It's funny the first thing people say when they see the beads Cindy works with is, "Oh man, how can you see?" Cindy has been showing at Crafty Chicks since the beginning, 11 years ago. Her designs have evolved. Right now, she is into the old school tattoo look. It is a lot of fun to see her ideas come to life. When you love what you do it shows!

Fun, Funky & Chunky Jewelry
by Linda Maloney

Linda tries to bring a bit of nostalgia and whimsy into her designs. She likes to recycle by using as many re-found objects, beads and components in her jewelry as possible. Linda loves the tactile feel of the Mah Jong tiles and wonders how many games have been played with them, oh, wonders what stories they could tell! She is now using old Gumball machine charms, Monopoly and other game pieces in her game pieces long with Bakelite poker chips to make fun necklaces! The whimsical trees are all made in the manner of the glittery trees in the 1950's. These beautiful trees could find a place in your home. You will want to come early to see Linda, a new chick this year, and her wonderful designs.
