finished glass jewelry from the fabulous P.J. Sweeney!!

Kim Joy is one of the most creative and fun artists i know. Together we've spent many hours brainstorming new kit or class ideas. Combine an incredible mind and artistic curiosity, there's a force to be reconed with!

Wolfe Run Studio..A extraordinary artist, Bill Harrah. Oscelyn Brooks is truly talented. Her work in polymer clay consists of wonderful and whimsical collectibles. I call her style Disney meets Cabbage Patch and makes a slight turn. Very original and a warm and funny woman as well!

Art Pierson Photography.. Virtually all the photo images on the PJewelry site were taken by Art. Check out his site to see more of the range of his beautiful work.

Dick Blick Art VINTAGE MATERIALS has a nice blend of fine arts materials and neat stuff you can do crafty things with. From structural acrylic paint to nifty finishes and colors that are hard to find.

Jo-Anne's locally and on-line is a great place to find the more unusual craft items. Their fabric and notions are also a good buy. I found their "computer fabric" stuff kind of neat, but try the Sulky metallic thread with your bead or paper project! Very funky, very unusual. Looks great!

This is a wonderful site available free for Galleries and Shops.

Surplus funk, a flea market on line, and a great source for some of coolest vials, containers, materials, lenses, motors, gears, electronic stuff and whatnots you'll ever see. Some great projects started here. A really neat site with some of the most beautiful handcrafted work! Check out the fun and functional metal section! I'm a real fan of typography and its amazing how different a message you can give with different fonts. This site also highlights type designers as artists. Very cool.
