January Journal Completed

Robin - Thank you so much for finding the error for me. I had corrected it before posting, or so I thought. Anyway, here's a new entry about my January Journal entry, which I did finish in January, even though it's being posted in February.

The Chinese New Year was the perfect theme for my January Journal, as I love all things Asian. I create Chinese brush paintings, mainly of flowers, and would like to learn Calligraphy. A good friend of mine, Angela Chang, painted the piece I used as my cabochon for this piece. It's the Chinese symbol LU, for prosperity for the new year. The colors I used are explained in the description of the piece shown on my web site. To access my site, click here on January Bead Journal.

I have brooches I've made which also include Angela's calligraphy. You can see them at Calligraphy Jewelry.

Once on my site, click on the photo of the piece about which you would like to read. You'll get a larger picture and the description of each. In order to see the rest of my jewelry, click at the top on Gallery, which will take you back to the main page showing all the main albums, and then click on Handcrafted Beaded Jewelry.

I'm not sure how to get rid of my previous January blog, but I'll experiment and see what happens. Otherwise, you'll have two blog entries to read but only one will connect to my site. Hope you enjoy the visit.

Yay!!! Thank you Susan!!! Your calligraphy pin is very beautiful, as are all of them. It's great to see them all together, and the larger, click versions with the text are stunning! Great photos too! Thanks again, Robin A.
