One World One Heart 2011
My name is Holly Louen and I live in Clovis, California, smack in the middle of the state.
Welcome to Tuscan Road Designs! I am a handmade Artisan jewelry designer. It all began with a trip to Murano, Italy. After touring the glass and bead factories on this island, I was hooked. Upon returning home, I promptly signed up for a Lampwork class at the local glass store to learn how to make my own beautiful beads. I then taught my teenage son how to do it, and that became a great bonding time for us, thus the beginning of Tuscan Road Designs. My inspirations come from nature, architecture, Old World icons…..and especially the world around me as I have seen it from numerous travels. And now, I look forward to this new, exciting journey called One World One Heart.
My door prize is a feel-good, romantic charm necklace with a copper word plate with "Kisses" etched on it. Hanging with it is a brass locket and a tiny dusty rose colored paper rose. Attached a little ways up the antiqued copper chain is a Rhodonite gemstone bead. It fastens at the back with a lobster clasp and the length of the chain is 24". The pendant is 1 1/2".
Please leave a comment so you can be entered into this drawing, which will take place on February 17th.
In the meantime, thank you so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your journey!
