Amanda and I both belong to an Etsy group, the "BeadHive" and found we have many things in common. Not only do we share the love of jewelry design and beads (massive amounts of beads too!) but we share a deep commitment to our college teams - she's a LSU girl and it's UGA for me! Though our teams are rivals a few times a year, it's still fun to cheer for the other!! How do you like her Georgia Bulldog set she made for me!!! :)
I also want to mention that Amanda chose to have me in her artist feature this week!!! Wow!!! I am honored!!!! Her glowing blog piece was so kind and sweet - THANK YOU AMANDA!!! Let me pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming. :)
So if you have the chance... check out Amanda's blog and most importantly go visit her shop on Etsy - you'll be glad you did, her work is amazing!!!
