December 26



I hope everyone had a good holiday. It was fun here. Warm too. We're not used to it being so hot this time of year.

I'm looking forward to this new year. I think it's going to be a time of great beginnings.

Here is another party I am looking forward to going to next week! My! My! Such the socialite I am! It's being held at Stardust video and coffee. That is such a great place. They have art openings, and good vegetarian food, and I can also bring my dog! Unfortunately, Stardust does not have a website. But if you want to know more about the Grandma party, you can go here

Sparkle at Dandelion communitea cafe!


I like going to these events. They are close to home and support local artists and vendors. I can take my dog too! The food at Dandelion is some of the best and, as always, vegan or vegetarian. I had tea, cookies and a peanut butter sammich! It was great!

brown stone earrings


This is another pair I made recently. I am having fun making head pins and seeing what I can put together on them. I love the earth tones on this group.

These stones came together well, and I am very happy with the way they look. It's kind of a blue day here, as we have lots of wind and overcast skies. I am not complaining, I like the change.

Part of my latest batch of earrings. These came together quite nicely. I always like a happy accident, although some philosophers believe that there are no accidents. What do you think?

American Science & Surplus

This is a funny store; and I mean funny~strange and funny~haha. The text of it reminds me of the goofy stuff for sale on the back of comic books from back in the day. Certainly nothing fancy, but you may find something you didn't know you needed, at a good rate too!

Check them out!

swarovskis




You know these are my favorite crystals. I like the color combination. Lavender is one of my favorite colors. Enjoy!

I like to use rubber cording in many of my pieces, and I have a variety of silver beads that have no match, so I decided to put these 2 elements together. So far, so good.

Rock the Stitch! indie craft fair



This craft fair is next weekend! There are several local vendors that will be there that I want to check out. If you are in the area, stop by!

Punk rock flea market




I just thought this was funny. Too bad it wasn't around for me back in the day, that would have been the most authentic.

It's nice to be able to relive your youth every now and then...

swarovski's



I just love them! They are beautiful and simple. They offer the most interesting cuts on swarovski's now. I saw an abstract cut that I liked, but I can't think of how I would use it.

This is for sale at The Artistic Hand. It is a small artists shop in Oviedo, FL. It is run by Del and Barbara Seaman, a lovely couple who have had this shop for many years now. They support many independent artists in the area, and also offer classes in pottery. The house is old florida, and really beautiful. It's surrounded by old oak trees and other native florida plants. It is a great place to visit, check out the art, and maybe try a class. Classes are offered for adults and kids alike, and are held behind the house. It's a great environment for the arts and artists' alike.
(Unfortunately, they don't have a website, but you can reach them at 407-366-7882)

I had made these simple earrings some time ago. I like simple. These are very lightweight and stylish. I need to make them longer. I have thought about adding a small bead on the end, just for a dangle. I've been making head pins lately too. Very easy and since I like to use my torch, it makes it fun!

Hello all!

I have written another article for softflex company. You can find it here. They have some great beads, wire and good sales too! I'm sorry I did not post this sooner, but there have been many changes lately, and I think I am finally caught up.

I hope you enjoy!

a brand new day

I'm feeling very motivated and excited lately. A friend tells me its because of this eclipse coming up. Whatever the reason, I've been trying out some new stuff like a mad fiend and having a good time at it. I made a hairpin today, with the help of a friend, out of silver. It looks great! I am very excited! Once I have it all shined up and pretty, I'll post it. It's really great, and not as difficult as I thought. Although, using 12 gauge wire is not always that easy. I didn't even heat the metal to help form it; now that's amazing!

have a great week!
