Baskerville Designs Totemic Collection

As many of you know, Janet Baskerville and I are best friends... a/k/a ... 'The Biffs'. In fact we call each other 'Biff' most times. Because we spend so much time together working in the studio, doing workshops and treasure hunting, I get to see many of her jewelry pieces in progress. I'm always astounded at her thought process and the talent and ability to make her ideas come to fruition. Every piece she creates is a piece of who she is and she puts her heart into every single creation. When we do shows together it's wonderful to see people's reaction to her work.. their appreciation not only of the beauty but also the workmanship.

On that note I would like to encourage you to go see her latest "Totemic Collection" as part of Baskerville Designs. It's very earthy/tribal and so so Janet in every way. Perhaps you can drop her a note on her blog to say hello and let her know what you think of her latest work.

There aren't many of us that have made a connection both in heart and in art but Janet and I have. We both feel so lucky to have one another to create with.

In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson: "It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them."

lol... I was getting too serious!

Ohhh.. and did I mention that I probably have the largest Baskerville Collection??? I want to show you what Janet gave me last week. We are both proponents of giving gifts just because and she gave me this piece... just because. It's called 'Time Be My Friend'.

Thank you Biff!  



Have a great week!

Best...
