Going home!

Say goodbye to "Slick,"  as it was just purchased from my Etsy store. Matte onyx stone squares, wired together with oxidized sterling silver, subtly colored felt circles and tiny pearls. I chose colors for this necklace that were found in the opalescent shine of the pearls...such as you might see on a slightly oily puddle in the sun.

I liked this necklace a lot...and I am sure its new owner will too!

At the opening of Re-Visions

A photo, lifted from the pages of Karen Lukacs' blog showing my necklaces. (On the brandy snifter, made from recycled felt pieces, beads made from broken wine glasses by Lou Fedorick, and laying on the floor of the display is Felt Rocks!) Karen also works with recycled fiber. Her purse here is made of a sweater and the tiny bag, out of a silk necktie. The necktie bag and my necklace look particularly fab together! Also shown in this case, brooches made from aluminum cans by Mark Ramsour.  One says "act cool," made from a Cactus Cooler can. I overheard Mark saying he can't find anymore of those discontinued cans, but if you've got one, he wants it!  Evidently many people want to "act cool" but this is the last pin, and not for sale.   Do go see the show at Tohono Chul!

Gallery Show coming right up

I just dropped off my two necklaces that are to be included in Tohono Chul's next show!  Re-Visions will feature works created out of reclaimed materials.  I peeked around a bit and there are some interesting things to see!! The artist's reception is Thursday, May 21 from 5:30-7:30 and I would love to see you there.  Show will run all the way through August 23.

I'm also working diligently on finally getting an email newsletter up and running. So much new technology to learn, so little time to actually MAKE stuff!  I certainly don't want to spam anyone, so if you are interested in joining the list, please sign up in the little box right on this page!

Gotta get all these earrings I have been making up on my Etsy site!  Poor little shop is empty...
I've also got some fabulous necklaces to list, made by my friend Barbara as well as some funky vintage finds.  My studio overfloweth!

Also this week, my oldest son graduates from high school!  A huge milestone for all of us.  Please, pass the tissues though...
