I was very happy to find out my swap partner is Emanda J from Artemisia's Studio. Emanda and I share the love of the sea, and I am fascinated at her knowledge and love of nature and wildlife. Emanda is an artist and art historian from Dallas/Fort Worth Texas, and she creates gorgeous earrings with lampwork beads,
beautiful prayer bead jewelry as well as incredible colorful angel wings from pewter.
She's also a quilter and enjoys all types of art mediums. Emanda says her jewelry designs and other creations are inspired by her knowledge of medieval and renaissance art and architecture.
Art Quilt Older than Stonehenge
I can't wait to see the batch of beautiful soup elements Emanda is whipping up to send my way! I'll be sure to update you on the beads and the end result!
Emanda's beautiful creations can be found here in her Artemisia Studio Etsy shop!
