Creativity

September 15, 2015

I am thankful to be blessed with creativity. Ideas, notions, visions, imaginings, “what ifs”, dreams – simply pour out of me. I’m never bored. I always have something I want to make or create next. I don’t know where the ideas come from. They just appear. I wake to them – sometimes in the middle [...]

March 1, 2015

I am re-visiting old favorites – a favorite show, the Las Cruces Art Festival  (see details below), and favorite jewelry designs of mine. Many times I create necklaces which sell the firt time I show them. I usually make a similar one right away – but not always. I’m quickly on to even newer ideas, [...]

What Color Are Your Eyes?

October 22, 2014

The Edom Art Festival was a success – good weather, good sales, and safe travels. During the show I noticed something about a few new customers I met: They were unaware of how certain colors of jewelry (in particular, glass jewelry) enhanced their eyes.

The show in Kerrville (Texas Arts and Crafts Festival) over Memorial Day weekend was a carnival ride of up (sunshine and lots of business) and down (heavy rain and no customers). We are happily home, to re-invent and renew.  I am taking a few online classes, spending lazy days caring for my cat, tree-gazing and lounging [...]

Bead Soup Inspiration

February 22, 2013

My soup beads from Eva Sherman arrived a while back (time is flying, as usual). The strand of ancient Roman glass beads is especially amazing. Think about the fact that those beads are over over 900 years old!   I’ve kept them out on my workbench, looking and touching. Finally I unstrung them, gently cleaned them, and [...]

Inspiration for 2013

December 20, 2012

I have enjoyed a break  from jewelry making since Thanksgiving. Now it is time for me to get back to work. My first show of 2013 is January 26th, and I’ll need almost every day between now and then to make enough new designs to begin my new year.  This head start will allow time to make “extra” creations [...]
