I’m Back!

Hey Everyone!
My new computer has finally arrived and my brilliant brother-in-law DYLAN has done his absolute best to put my *life* back in order! At this point I do have access to my regular e-mail account but with a few glitches. Please note that I may have lost some e-mail along the way, so if you have sent me anything in the past week – please resend! Thank you all for your patience and understanding.

Side Note: There will not be a memorial service for the dead computer as I have still not forgiven it for its untimely passing.

In the meantime, please *Bear with me* as I adjust to the new programs and variously frightening technologically advanced tasks I must accomplish to get through this adjustment period.


I do have NEW Exalted Beauty Medallion collections on the way (very soon!) so please stay tuned!

But for now, enjoy these Zen moments from the front porch…

Morning Turkey Parade:


Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! :) Amy

My Computer is DEAD!

My computer died today.
I do not have access to my personal e-mail at this time. Please call or contact me through my Myspace address until further notice. I am still taking orders.
I apologize for the inconvenience.
Thanks,
:) Amy

Sending FROST to California!

I am thrilled to announce that the Exalted Beauty Frost Medallion Collection is SOLD OUT and is currently on it's way to San Francisco! The majority of the Frost collection has been snatched up by the fabulous Fine Facets jewelry designer Kimberly Quon! Yay! I will be counting the days, waiting with breathless anticipation for the shipment to arrive safely in California! I am SO unbelievably excited! Something tells me Kimberly's new designs will involve lots of delicious pearls! Go check out her site: Fine Facets Or visit Kimberly on Myspace! :) I can't wait to see the amazing creations she makes with these medallions! Thank you so much Kimberly! :)

Beth's Party!!!

Last Friday's Exalted Beauty Medallion party hostess Beth, was completely fabulous! A big Thank You to the gorgeous goddess for throwing such a successful party! Beth's house was spectacular, of course, the food was stupendous and the company was absolutely hilarious! I loved meeting such wonderful, witty and intelligent women! We had a great time! Once again I am so thrilled to have been invited to exhibit my medallions in such amazing company. Thank you so much to all the ladies that came to see (and purchase) my work! Your awesome! :)

Side Note: Beth's sister, the beautiful and talented Christine McKim (big time medallion junkie) was in attendance, so I was able to deliver the freshly framed Abstract Spirals for her upcoming interior designs! Don't forget that the
Abstract Spiral Painting Series will be exhibiting at Bridgman's Fine Home Furnishings this month, incorporated into sets designed by the stunning designer/photographer/artist Christine McKim! I'm very excited to see what she comes up with! :)

Abstract Spirals Framed!


I finally managed to frame some of the Abstract Spiral Paintings!
The frames are original designs created especially for me, by Master Carpenter Dick Eastman, renown for his awe inspiring finish carpentry work! He designed these simple, sturdy yet elegant pocket style frames to house all of my paintings on Masonite. Examples of the talented Mr. Eastman's work can be found through out New England, but my absolute favorite Eastman Originals can be found in my childhood home! :)

It's Orna-Mental, My Dear!


I've designed an Ornament Medallion collection for you Christmas Crazies! It will be here soon! Stay tuned! :)

Clay Takes Form!


Here are the Medallions I created from the clay seen below.
Think Cyndi's going to have a hard time choosing? :)

Get Frosted!


The Exalted Beauty
Frost Collection has arrived!

A Collaboration with Cyndi!


I have a fun new collaborative project in the works with highly recognized, award winning, jewelry expert/designer Cyndi Lavin (of recent HGTV fame). The *mysterious* image above is the clay I mixed to match the seed beads Cyndi is using in her new masterpiece. I will be posting my creations as soon as they are made, hopefully later this week. I'm going to let Cyndi pick which medallion best works with the necklace.

If you would like to see the stunning bead work in progress go visit Cyndi's Blog.

I'm very excited to be working on yet another magnificent necklace with this amazing woman! As many of you may remember, our first project together was the Charmed Life necklace (that also involved 7 other fabulous jewelry artists) to benefit breast cancer. To find out more about the Charmed Life project go to:
A Charmed Life. I will be posting images and information about the Charmed Life necklace when it is my turn to wear it!

Medallions Make Great Holiday Gifts!


Each Exalted Beauty Medallion is an Amy E. Fraser One-Of-A-Kind Original sculpture, hand painted with acrylic glazes and quadruple coated with industrial strength varnish. Each medallion comes on an 18" leather cord with plastic, glass or metal accent beads and a nickel plated barrel clasp. The medallions range in size from 1" to 3". The back is a black lacquer finish with a 1/2" black and white AEF logo in the center. Each medallion is packaged in a 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" glossy white AEF logo jewelry gift box and glossy white AEF logo gift bag.

The woman who receives an Exalted Beauty Medallion from you will know she is someone special!

Visit the Exalted Beauty Medallion Catalog to pick out your unique gift!

The Art of Advertising: Playing Dress Up

So you caught me playing dress up on MySpace!?!
I'm advertising! I know it's a dirty word, but I'm attempting to provide different examples of how an Exalted Beauty Medallion looks *on*. The catalog is great for those of you who already have a concept of the necklaces size and scale, but for those that don't, the only way to judge is by seeing someone wear one!

Here is one of my recent advertisements:



I hope it helps, but the best way to know what an Exalted Beauty Medallion is going to look like on you, is to try one on for yourself! :)


Angela and Jackie's Medallion Party!

Angela and Jackie's Medallion Party was an absolute blast!
My two beautiful and gracious hostesses really outdid themselves.
Their home was stunning and the giant display of appetizers was a feast for both the eyes and thighs!
Everything was amazing! I had a great time! I really enjoyed meeting all of the fun new Exalted Beauties! I am also thrilled at having the chance to spend time with some of my favorite hard core medallion fans!
What I enjoy most about these parties is being around the women who are *able* to pull off an Exalted Beauty Medallion. It takes a special kind of person to wear an Amy E. Fraser original! These are women who are fun, bold, and sassy! These are women who appreciate creativity and make an art form out of laughter. The kind of women who exude sophistication and class but can get down and dirty with the best of them. You know who you are ladies! Your awesome! I feel lucky to have had so many great hostesses that have provided the opportunity for me to not only make sales and connections, but also with the opportunity to be around spectacular women like these on a regular basis. I appreciate you more then words can express! My Medallion Ladies are the best people ever! :)
