Marika got so inspired by Cheryl's PIPA pieces, without holding on she went ahead and tried it out, here's the outcome! This is her first attempt - imagine that! And she actually integrated it with her previously learned technique! Which made this PIPA pendant so unique (another unique, yeah)!
Marika is a very hardworking jewelry artist that always keep practicing and trying to improve, I took notice about Marika when she bought my LayerCoiled Crystal Pearl Earrings Tutorial & PIPA Earrings Tutorial, then I saw Pearl had a very detailed write up about her - Making Jump rings by Hand or Why Artisan Jewelry Costs More, that's how I get to know her. We only started to talk when she bought Skylark Bracelet Tutorial, I thought I sent to a wrong person because her contact picture shown in GMail simply not the Marika I knew - I recognizes Marika's face by looking at the profile picture shown in her blog, but the contact pictures shown in GMail is the another familiar face I saw in metalchaser.com! After some verification then we now know they are the same Marika! LOL!
OT: Marika is very hardworking on creating (so far, averagely she create at least one piece of jewelry a day!) and keen to find ways to improve, I admire her spirit and her passion, so please don't stop! :)
