Hello Spring! What should I wear today?

This is one of my newest pendants and I am really in love. The medium is a lot of fun to work with for a couple of reasons. First, I have always been drawn to strong graphic art. Although my paintings are not generally like this, I really like it, especially for something like jewelry. The glass paint actually makes it difficult to paint any other way than in a strong graphic voice. Second, I love the discovery that comes from each new piece of plate. The shapes that are made randomly from the plate breaking add a sense of mystery and predestined fate for each piece, giving each piece a real personality all it's own. As these pieces get sold, I anticipate selling new ones in the same design, but with the understanding that the shape may vary. I hope that will make the pendants a discovery for my clients as well! To view this pendant and others, go here for my Etsy shop, or here for my Andie Freeman studio shop. To learn more about me and my process, visit here.

Don't you want a fresh cup of website?

I hope you had a beautiful Easter! Easter Sunday was the last day of our spring break and was a fantastic way to end our vacation. We started with a trip to Washington D.C. and ended with a trip to Hilton Head, South Carolina, so a lot was stuffed into a week. Even with all of that traveling, we generally took it easy. Lots of time was spent wandering the beach and observing nature. 

Before going on vacation I started a new project that I am passionate about. I redesigned my site. I know, you are thinking, that doesn't sound like fun. Well, it is tedious, and it still has many holes that need to be filled, but I am passionate about it because it will make my artwork more accessible for different people and it allows me a new way to tell my story to more people. 

I would really appreciate it if you would visit my site and let me know in my comments section on my blog what you think. I would really, really appreciate it if you would share my site with someone you know that you think would enjoy it. My new site will be a place where you can get all of my information at one address...very easy to understand address.... it's www.andiefreeman.com. I will keep you in the loop as it develops!

Hope you are having a beautiful April so far! We are busy here in North Carolina having fun on spring break. This pendant is one of my favorites because it is of one of my favorite places, Harbour Town and Hilton Head, SC. It is also on sale for only 2 MORE DAYS! This is in honor of the Heritage Golf Tournament that is coming up in a couple of weeks. To see this pendant in my shop, go to This Little Pigment. I hope you take some time to enjoy this beautiful spring weather wherever you are and as always, I would love to hear from you!
