Welcome to the Artist behind 1337 Art.

Sometimes it’s hard to find words for a blog when said blog is being introduced as a sole website. You can’t get too personal because then a new visitor will be confused on what you are trying to sell when they visit your “website” and see posts about recipes and recently read books. And you can’t get to know the person behind the small business when they express themselves professionally…

And that is why I changed my website so my blog and it’s content are no longer the center of attention. My website is now my Artfire shop, which also has an integrated blog where I can transfer these posts to there. Both things are separate, and personal vs. business are now on friendly terms.

I was confused and overwhelmed with the thought of posting a new entry to my blog, because the constant battle between Personal and Business was something I couldn’t choose sides on…which explains all of the non-frequent entries.

Problem solved. Case closed. Welcome to the Artist behind 1337 Art. It’s nice to meet you.

Mother's Day and Something (or two) I made.

Instead of buying something this year I decided to make Mom #1 and Mom #2 (in law) a piece of jewelry in honor of Mother's Day.

For Mom #1 I have not yet defined her style. She likes simple things, and I came up with this eagle necklace in about 10 minutes while looking at my supplies going, "huh."

It is made with Eagle Eye Jasper, Czech Glass, Gunmetal, and Japanese Glass Seed Beads. The eagle pendant is made from diamond cut pewter for a beautiful detailed look.

For Mom #2 she likes to dress up and go out from time to time so I decided to make her a double strand bracelet.

It is made with Sterling Silver, Rhodium, Pewter, and Swarovski Crystals and Pearls.

A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie. ~ Tenneva Jordan
