

Diego Britt said...
