Lori Anderson Designs Giveaway {CLOSED}

CONGRATS, the winner is windycindy(She has been notified.)


Since I have been blogging I have had the pleasure to "meet" many wonderfully creative people. One of those people is Lori. Her creations are beautiful and she is a very talented jewelry designer. Her creations have even been published in variety of magazines & a book!
Here is a little about the artist behind these beautiful creations...

1. Tell us a little about yourself…
I joined the Air Force out of high school (was a Korean Linguist, stationed mostly in Korea), then got a degree from the University of Virginia in preparation for medical school. Took a year off to get the money together for med school and got swept up in the dot.com frenzy and started working in that. Then I met my husband, got married, got pregnant, and got introduced to beads while on bed rest. The rest, as they say, is history!

2. How long have you been doing this?
Six years.

3. Who/What inspires you?
Color. And the beads themselves. I can look at beads and immediately know what they should be. If they don’t “speak” to me, I rarely buy them.

4. What's your favorite piece?
That changes from day to day, but I really only wear four or five of my own creations, can you believe it? One is made with beads from a dear friend who no longer makes beads, and one is made with beads that are funky beyond all reason. I’d never, ever part with those.

5. What advice do you have for a beginner?
Never think you can’t do this.

6. Where can we find you?
Web site: www.lorianderson.net
Blog: www.prettythingsblog.com
2nd Blog: www.AnArtistsYearOff.com – this one will only last for a year, and it’s about my drastic cut-back in shows this year, and exploring new media and new ways of thinking about what I’m doing.

OK, I love the Tweet Earrings (even though they're sold out. Bummer.) But there are so many beautiful things.
