kiln is FINALLY done!!
I Kinda Fell Off the Face of the Earth
So even if you are a quilter, or mixed media artist, remember to try out other objects on your artwork. Even items that are normally considered for jewelry artists! Think outside the box!
I hope these items inspire you to make something summery and get ready for the summer season!

in His Grace: Favorites Party
Here are a *few* of my favorite things:
A Fellow Jewelry Artist
An Owl of a Journal
Had it all fused and ready to quilt and then lost my inspiration for that particular project, but found it today and got it all quilted.
The above picture is the back……sometimes I love the back more than the front. It looks like a doodle. Actually this will be the inside of the journal, not the back.
Took a picture to remember it since, when I put the sleeves in it, to hold the book in place, this doodle will be covered.
Here it is over the cover of the journal. The book I am using for a journal is actually a very nice datebook that was given to me by my insurance company.
Since I already had a cool Kelly Rae Roberts datebook, and I couldn’t stand to throw away a book full of paper, I decided to make a journal or a notebook out of it.
Tonight or tomorrow I will add the sleeves to hold the book inside and the binding. I will post a picture to show it to you as well as some photos of some more things birdy 🙂
I would like to stitch a catchy, maybe even corny, “owl” saying onto the front of this also…..anyone got any ideas?
Sneak Peak at New Ideas
Silver, Butterflies and Flowers for Christmas.
SO……one of my New Year’s resolutions is to post more to my blog…..really!!!
As usual, over the last month or so I have kept really busy. One thing I have been doing is learning about metalsmithing, bezelling and jewelry. Here is a picture of my second piece. I am practising combining the silver with my flameworking to create some usual jewelry pieces in 2010.
I thought I would post my latest creation that a customer ordered as a Christmas gift for her niece. I can only show a small part of it since it is a gift for Christmas and I don’t want to spoil the surprise.
