Busy beady day!

Got into some beads today.  I had two pendants with very interesting patterns--dogstooth amethyst, that I bought the other day.  I love the deep purple and the jagged lines in the stone.  Rooting around in my stash of beads I came up with this combo of colors to enhance the focal point in each necklace.

Green Nile Goddess...  I was trying to come up with the best pictures to put these necklaces in my etsy shop.  There's more work to be done on that, but you get the sneak preview... Amethyst and Fluorite.

Himalayan Goddess...  there's a mountain in that pendant.  Amethyst, lavender fluorite, agates, and moonstone.

Follow your heart...

You know how important that is for general wellbeing.  Art does that to me, and creating art even more.  When I'm in the midst of a project I'm really happy despite the challenges that arrive as the project progresses.  Stretching and growing as an artist can be uncomfortable, but what new birth isn't??  Here are some more pictures of recent polymer clay creations.  Not very challenging but fun!

Someone or something to celebrate...

Peace is good! 

So.... PEACE today to all of you, and lots of joy!!

Made three more frames last weekend...

Magic number is three in this case...  Had just enough tiles to cover these and I even found the packed away Scrabble pieces.  I painted them, or rather stained them, to fit into the overall color scheme.

I rediscovered the fun.  Basically, I got really tired of the polymer clay mosaics, but the magic is back. I'll try not to overdo it this time....  There is something like too much of a good thing at times.  These frames will be sold locally.  Check out one of my outlets HERE.
