exciting update!

At long last the cover of the book!
we got to see it last week for the first time!
our wounderful art director Marissa did one amazing job!
to pass your art to another artist and then have there spin put into is just what this book is about... sharing what you do the best with some one that has a different skill then you and then steeping back and allowing the process unfold.

I want to also congratulate my fellow cover girls from right to left:
Deryn, Catherine, Jess and Crystal!

If you have enjoyed the brilliant works created by the artists in the Simply Charming exchange, be sure to look for even more amazing artistry next spring. An Artful Exchange: connect create collaborate is a fabulous collaborative mixed media jewelry art book from the minds of Ruth Rae and Kelly Snelling bursting with the handiwork of many of the original artists from the Simply Charming exchange plus additional spectacular guests. available from North Light Publishing, Spring 2008! You can pre-order your copy today here.

Thank you for the update! I've used your concept for a charm exchange through my Fiskateers group and idea's for my self! I also just saw your bracelet while browsing through the Sommerset selection at Barnes the other day.

Thanks for sharing on your blog!

How wonderful! I just happened across your blog... can't even remember how, but here I am. I tried my hand at soldering last year and am hoping to get into making some soldered charms for family and friends soon. I'll definitely be back for inspiration.

Delicious, the brief peeks I have had make it seem so do able, even for someone like me who feels a bit daunted by jewelry. I especially love the mix of fabric and metal...love, Dneese
