Inspired by Reading at artBliss...

This photo was taken at the recent jewelry-making/artist retreat in the Washington D.C. area called artBliss.  It was snapped by Diana Ptaszynski of Suburban Girl Studio and features Terri Greenawalt at the display for the Inspired by Reading Book Club!  Jenny Davies-Reazor was kind enough to give up some of her table space and they presented samples of work made in response to the books and some of the book selections that inspired their creations.  Christine Damm, one of the instructors at artBliss, contributed her polymer clay dragon to the display as well!  I'm so proud of them and their hard work. I really appreciate them spreading the word and hopefully drumming up more participants for this fun challenge!

The October selection for the book club is, "My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me" edited by Kate Bernheimer.  For this month, you can base your piece off of the entire book or one of the short stories, as the book is an anthology of 40 retold fairy tales.  Can't wait to see what you make!

REALLY inspiring. I love books so much Andrew, and to have cross- creativity between writing and jewelry design is terrific!
