New Materials: New Work

In my search for ways to make lighter, brigher earrings – it occurred to me that aluminum might be another fun avenue to explore. And so I ordered some. While I was waiting for that to arrive, I found the white limestone rocks during a trip to my local library. The green ceramic buttons came from a recent trip to Taos, New Mexico. Am I loopy or just having too much fun? I’ll let you be the judge.

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

Bring on the Blue Skies (and Colors!)

I am usually a huge fan of Dallas in the winter; consisting of bright blue skies and snappy temperatures that keep me clear headed and briskly active.  But this winter has consisted of a daily diet of atmospheric gruel; a cold, wet blanket of ‘meh’ …. not inspiring at all.  Unless a strong urge to nap can be considered inspiration.

So once I (force) myself out of the house and into the studio, I am desirous of color and light.  Experimenting on colorways for a new line and deciding how many items will form the new line (how many necklaces of what length?  How many earrings and bracelets?  Should I even mess with rings?)  Here is what has emerged in the last few weeks.  Most of it is not on my Etsy shop yet (though it should be) but please bear with me.  (they will.)
