My Creative World…

Ahhhhhhh…Studio Time

I love it when I get some uninterrupted time in my studio! So…today, after I made breakfast, picked the garden, mowed the yard and ate lunch, I got to escape to my creative space and get to work.

I had an order for 5 pairs of earrings of different colors so that was first on the list. They are all torch fired enamel in various shapes and colors and textures.

Then I popped outside to water my flowers on the patio which were looking a little wilted, and then got back to work. My dress form mannequin had been needing a makeover for a long time and I had an idea for it when I was driving down the road yesterday. I took off the old fabric cover and covered it with vintage dress pattern tissue.

While waiting for her to dry, I was sorting through some of the polymer clay beads that I made recently, I noticed a good combination with a ceramic clay pendant that I had made a while back using one of my hand carved stamps. A good starting point for a new necklace.

Earthy

It’s the time of year to start to dream about digging in the earth and planting seeds. A couple of days ago, we were in the mid 30’s and alternating between a blizzard and sunshine. In about three days, the prognosticators are saying that it will be 75 degrees. While I still have some time when it is not quite gardening weather, it is the perfect time to spend in my studio.

The necklace above features a hand cut and hammered central piece with a deer antler toggle. The beads are vintage trade beads, semi-precious stones, metal, and clay beads that I picked up at the Nashville Flea Market last week.

The central stone in this necklace is a large jasper “button” that I picked up in Taos a few years ago and a yummy fibers store. I kept trying it out in different applications and never was satisfied with it until now. It is combined with a hand hammered copper spiral and a wooden element, which was given to me by my friend Steph.

The clay pendant in the necklace below was also given to me by Steph. Check out her blog Vladthebatsattic. I combined it with some river driftwood, trade beads, wooden beads, macrame’ and a vintage celluloid button closure.
