Connections is the subject of this weeks focusing on life. I found it very appropriate because I received Cindy Wimmer's new book this week. It is a wonderful book filled with wire links which are connections. I can hardly wait to try making several of the links in the book. I am sure these links will improve the quality of my jewelry. I love Cindy's style. I want to thank Sally of http://thestudiosublime.com/ for all the connections I have made this year with all of you. One of the reasons I started my blog was to connect with other beaders. Focusing on life has helped me do just that. Please take the time to check out what the other participants found for connections.

  9. Thanx Cynthia. It is a great book. I can see Cindy's influence in it besides the awesome links she teaches. It has a quiet elegance like Cindy herself. Great step by step photos and interesting text. I am sure it will be a go to reference for me.

  10. Love it Becky! I had the same thought, as similarly I have just recieved my copy from Cindy (aren't you jealous of her penmanship - I sure am!) Anyway, you are so right to thank Sally as well for all these great connections, kicking myself for not hitting on that too

  17. Becky! I'm quite honored that you chose my book as your photo prompt for this week's challenge. Unfortunately I did not participate in this round - was busy with my son's big 5th birthday. :-) I'm happy to hear that you like the book so far and that it might provide some inspiration. I agree with the comments on this post - the connections we have all made through this Focus on Life challenge have been wonderful. I am thankful for you, Sally, and all of our friends in the jewelry community! :-)
