1- I don''t know her name but her nick is Txin-Txin - she is a very talented and nice young girl expertising in jewelry and accessories from resin mainly
2 -Veronique Erramuzpe - an amazing cardboard furniture artist
She does beautiful jewelry from Resin. I bought from her a necklace before I knew anything about beads and I haven't stop appreciating it.
I can see she is mentioned in the following links - but I found no site nor blog. As we say in hebrew "Haval" (=it's ashame).
I took this picture during an extraordinary artfairy in Bayonne (France), about 2 years ago, on the 12.7.2006.
When I saw the sight you can look at in the pictures below, I decided I MUST learn how to do cardboard furniture. I met Veronique in her small shop and I asked her if she was giving workshops. She told me she was planning to. I asked if she had a site and the answer was negative. Since I had to leave Bayonne at that time and I have few days in Paris, I managed to find the last copy of a french book on cardboard furniture:
"Meubles et objets en carton by Michèle Papin"
This is how in August 2006, when Omer was in Lebanon, I started to learn how to make for him a "chevet"
Now, it's been a year I didn't touch the cardboard.
Since that meeting with Veronique, every now and then I am checking the net to see if maybe she has changed her mind and opened a site or blog. Each time - I am disappointed to discover that she hasn't. She is doing such beautiful things that are giving such positive feelings and inspiration - that I wish I could see her creations more often on the net...
I discovered this blog today while looking for Txin-txin and Veronique Erramuzpe. She is from the same region in France.
Lolomosquito is doing magnificent candy jewelry - I would buy them all!!! :=)
I admire her compositions and colours
I recommend you to visit her site and/or blog:

We had an extraordinary and fun evenning with friends, celebrating Frida's birthday! (N.B. it's not the same Frida as in an older post http://judith27k.blogspot.com/2008/01/6108-study-in-design.html).Actually, Frida's birthday was on the 7.3.08 but she kindly asked me when it fits us to come for the party she was organizing and fixed it upon that.

This project of "Braided Circlets" (designed by Jeanette Shanigan) appears on p.49 in the Beadwork magazine from October-November 2006. Each loop takes about 20 mn.

I wanted to make this project as a present for my sister Dvorah, for her birthday that was in January. I told it to her and I asked her what colours she would like me to do it. She answered she would like "navy blue and brown". She wasn't sure if the colours match together and I didn't think too much... Huaaa..... I think it looks a disaster! :(
I already have plan B, C and D in case she doesn't like it (B - transform it to a necklace with a spiral, as my friend Orly El-Al did ;), C - connect only the bronze loops to a new bracelet, D - transform it to a slave bracelet). E - make something else....
