Giveaway Feature - Gundowerks!

This Giveaway is Closed.
Check back on Monday for the next one!

Sorry we missed last weeks giveaway - but we're back up and running - and I love what we have to giveaway this week! But first - do you want to be featured on this blog and get lots of attention for a full week? Let me know! I'm looking to fill some upcoming weeks :) 

1. Where can we find your work and what do you create?

My work is for sale at Artfire: I create a very eclectic variety, using primarily polymer clay, stones and wire. I do quite a few pendants and brooches, earrings of all kinds, and I also have hand beaded wall hangings. Coming soon will be greeting cards and hair adornments! You never know what you'll find in my shop.

2. What's your favorite part about being an independent artist?

I do this mainly for fun, so my favorite part is the freedom. I'm a stay at home Mom and my time gets a bit limited, but when I set down at the table to create I feel fantastic.

3. Where do you find your inspiration?

Everywhere. I get ideas all the times from jewelry, clothing, nature... but my greatest inspiration is pulling out my art supplies and just starting to fiddle.

4. What advice would you give to other artists?

The primary advice I give is advice I struggle to take every day: Believe in yourself. It's hard to have faith in your own ability, but it's essential to being an artist. Other than that, the most important thing is quality. Try to use the best elements you can afford, and never make something to sell that you wouldn't wear yourself or give as a gift.

Now for the Wonderful Giveaway Prize!

What a wonderful looking heart! I like the look of polymer clay but could never get them made without funger prints. So I adore from afar!

Absolutely love the Victorian Lady Faux Cameo Pendant. Cameo's give one such a look of elegance and a terrific heirloom.
