sneak peek

Here are a few of the new pieces that I submitted to the Christmas Time at the Fine Line<. If you are in the St. Charles area, it's a wonderful members show and sale. I also teach Precious Metal Clay workshops. Stop in.

a new adventure with resin, PMC links, leather and beautiful beads.

Random Bliss - a combination of copper and sterling. Random funky, fun!

another piece from the "energy" series -- crimson energy.

Muted Poppy - with pearls and labradorite - another piece from the Poppy series

Finally, I finished the "finding love within" bracelet with PMC charms. I posted the collage frame a few weeks ago.

my child - born artist!

Okay, I know everyone's child is a genius in her own way. But my daughter amazes me. Not just that she draws beautiful circles and can play with pencil and paper for hours it seems. But she really watches and learns. Today I was taking pictures of some new pieces for Christmastime at the Fine Line show, and she was getting upset that she couldn't help. So I gave her one of my old bracelets, and she was styling it!!! Actually laying it out making sure the beads were straight and then said "cheese Mommy" -funniest thing. It took me twice as long to finish taking the pictures, but days like today, I'm truly grateful to watch her learn, think and grow.
