I made these earrings for my boss....she was having a "whatever" period and I thought these earrings would look great on her ears and she would just give them a little flip when someone asked her to do something stupid! They are made of sterling silver disks, one says "what" and the other says "ever" and then I dangled a freshwater white pearl over case she was feeling a bit more "compliant"!

I'm Back!

My latest creation! It's made of glass beads, copper wire, sterling silver, brass, and freshwater pearls! The copper pendant running up the side of the necklace says "wired" and there's a copper wire running underneath it. I wore it to my son's picnic today at school and got a lot of compliments. I always like to wear something I made to be sure it's sturdy and ready to sell!

Blue Dome and The Art Car

Here is a picture of an ArtCar that came through the Blue Dome Event tonight. It was a Rat Car with a really long tail that left behind baked potatoes!!! Terry and I are having a good time and selling lots of goodies....and it's been great seeing so many friends and customers!!!

We made it through the wind, and the storm, and looking forward to a sunny Sunday.....if you haven't already stopped by please come by on Sunday and see all the local artists of Tulsa! There are some really awesome artist booths that are worth the trip!

Ok...Mayfest is here so I'm packing up my jewelry to take to the Blue Dome! I'll try to load several pictures of my new pieces so if I sell them at Mayfest I can make another!

These earrings were made using copper wire, then were forged, textured, antiqued and tumbled for an antique look. From the ear wire to the bottom it measures just under 3". I may have to wear these to the Mayfest!

This is a new bracelet....It has a wooden owl in orange but he's upside down because I don't know how to turn him around in this picture........I need a photo editing course!

Here's my latest and currently my new "favorite" piece. It's made out of copper, sterling and has a freshwater pearl dangling. Click on the picture and you'll see a larger version of it. I hand made a heart out of copper wire, then added a new charm. It's cloudy here and I'm having a hard time getting enough light to take a really good picture. If you have any ideas on photographing jewelry I'm all ears?!

Thank you again to my Secret Sister. In my quilting group we draw names once a year and pick a secret sister and this year my secret sister gave me this for Mother's Day. You'll note that although it's a quilting group "my secret sister knows me well".....note the BEAD magazines!!

Happy Mother's Day!

I finished this bracelet last night and I'm excited about the way it turned out. It takes alot of time to cut out the copper, stamp it, liver of sulfer it, sand it, and then wait for the pieces to tumble for 4 hours but the look of the copper when it's finished is awesome so I guess I'll continue to endure this long process! I've got a couple more pieces to put together and I'll get their picture out soon!
Hope you had a great Mother's Day. Mine was wonderful!

Happy May!

I want to say "Thank You" to everyone who was a part of my Open House! So many pieces of my jewelry found a new home and all of my Copper Pieces yes, I've got more copper on order! And as you can see from my pegboard wall of beads below, I still have lots of beads needing to be turned into a wearable piece of art so I'll be making new stuff soon!
