You know how much I like to hunt for inspiring designers to feature. To my delight,  Florida based Valorie Clifton of VCArtisanOriginals turned out not only to be an inspiring designer but she has been reading my blog for years. Score!

Valorie is one of those designers who is really accomplished in more than one jewelry making technique.

I first stumbled upon her metal work tutorials- there are five, all beautifully rendered in copper.  The one below has a concrete center.  My favorite, though as to be the string art inspired design above.

Valorie used to teach bead work but her workload does not currently permit her to continue.  She does have a large collection of beadwork - and one solitary chain mail pendant tutorial - available in her store.  The beadwork tutorials are well organized by skill level. She has many in the beginner side so newbies should head on over!

Valorie, here is hoping that you will find not just more time in the future but also your bead mojo which you say is missing in action!
