Love when I have a vision of something and it comes out the way I imagined it! Am thinking I need to add some gold to make the bird stand out more. I'm gonna make a series of these.
Just cant stop making these babies!! They are so beautiful and so easy to make. I think tonight I will be dreaming about what I can create with them!! I have some for sale on etsy -- see the link to my etsy shop in the right column.
The orangy stuff in the picture is a childhood favorite; silly putty. Its a great way to see how the plates will read in PMC before making a commitment in metal clay.
I love teaching! Its great to meeting fun people and creating together. Last Saturday I had the pleasure of hanging out with TK, Julie, Vickie, Norma and Linda. To see what a great time we had, making PMC and fusing fine silver, click on the picture below:

This pendant is gorgeous! Am excited to post my student's wonderful creations. This one was done by Rosemary Lanyon in the Photopolymer Plate and Box Pendant session last month.
Lately I have been trying to help a friend find a job and a car. I am reminded that we do not have to do this on our own that the Good Lord Above has us in his care and he is watching over us. This piece gives me peace knowing He will take care of her -- all we need to do is reach out an pray!!
I have so many fun silver beads and charms I have created waiting to be "hooked up" with other pieces. Last night I was inspired to string and knot them with leather cord paired with my all time favorite stone; turquoise. Love the way it feels on my wrist.
Have been having fun making these charms and pendants from Vintage and Antique Victorian Buttons. Am shipping some to The Beads Shop to be sold on their online store www.beadshop.com. Am also selling way fun moulds from my vast button collection on my etsy shop. See my link on the right top side of my postings to view them. I have a million and one ideas for these babies swirling in my head...will I ever rest???
I wire wrapped these beads and pearls on the way to Point Reyes one weekend. It originally had a manufactured toggle clasp. The pearls and the colors reminded me of the sea.....so away I went in my studio and made this mermaid clasp to finish it off. When I wear it I want to be somewhere on the seashore.
Love the bird theme lately. Finished this for a friend with wire wrapped rubies, mauve pearls and fine silver beads.
