Never Forget 9/11

I want everyone to take a moment today and stop what they are doing.  To remember all the men and woman who have fought for our country.  For everyone and everything that we lost that day.



Our Fallen Soldiers


As hard as life is right now for most of us, its harder for someone else today.
Appreciate your family and loved ones, as someone is missing theres today. 
While you are home warm and safe,   someone else is fighting for our rights to keep this country safe.









I cant believe it has been 10 years.  It seems like yesterday.
I remember everything from that day.  I was at work.  Where were you?



Thank you everyone for taking the time to read my blog.  Please feel free to comment.  God bless!


Never Forget!

Each pendant is made from resin clay. All of my hand painted pendant are carefully crafted and hand painted by me.

Painting has always been one of my loves. I have been painting for many years. Painting countless mural, and crafts for all to enjoy,  but jewelry is my passion.  It's what I see myself doing for years to come. I am so happy to be able to incorporate my painting in to my jewelry,  and of course share it all with you. 

Each piece is a (OOAK) one of a kind.  When my customers purchase these works of art, not only are they receiving an OOAK piece, but its something they can enjoy for many years to come.  Maybe even passing there jewelry collection on to there loved ones,  for them to enjoy.  Knowing that my painting will continue to live on long after.

I decided before posting my hand painted jewelry on Etsy  I would post them here first,  to share with my readers. All comments welcome and i hope you enjoy.

    About WiredUPp by BlueyekittanDesigns

    Hello all-

    I told you I would be back!... 

    I also said I would tell you about myself.  So here is a little story about my life and who I am.  Hope you enjoy!

    I started selling  jewelry on Etsy in 2010.  I am a Jewelry Designer and I love what I do. 

    I was born and raised in a small town in New Jersey.  I loved growing up in NJ.  The beaches the people, Oh! and the food!  I miss my hometown.  I moved to South Carolina 4years ago.  It is a very beautiful state, but I will always be a Jersey Girl.



    
    I have been an artist all my life. I started drawing when I was 3 years old.  My  mom said I would sit for hours and just color and draw. haahaa!   I joined my first art class when i was 13. I learned so much about sculpting and painting. This began my window to the art world.




    I also ventured in to singing at this time in my life, from 13-16 years old,  I sang Opera.  I loved being on stage especially at this age..hehee! I felt like a little movie star.  I sang in convention hall in Asbury Park NJ. It was just so exciting and fun.  My Italian on the other hand?..Oh my?..lol..I was not good at it..lol..I could sing, but another language, nope!..lol. So I went back to doing my paintings and drawings, I figured it was safe here..ha! 



    At 17 I was offered a job with Florie Roberts, I drew the animations,  for direction on how to put on eyelashes. So now not only did I have my first real job, but I could put fake eyelashes on now to! yay!..The things we learn when we are young.

     

    After all of that in my younger years, I moved on to getting married having children.  I had bigger responsibilities too take on now.  I left my art and music behind.  So I thought!  

    At 25 I divorced and I started signing again. This time I started singing Country/Pop,  It helped me through a tough time in my life. Music heals! Its true!   I made a Country demo CD and worked with that until my late 20's early 30's.  Traveling to NY and NJ. This was a great time in my life.  I met a lot of interesting people and friends.  I also met my new husband and we were married in 2006.  We have a beautiful little boy together, hes 3 years old.

                                         
    But!!  I always found myself coming back to my art. I loved painting.  I loved how it took me away. Everything I felt I could put in to that one painting.  It was a great creative feeling.  I have so much inspiration around me.

    I still sing, but now its to my children..hehe!  I paint when i can.  Flyer's, logos, and graphic design, draw, photography and jewelry.  I love it all, but jewelry is my passion.   I was always interested in making jewelry, I played around with making some piece throughout the years.  I didn't really settle in to jewelry making until after 2006.    Now I am a Jewelry Designer.  This is what i want to do.  With all my experience in art and with all my inspiration around me, family, awesome friends who have been there from the beginning and have not left my side.  A supportive husband, who supports me through it all.  Family who has pushed me to be who I am today.   I wouldn't change not a single thing.  It's been a fun road.  With so much more to travel.



    Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about me.  I hope you enjoyed it as much as I had fun writing it.  If you would like to see any of my work its on www.blueyekittan29.etsy.com  take a look around, leave some comments, let me know what you think. I’m up for ideas to if you have any.  I love to try new techniques in jewelry, I'm always learning  =)   Also look for me in this August 2011 issue of Bead Trends Magazine.



    Thanks again for stopping by <3
