One World One Heart

A warm welcome to my blog and the fabulous fifths and final ONE WORLD ONE HEART event!!!
My name is Janna, I am from Bremen, Germany, and I love to create. Everything you can imagine, but especially jewelry.
I am looking forward to visit as many blogs of participating bloggers as possible - and the blogs of anyone who will leave a comment here, of course! It would be great to find kindred spirits and interesting people all around the world! That's what this event is all about.

As a little giveaway, I have created a pair of (pretty large!) earrings made of copper, light blue Indonesian glass beads, red freshwater pearls, recycled sari ribbons, brass wire and solid sterling silver wire.

To get entered, all you have to do is:
Leave a comment on this post!
That's it.
The giveaway is open to all active bloggers worldwide!

(If you don't have a blog, please leave a comment, too! There will be an extra drawing just for you - I have prepared a little surprise...!)

Blogger or not: Please make sure to leave your email address with your comment so I can reach you after the drawing!

The drawing will be on February 17th.

Have fun, anyone... and a HUGE thank you, Lisa!

Bead Soup Party

Bead Soup Party has begun and I couldn't be happier with the partner Lori chose for me: Nicki!
Please visit her blog:
I love the necklace Nicki made for the Colour Blog Hop and her interpretation of Klimt's Tree of Life.
Nicki is from Germany, like me, and it is always such a pleasure to meet creative people from "around the corner" - especially those who make jewelry that is quite similar to mine! There are so few!
Can't wait to receive my beads from her and get started!

Alive again

Because of this bad flu I had, it has been quiet here for a while.
In my whole adult live I haven't felt so ill.
Today I am feeling much better, so I managed to put some earrings together.

More beads and beadcaps

I have a bad cold and don't feel too good, but couldn't wait to enamel some more beads and beadcaps.

Here is the necklace I have made with my new babies. I'll keep it for myself.
The tiny ceramic heart is from the incredibly talented Mary Harding. Go visit her blog:
Now I'm off to make more of these little beauties...!

1)My word for 2011 is EMBRACE.
Embrace life, the earth, people I love and people I don't like, creativity, pain, joy, love, my sorrows, you, nature, sadness, myself, memories (good and bad), my fears, whatever may come in the future...
...embrace...and let go.

2)Today I tried to create a necklace for a dear customer. She was one of my first customers and has got fourteen of my necklaces and even more pairs of my earrings by now (WOW!). Mostly she buys something she has seen in my shop or elsewhere, but sometimes she asks me to just make something for her.
That is such an honour and privilege, of course, but to be honest, I always have a hard time doing it. Though I know her likes and dislikes on the whole, it's so hard to figure out what she would like to have in this special case.
Today I put a gazillion things together and took them apart, again. Somewhere down the road I thought I needed some eggs, so I made some out of polymer clay. The little bird on our christmas tree is now wearing one of them around its neck. Birdy looks so happy with it - I won't take it from him, again.
