BESTeam Feature: Shiny Things

All of us have, I think, a little bit of the crow in us, the greedy raven.  A little part that is attracted to shiny things, sparkling in the light.  We want to reach out, touch, take them home and hide the precious things away in our nests.  My inner crow has come out in full force today.  Hard to resist all of these beautiful shiny things from Redemption Art, Absolutely Kismet and GMaEllen Crochet Gifts.

"For as long as I can remember, I loved to peruse through vintage shops, second hand stores and garage sales. My mother would take me to Chinatown in Downtown Honolulu and as she looked for fresh vegetables, herbs, spices and seafood for her delicious gourmet meals, I just couldn't wait to be "cut loose" to wonder through the mazes and sometimes messes of the old Hawaii vintage shops.

"One of the things I love most about making jewelry is the absolute individualism. For each gift that I've created for a family member or friend, I've kept the person's favorite colors and personality and potential use of the item in mind and tried to see the person wearing or using what I've made."

"I love being crafty and creative, keeping busy outside of work. I really enjoy creating things that are not only nice looking, but are functional.  What inspires me creatively? Research mostly. That and my huge collection (over 35 yrs worth) of patterns, pattern books and magazines; yarn, thread and any other thing I can wrap around my hook!

  11. On the part of rich countries there is excessive zeal for protecting knowledge through an unduly rigid assertion of the right to intellectual property, especially in the field of health care. At the same time, in some poor countries, cultural models and social norms of behaviour persist which hinder the process of development."Brustvergr??erung Preis
