Sometimes Christmas comes twice a year.

I received a comment/query tonight on one of my Design a Day posts from a fellow jewelry designer in Shanghai, China.

(In passing, she mentioned that my Design a Day project inspired her to create her own Design a Day jewelry design blog project .)

How cool is that!

You can take a look at her designs here
(and cheer us both on!)

    hi Joana,
    Thank you so much for answering my query in such detail – really helpful! I just got home from travelling, and tried your method tonight. It works quite well for me, but more practise is needed. 🙂
    It’s very encouraging to find someone with the same passion working hard towards their goal, and feel you’re not alone! Thank you, Joana!

    • Hi Christina,

      Quite a few of my friends who read my blog commented to me about your beautiful designs, and how talented they think you are. Keep up the great work!

      I’m glad that the tips I sent you for colored pencil rendering were helpful. I really enjoyed seeing your work and will check into your blog often. I, too, find encouragement knowing that you are out there and that we are following a very similar passion!

      Keep me posted and all best luck to you, too!
