Connections - Textured Asian-Inspired Keepsake Box
by Marcia Palmer
Voting has begun for the PCAGOE June Challenge, "Think outside the Box." For this challenge, all the entrants started out with the same sized, rectangular aluminum tin, which measureS 2.5" wide by 2" tall. As with every month, I take the time to highlight a few on the entrants and today's beautiful box was brought to you by Marcia Palmer! Marcia is a long time member of PCAGOE, having joined in 2007 at the guild's inception. Her home is in Georgia where she makes the most wonderful earthy and ethnic pieces!  Below is a mosaic of her work that will be included in the Member Gallery of the New PCAGOE website that will be launching soon!  Marcia's work encompasses the mystic and the primitive, with wonderful earthtones and beautiful color accents that blend to give the pieces warmth and charm.  I've admired her jewelry for some time, but in putting together the Member Gallery, I found her dolls, too!  So wonderfully creative and inspiring!  You can find Marcia's shop HERE or follow her on her blog at http://www.marciapalmer.blogspot.com or on her Facebook Fan Page.
