Premio Arte Y Pico Award - Part I

I am honored. I have been given the ARTE Y PICO Award. Not one, but two of them, by two wonderful jewelry designers. Thank you very much! It feels so good!

The first award was given to me by Betina Guelman, who is a very talented beader I know from our Israeli beading internet commune and her work is always special. Thank you, Betina!

So, I am now passing the award to another 5 blogs:
1. Triz, of Triz designs from Israel, who is always surprising me with her very beautiful beadwork designs. Her recent innovation is a bag she made, with an embroidered piece on it- a stunning piece of work!. Go check her blog to see her interesting work in progress.
2. Marylou's Art Ad(ventures) from the USA, who makes beautiful bead woven jewelry, but also designs great graphic items.
3. Nina from Germany, the Beadexplorer – I discovered her bilingual blog recently and found a new interesting way to use beads. Go see what it is!
4.Ixela from Italy is making beautiful jewelry. She also regularly posts the "An Artist a Day Keeps the Doctor Away" post – a feature of nice and inspiring finds that she kindly share with her readers.
5. Finally, Ardjan of Ardjan's Eye from Israel, who is the very talented photographer of mine. Except for my jewelry, Ardjan loves to photograph the nature that surrounds him and any other interesting sights that he captures in his eyes, and shares his beautiful photos on his blog. Thank you Ardjan!
The rules for passing the award on are (you can copy&paste):
1) You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for creativity, design, interesting material, and also contributes to the blogging community, no matter of language.
2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3) Each award-winning has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the ward itself.
4) Award-winning and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y pico"blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.
5) Show these rules.
