Voodoo Love!

While I am loving the holidays and all of the festive colors and decor, I am gleefully looking forward to Valentine's Day and Fat Tuesday… Maybe even a little spring influence as well! I'm not over the holidays but my creative spirit has me drifting. Grab a Christmas cookie, a cup of hot cocoa and come with me on a journey to the near future… I am sure some of these will be bundled up with beads and love, ready for what ever creative adventures you could take them on! Look for that preview soon...

Catching the Light

I am so lucky to live in this lovely little town. It's the kind of place where you can bet your last dollar that if you are going to the market, you will run into at least 3 people you know. There is always a familiar and friendly face. One of those friendly and familiar faces is Sherry. She is a busy and vibrant person who is quick with a smile and a hug. The kind of person who doesn't judge you if on her daily hike she happens upon you sobbing in your car. Only kind and helpful words. Sherry makes you want to go the extra mile for her. Last month Sherry contacted me about some ideas she had for Christmas gifts. Several years ago, her father had shipped her a beautiful chandelier across the country. I am sure it must have cost a pretty penny just to ship it. Being a creative and whimsical soul, Sherry decided to share this lovely gift with her friends and family. With a tub full of chandelier crystals in hand, Sherry gave me the honor of creating one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry. These crystals reminded her of her father and his affinity for the sun, as she called him, The Sun God. With a few notes of color and style, Sherry told me to go to town. So I did...

Keeping Busy...

With some new designs. Each firing is an opportunity to dream out loud with my hands and heart….

Little of This, Little of That

The rush of December busyness has me longing for the slower pace of summer, but not longing for summer weather.  Maybe this is why my color senses have me drifting sharply away from winter…

Well, a few winter tones snuck in! These are available @
