Dreaming Of The Sea

I managed to sneak in a few hours at my workbench today. I had already painted these handmade clay elements, which inspired me to go with an ocean theme today. There is a starfish and a print of a piece of coral for texture. I had some yummy trade beads and turquoise and iridescent stone beads which blended nicely and gave that earthy feeling that I love.  

 

I had mister crab lying around for a while, so I decided to go with the same color scheme and feeling .   He is hollow and soldered onto a copper base, so he is much lighter than he looks. All of these creations are one of a kind.

 

Fibers Old and New

This is an assortment of bangles that I made using wire and silk sari fabric and beads. The other ones are leather and waxed linen and some old, weathered ball chain.

 

I unearthed an old quilt that was made by one of my relatives. Being of an unknown vintage and in tatters, I wasn’t sad to cut it into small pieces to use in some necklaces. The original fabrics for the construction were flour sacks. It is embellished with an appliqued heart and a hand stamped piece of copper and then I hammered a rectangle of copper to enclose it. Each one is strung with glass and wooden beads to complement the fabrics.

 

These will be for sale at the upcoming First Thursday Artisans Party at Wall Candy in Columbia, Tennessee on May 3 from 5:30 until 8:30 p.m.

In Living Color

I was in the mood to mix it up a bit today as far as color was concerned, mixing my favorites with some contrasting colors and warm wood tones. These will be available at next week’s First Thursday Artisans’ Party at Wall Candy in Columbia, Tennessee.

The party is on April 5th from 5:30 -8:30 P.M. with live music by Cody “Cash” Huber, plenty of tasty food, wine and YOU!


 



 



Shalom

Shalom is a Hebrew word meaning peace, Nothing missing, Nothing broken, wellbeing, and complete, and used to mean hello, and goodbye.

Stamped porcelain clay with glass, turquoise, and porcelain beads.

Rainbows

Hubby bought me a new tool…a die disc circle cutter punch. He knows the way to this girl’s heart is tools. This is one of my first creations using it with my torch fired enamels.


Sweet Inspirations


 

Wandering through the streets of the Old City of Jerusalem is a feast for the senses! This colorful candy was an inspiration when I began experimenting with torch fired enamels recently. When I was in college, I had a semester of enameling and we used a kiln. When I found out that it could be done with a torch as well, I got so excited that I immediately ordered some enamel powders and started playing. I already had most of the tools and materials and a working knowledge of how enamels were used so I jumped in with both feet. It was hard to stop once I began. My palette is limited, but now that I know what I’m doing, I will order more colors. These are a few of my new creations.

 

 

New Materials Bring Fresh Ideas

 

 

Leather with hand dyed silk wrap, ancient Chinese coin, abalone, and Amazonite

This is a bracelet that I made from the hand dyed silk that I bought from the Beaded Bungalow in Nashville. I love this stuff! I might have a hard time selling this one. I could just eat those colors, they are so yummy! Thanks to Steph for the creative input.

Everyone is enjoying springtime in Tennessee. Maisy, the neighbor’s horse is checking out Steph and me on our walk. Hubby and his brother are trying to snag a few crappie in the pond
