new bracelets

Guess I'm not done with the empty nest black birds have invaded the nests. This bracelet is for sale on Moxie Gallery.


Another colorful lightweight cuff has been added to Moxie Gallery. Light and airy for summer. This color combination will go with just about anything.

Check out the faux enamel bead.

key lime cuff

Key Lime is the title of this wrist adornment... a new line of cuffs that will be up for sale on Moxie Gallery. This cuff houses a tiny original abstract art piece nestled in faux enamel. Stained metal, buttons, washers, silk, and a hand crafted faux enamel bead, make this cuff fabulous, light, and airy for hot summer wear.

Key Lime...yum yum

rain forest necklace

The above necklace has been featured in BEAD TRENDS magazine/booklet April 2011 issue. You will find photos and How To Instructions on pages 100 and 101. The necklace is made using all recycled materials, including old painted canvases and recycled denim jeans. To the left of the photo is a tiny peek of a purse that I made to go with it.

Another view of the necklace here.
Sorry, (no I'm not) the purse is sold.

beyond about face

Art Unraveled is just around the corner and I will be teaching a class on how to paint portraits in watercolor for beginners. The name of the class is About Face, and the sample can be viewed HERE. Once the technique is learned you will be able to go beyond that simple painting. You can use the drawing and the technique as inspiration to take it further into mixed media collage and jewelry making. The above mixed media painting was inspired by the class sample, and the necklace was inspired by the mixed media painting. If you are attending the class, I will give you all the information on how I take a simple piece of art, and take it beyond.

Hope you are inspired.

See you at Art Unraveled.

I am trying to touch base with each of you, though I have run into a couple of blogs that are private. I thank those of you who have emailed me private and those who have become followers. A big hug to all of you.
