Featured Artist of the Week: Beadlady5

Margo, also known as Beadlady5 is a true artist. She is an artist because she designs and makes one of a kind jewelry pieces, but also because she manages a very large guild and at least 4 online shops.
She has a unique style and sense of taste that I and many others can recognize any where on the web. Her eye for color, detail and sense of passion for what she does is visible in every piece she creates.

Not only does she help the guild members with promoting the group, she also helps and listens to us individually. I have to admit that when I first started on artfire I was lost, confused and didn't know what to think or do half the time. She has guided me in selling online but also guided me, as a new jewelry designer. I bet at times her patience was wearing thin with me but she never showed frustration or anger. She showed nothing but passion for wanting to teach and guide me through the process.
I know this blog post doesn't do Beadlady5 justice but I hope at least it helps many understand the passion and care she has for not just her jewelry but helping artists as well.
That's all for now, libertydoll.
