I’ve been cold. Not quite as cold as some people here in the U.S., but cold enough for me. I don’t operate well in the cold. I tend to sit and stagnate, and get colder and colder, and more and more paralyzed. I really wouldn’t survive the End of Days when the ice covers the […]
The line up – revealed.
But first. Today’s cup of tea. Well, one of them. I’m usually a four cup a day girl. So, Here are the five great, Hope’s Quilt, bonanza flowers that have made the final cut. Except maybe this green one. Which might need a little something more. See, compared to the others, it’s a little too […]
Why jewelry making (for me) should perhaps be a spectator sport.
This is what happens when your mind wanders for just one nano second while you’re using the buffing wheel. So take heed new jewelry making people. This little beauty. Can do this. Soon I will make a booklet of all my jewelry injuries so that you can avoid them. It should sell for millions. I can’t give […]
Everything going at once.
New quilt design for Hope. My 5 year old niece. It’s getting there. – Paintings. Could they be more different from each other? – Jewelry. Charms. All of which created in a complete mess. But I fixed it. Now it’s boring. Fortunately it won’t take me a nano second to get it back to […]
Time for a new link.
I’ve been off my groove, but now i’m back with a new silver link. So, if you’re in the mood for fiddly, have a go at this. Just remember my disclaimer as I’m not available to tend to any injuries incurred … First up, and this is very important, put your i pod down the inside of […]
I think I’ve got it! Well almost. Thanks to Bob. Who knows just the thing to give my photo’s a little more oomph. I think Bob is my new best friend. Until I find another one. You can try him out for yourself – HERE. But you can’t have him. He’s mine. Get your own best […]
I had a bit of trouble.
Hate it when the drilled hole in the top of a bead fractures. It makes the bead practically useless, and these chrysoprase beads just happen to be my favourite! So what’s a girl to do? Pretty much this is the best of a bad job. I just couldn’t do a thing with it except try […]
A banner. And it’s really big and in your face and a bit scary. 4′ x 2.5′ scary to be exact. – It’s for my booth at the art festival. It going to scream, lookee, here I am, and then I’m going to have to talk to people and try to sell my jewelry to […]
Exciting times in the studio.
There’s been a massive clean up. Something apparently took over my body yesterday and lo! Can you say-what happened! Everything is in its place. Which is kind of frightening. In a creepy sort of way. But, I’m liking it. From this angle it doesn’t look like I’ve done a thing. But, it’s my little piece […]
While you’ve been waiting.
I’ve been in a funk. It happens. I’m still in the funk really but I thought you might all forget me so I had to drag myself back from the brink. I’m not in as much of a funk as Colin Farrell though, he’s having a bit of trouble with his recall at the moment. […]
Some new work and a plan.
These are some things I’ve been working on. I’m interested in developing my silver skills and making more of my doodles. I like these earrings and think I’ll experiment more with them today. Don’t ask about the dots. For some reason this pendant reminds me of the circus. Not sure about this necklace. I like […]
Just some doodles today.
This one cracks me up. He looks so frightened. – I made this one into a rubber stamp. He also looks a little worried. He’s friends with the banner bird in my title. It’s safe to say, we have overload again. So much fun to make all of these things, and so little time to […]
I’ve been missing in action from the studio scene as I’ve just had to sit down and wallow for a few days. I felt too deprived to get up and move around too much as it might have made me feel better and I wasn’t finished feeling sorry for myself yet. You can find out […]
It’s all about me.
FREEDOM!!!! Yesterday was my first day back in the studio. MIL flew back to England on Friday and so it was all systems go on Saturday. Well, that’s a small fib really as I didn’t get out of bed until 11, then we sat around watching West Ham take a thrashing from Sunderland until P […]
It took me a while, but,
I finally decided where to send my money. I sold a bracelet at the beginning of the week and it geed me up to make a decision. It was beginning to niggle me. I know my money doesn’t make that much of a difference, but, I was beginning to feel bad about all the people […]
Was the art fair. The weather was perfect. Which is unusual to say the least. It’s usually hot as hell, even though it’s near the end of October. Here is my booth. Every year, well twice a year really, after I pack up from doing this fair I swear I’m going to re vamp my […]
Thursday, and all is well.
Crisis over. I’ve priced all of my jewelry so I’m good to go on Saturday to the art festival, if it doesn’t rain. I’ve had my hair cut. (Haven’t actually taken a good look at it yet so I’m hoping it’s o.k.). I’m about to have a cup of tea. Then I’m off out to […]
Depressing boxes and dismembered arms.
This weekend has been apartment hunting weekend. B starts working in Austin today. Nothing like leaving things to the last minute I say. I’m pleased for her, and us. She graduated in May and has been home since then. Love her to pieces, but, enough already. Trouble is now she wants to take all of […]
Do you think Spencer One Eye could be more comfortable? I can’t make the bed until he gets up. O.K. that’s not true. I probably wont make the bed anyway. Soooooo, it’s Friday. Again. I’m not up either – only because I don’t want Spencer to feel the odd man out. I’m a good pet […]
To wholesale or not to wholesale …
Still working on this one … And also found an old one to work on … I’m really enjoying the finger painting. I also made a few more pieces of jewelry. I’ve been wondering whether to approach some shops or galleries with my jewelry, but after figuring out material costs and the time I’ve spent […]
