One of the nicest people I have met through blogging is Susan from Hot Rocks. Not only is she a kind and giving person, she is an amazing bead artists. When you visit her blog at be sure to read her profile. She loves music and you can see in her work that she seems to incorporate musical notes into her jewelry. Jewelry that has the spirit of singing and dancing, how wonderful is that?

When I decided to start my Beadwright Beading business in 1986 there was a special woman in my life who saw something in my art that inspired her. She introduced me to the people I needed to know. She opened doors for me that would have been very difficult if not impossible for me to find much less go through. I have always given my dear friend Bonny this credit. Because of her I had the courage to sell my work all over the world to shops, galleries, and museums. Sometimes one just needs the right place, time, and person to be a success. That has been my desire. I am always looking for and then promoting artists in any venue. Blogging has allowed me to do more of this with fantastic artists such as

My hope, my dream is that I can inspire, give strength, and courage to artists to walk through the doors of success.
So I am opening the award door and presenting this award to 6 very deserving people.
