Who doesn’t get happy just by looking at the whimsical, brightly colored enameled charms made by Cathleen Zaring? I certainly do. To be honest, I have amassed quite a collection of her beautiful art beads of which I can’t seem to part (‘my precious…). I will, in due time, I promise I will. For now, we all get to know the artist and woman behind these beauties a bit more, as she is this months’ guest.

My first guest of this year is the very talented US bead and jewelry artist Kristi Bowman. She not only creates gorgeous jewelry, but beautiful copper beads and components as well.
I know her beads (yep, I have a few) and jewelry but I don’t know a lot about the person behind the artist. So I hope you are as exited as I am that she agreed in this interview.
