Saint Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and the dragonfly has lessons to teach us about love: Live in the moment. See clearly what’s important — what really matters most. Be able to change directions to serve the truest needs of both those you love and yourself in order to have happy, fulfilled, and complete lives.
The dragonfly is an unusual but powerful symbol of love, and Christina Orlikowsky‘s Dragonfly Brooch and Pendant — a project design from Kristal Wick‘s soon-to-be-released book Foxy Epoxy: 44 Great Epoxy Clay Projects with Serious Bling — is the perfect project to make for a loved one, whether a partner, friend, child, or parent.
Kristal herself designed many of the projects in Foxy Epoxy, and all rest were created by an all-star lineup of jewelry crafters who have incredible fun working with epoxy clay.
The designers include Christina Orlikowski, Katie Hacker, June Beach, Stephanie Dixon, Jean Campbell, Candie Cooper, Margot Potter, Andrew Thornton, Debbi Simon, Brenda Schweder, Katerina Ilieva, and Debra Saucier!
You can preorder the book on Amazon or BN.com. And please be sure to join Lark Jewelry & Beading on Facebook for pics of great jewelry, notifications about free projects and giveaways, and community news.
And, in case you’re having trouble reading that quote about the book on the thumbnail front cover, it’s from Marcia DeCoster: “Kristal has put together a definitive sourcebook for using epoxy clay with an extensive and diverse collection of projects and a talented group of designers.”
It receives similar praise on the back cover:
From Mark Montano: “This is a gem of a book! If you’re in need of inspiration and ideas for your epoxy clay creations, look no more. Foxy Epoxy features work by today’s top designers and is filled from cover to cover with ideas that will keep you creating until all hours. I promise!”
From Sherry Serafini: “I ADORE this book! I couldn’t put it down! Cover to cover I loved the projects, and the inspiration popped off the pages. I applaud Kristal and all the fabulous designers for taking this medium and making it classy, funky, and so much fun.”
We hope you’ll love Foxy Epoxy, too!
