    Suspense Radio One on One November 15th, 2015

    in Books

    Michael Burge: "Bryant's Gap": 

    In 1947 postwar Chicago, mob related violence is commonplace. Nothing stands in the way of the “Outfit” when it comes to making money; a body here or there, who really cares as long as everyone’s pockets are lined, but when a man is found dead in a small Illinois town—people take notice. Bargetown’s Chief of Police Bert Thatcher looks to a seasoned and astute railroad detective, Grady Colston, for help in solving the case. Fate has brought them together, but they soon realize just how much they have in common. A tight bond develops between the two men as they strive to uncover the identity of the man found dead on the railroad tracks—his right arm severed. As the investigation unfolds, surprising details of the man’s past come to light, and the circumstances of his death pose a major dilemma for Grady and Bert.

    Simon Toyne "The Searcher": 

    The author of the acclaimed Sanctus trilogy conjures an eerie epic of good and evil, retribution and redemption—the first novel in the mesmerizing Solomon Creed series in which a man with no memory of his past must save a lost soul in a small Arizona town.

    On a hilltop in the town of Redemption, Arizona, the townspeople gather at an old cemetery for the first time in decades to bury a local man. The somber occasion is suddenly disrupted by a thunderous explosion in the distant desert. A plane has crashed, and it’s pouring a pillar of black smoke into the air.

    As Sheriff Garth Morgan speeds toward the crash, he nearly hits a tall, pale man running down the road, with no shoes on his feet and no memory of who he is or how he got there. The only clues to his identity are a label in his handmade suit jacket and a book that’s been inscribed to him: both giving the name Solomon Creed.

    MXMGBTR - 10/29 "True Life Experiences," Essential & Exotic Oils #LotusButter

    in Motivation

    A show dedicated to "True Life Experiences." 

    Get ready to be informed & inspired as Dwan Carter (LotusButter), & MXMGBTR Host Jazz' speaks on Essential & Exotic Body Oils - LIVE 10/29/2015 on BlogTalk Radio!

    "In 2013, Dwan Carter decided to try her hand at creating her own product that way she would always know what is in it, what was going on her skin and where the ingredients came from, truly organic. With less than five readable ingredients her clients know what is going on their skin as well giving them a piece of mind.

    Now Dwan is the CEO of Lotus Butter: Handmade Whipped Shea Butter and is putting her own mark on the natural product industry, “I believe that what we put on our bodies is as important as what we put in our bodies.” 

    When it comes to essential oils, as an esthetician we focus on the "five characteristics (olfaction) purity of scent, (vibration) resonation - life force, healing mechanism (antiseptic) anti- viral, anti-fungal etc., the (transdermal) absorption, and the physiological and psychological properties."

    Metalsmith Benchtalk Past Favorites with Sydney Lynch

    in Art

    This Thursday, October 29th at 3 p.m. PDT on MetalSmith BenchTalk, we'll be going back into the archives for one of our favorite past episodes- a chat with artist and jeweler Sydney Lynch. 

    About: Since 1981, jewelry artist Sydney Lynch has been designing and making her handmade jewelry featuring contemporary earrings, bracelets, necklaces, pendants and pins in 18k and 22k gold and sterling silver. From her studio in Lincoln, Nebraska, Sydney creates both her Designer Line and singular One Of A Kind pieces that include a variety of gemstones such as opal, aquamarine, tourmaline,diamonds, pearls, beryl, peridot and sapphire set in high karat gold and silver.

    I fell in love with jewelry when I was young, rummaging through my grandmother’s bureau drawers, enchanted by her treasure trove of costume jewelry that she kept in a jumble of tiny boxes, each with its own story. Since childhood I have accumulated and “curated” my collections of objects, found and acquired, assembling them in patterns and groupings that often inspire my jewelry designs. I think of these pebbles, shells, rusted metal fragments and art objects as an archive of personal memories.

    While working on the Navajo Reservation during college, I fell in love with the wide open western landscape and met my first silversmiths who inspired me to learn to make my own jewelry. I moved from Connecticut to Colorado, where I got my BFA at the University of Colorado, and decided if nothing else, a traditional career wasn’t for me. I eventually relocated to a farm in Nebraska, then to Lincoln, where I now live. I have an airy, sun-filled studio where I work with two bench assistants and my husband.
