Diva of the Month - Lea Avroch - Part 3 (10 Silly Questions)

Welcome to Part 3 of our January installment of Diva of the Month! This month we are interviewing Lea Avroch of LA Jewelry Designs. In this segment, we ask our Diva "10 Silly Questions."

1. What is on your nightstand…list everything! - Telephone, tissues, chapstick, eye cream, hand lotion & of course, a book. :-)

2. If we were visiting, and starving and you weren’t home…what could we find in your pantry / fridge to use to whip up a meal? - This is SO easy! I have a pantry in my basement filled with canned goods, pasta, etc. & a full freezer too so it should be no problem whipping something up. My hubby teases me all the time about my hoarding issues.

3. Favorite color and how does this show up in your bead work? - I love all the colors of the ocean; teal, turquoise, blue. It is definitely obvious in many of my beads.

4. Making beads is solitary work. How do you handle that? If you listen to music / watch videos, please share some of your playlist. - I actually like working and being by myself. I think I would find music or other sound to be distracting.

5. Describe the most fun day you’ve ever had. - I had 2 girlfriends come over to spend the night recently. We giggled till we cried. It's the simple things in life that are important.

6. If you had one wish, what would it be? - To have a separate studio space with good lighting that's heated in summer & has A/C in winter. I would love to be able to house all my jewelry making supplies there as well.

7. Who do you most admire in glass and if you could take a class with that person, what would you most want to learn? - WOW! this is SUCH a tough question! There are SO many beadmakers that I admire. If I could only pick 1, it would probably be Kim Neely. She's the master when it comes to silver glass. I have several of her tutorials and judging just by her writing, I can tell that she must be an amazing teacher as well. (

8. What is the first thing you do when you get home? - Take off my shoes & put on my slippers or flip flops.

9. Do you have a day job? If yes, what is your favorite thing about it? - No, I wish I did. I used to be a Dental Hygienist, but had to quite 13 years ago when I had my 1st spine surgery. Just had my 2nd & am hoping that I can get a P/T job once I'm all healed.

10. Name three tv shows you watch but are kind of embarrassed about. - I don't have any that I'm embarrassed, but I'll give you some of my favorites: Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Modern Family, Dancing With the Stars & So You Think You Can Dance.

See you all next week for our conclusion post!
