Edward Kenney Photgrapher Oahu Waikiki Hawaii

Living as a child in the Canadian Wilderness was a great joy. My photography  has been  50 years in the making.   Enduring intense cold weather I patiently became the catalyst of my own creativity and the reward was viewing the magic of  freezing water as it produced  incredible  Ice Art.  My photos are meant to capture these unique ice formations and the conditions had to be perfect in order to shoot  quality photographs. I pushed my Body and Spirit to the limit so that I could bring these  Foto Gems  home.   Now,  you can enjoy  Nature's incredible artwork  by viewing  the natural  Transition of   WATER to ICE .  So, go ahead...take this opportunity  to look at  these rare photos and experience the natural formation of beautiful Ice Crystals.

Hawaii Oahu Honolulu Waikiki Artists SPECIAL FEATURE

Hawaii Oahu Honolulu Waikiki Artists SPECIAL FEATURE

Artists and Craftspeople ~ Hawaii ~ Oahu ~ Honolulu ~ Waikiki and surrounding areas: There is a great community of artists and craftspeople in Hawaii. I visited as many as I could fit into my busy schedule between snorkeling, bodyboarding and sipping Mai Tais at "Dukes Beach Bar". There is a relaxed and warm hearted spirit with the people of Hawaii, and this even resonates into the hearts and soul of many tourists. A friendly, welcoming place. The arts are very extensive and of varied genres. I found carvers, painters, potters, musicians, photographers, jewellers and more. I will show a small selection here and hopefully grow artists presence on artancraftconnection in the coming weeks and month, so visit here again. Tabora GalleryWaikiki The Tabora Gallery is situated in the main hotel and tourist district of Waikiki Beach, in the Outrigger Hotel Complex. About Tabora Art: Tabora's art strikes a cord deep within, sending us to a mystical place where our imagination is free to wander...

The Beading Gems Journal – Tutorials!

The Beading Gems Journal – Tutorials!

Hello! And welcome to my journal. I call myself the Beading Gem because of my given name Pearl (really!) and because I love beading and jewelry. So much so in early 2005, I started my own small business offering a Design Your Own Jewelry service to local budding enthusiasts initially in Halifax and surrounds, Nova Scotia, Canada. As we have way too much fun designing jewelry at BG home parties and workshops, I found I had little time to tell the fascinating stories behind the beads and gemstones we use and about jewelry too. So it was time for another "facet" of the Beading Gem. The Beading Gem's Journal is the place for all those stories I never get to tell, melding all my passions - writing, reading,crafts,  history and science (I was then a scientist by day) into this blog. Check back often for "nuggets" of information. Better still, subscribe and don't miss a post! It's free. Go to the site click here Need beads? Visit the "beading...
