One World One Heart 2011

EDIT: 2.21.11 - WINNERS:
Comment No. 158, Cat & Cricket won the vintage text pendant
Comment No. 26, Jacque4u2c won the Asian charm
Comment No. 86, Antonella won the lampwork heart pendant
Comment No. 8, Donna won the green fractal swirl bead
Comment No. 143, Stephanie won the peony Scrabble tile

To everyone: Thank you so much for participating, and for leaving such fantastic comments. I really REALLY appreciate them all - you've ALL given me greater confidence in my work and designs. I know that when I'm feeling stuck and bummed out, I will return to these wonderful comments again and again, so THANK YOU!!!

Lisa's got another project cooked up for 2012, which I WILL be participating in (barring disaster, LOL). Here are the details.

EDIT: 2.17.11: THANK YOU to everyone who has visited my blog and left a comment! You are the BEST!!! This OWOH thing has been a blast - I've really enjoyed cruising the Net for fun new blogs to stalk follow, and I'll be checking the OWOH list to find all of the blogs I didn't get a chance to visit during OWOH. Huge thanks and a giant pitcher of virtual margaritas to Lisa Swifka for putting this event together AND for planning something new for 2012 - count me in for sure!!!

SO WHO WON??? I just arrived home from the Hungry for the Arts show - had a great time, and I think/hope/pray they raised a few bucks for the GRUB program (An Olympia grassroots non-profit organization dedicated to nourishing a strong community by empowering people and growing good food.) - went to Random Number Generator Thingie ( and got five I have to figure out which posts those numbers correlate with, since Blogger doesn't have a comment numbering system (that I can figure out at this point). The numbers generated are 158, 26, 86, 8, and 143 - tomorrow morning, when I have more sleep and caffeine in my body, I will figure out whose comments these numbers go with, and will contact the lucky winners tomorrow.

EDIT: 2.4.11 - This OWOH thing is turning out to be so much fun that I've decided to give away a total of FIVE door prizes, instead of just one! Scroll to the bottom to see the additional prizes.

Greetings and welcome to my blog! I am Christine Hansen, and I'm a hot glass and mixed media artist. My work is centered around my torch-worked glass beads and mixed media art charms, which I combine in my mixed media art jewelry. I'm also a writer - my first book is Making Mixed Media Art Charms & Jewelry, which I co-wrote with my dear friend Peg Krzyzewski.

I live in Washington state, on the south end of Puget Sound, and I share my home with my sweet husband Jerry, our two kids Emily & Archer, and our small pack of retired racing greyhounds, Ivy, Sam, & Rufus.

Color and texture define my work, a bright and cheerful counterpoint to the dreary skies of winter in the Pacific Northwest. I delight in combining unusual elements for unexpected results, and am constantly dreaming up new ways to play with color and form.
As part of the One World One Heart blog-hop, I am offering one of my mixed media art charm pendants as a door prize, open to all active bloggers, worldwide. EDIT: I'm offering a total of FIVE door prizes. All you need to do is leave a comment responding to this post - do be sure to include your blog addy so I can check out YOUR blog, and contact you, should you be one of the five lucky winners. The winners will be selected on February 17, 2011.
This mixed media art charm pendant features vintage French text collaged onto a long narrow wooden bicone bead, and coated with a thick layer of two-part resin. I then wrapped the bead with annealed black steel wire (my new FAVORITE wire!) and added one of my small lampwork beads as a dangle. The completed art charm pendant measures just about 2-1/4" long.

EDIT: Here are pics of the additional four door prizes - enjoy, don't forget to post your comment, and good luck!

One of my newest mixed media art charms.

One of my lampwork lacy heart pendants.

One of my Fractal Swirl beads in my MOST FAVORITEST COLOR EVER, Vetrofond's ODD (e.g. rare, will probably never be on this planet again) Lemongrass Green.
One of my Scrabble tile art charms - this one has one of my photos on the front, and a swirl (no letter) on the back, both sides under two-part resin.

What nice beads and pendants you have made for OWOH- I love the lemongrass colored one especially. Thanks for the opportunity to win one of your gifts.
There are so many terrific places to visit and not enough time to visit them all it seems. It has been great fun- hope you had a chance to visit others too.
Regards from Western Canada,

so tired last night I didn't get a chance to log on and view your cool blog. Grub was fun and the best part was meeting a fellow artist on the path.
