Twigs and Sprouts!

Ok, it's not Spring.....not even close. But I wanted a pair of earrings with some little beaded accents that looked like Spring-y buds. So here they are.

Another pair I made tonight.
They're just sorta tiny and lightweight and simple. I needed to make something that involved no hammering or drilling, cause it's late and I don't want to wake up the neighbors.

Another New Necklace

I love it when some old components can be pulled together into a new piece. The textured rectangle is made with PMC -- I created it probably a year ago when i was on a PMC kick, but then I never knew what to do with it. The two rectangles with the open center were made with sterling wire and were supposed to be a pair of earrings, but that never happened either.

It all worked out in the end, I guess, cause I love this piece!

New Necklace!

I'm thinking of doing a double strand of chain for this necklace... its not entirely done yet. Still, I'm totally digging it! I'm calling it my "rock garden" necklace cause all the silver loops look like little rocks or pebbles.

UPDATE: I created an Etsy listing for it this morning!

Warm and Fuzzy Scarves...

I found these rich purplish pink scarves at a street fair this past weekend. They were just too cool to pass up, so I bought a few and have been going all out with some funky embellishments!

I washed 'em first, cause I was worried that they might bleed a bit. Here they are drying on my shower curtain rod...

I've always liked the look of reds and pinks next to each other. I think it all started with my first apartment, which had a wretchedly ugly bathroom... which I jazzed up with with pink walls and a thick red stripe around the middle. Fast forward a bit, and here I am detailing this scarf with some funky red suede hearts...

Too Gorgeous to Even Comment On....


One of the perks of not having a full time job -- lots of time to take vacations. Of course, not lots of money with which to travel luxuriously, but, no matter. As long as I'm on the road and seeing the sights, I'm happy.

I'm doing a 12 day tour of the wild wild west -- it started in Vegas, where the buffets were plentiful and the weather was wonderfully steamy. Then i traveled out to Zion Park, dipped down to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, back up again through the vermilion cliffs, down into Flagstaff and the South Rim of the canyon. From there, I'll be heading up to Monument Valley, Moab, Arches Park and finally Salt Lake City. Whew!

The sky out here is huge, the sunsets gorgeous and the scenery breathtaking. It just doesn't get any better!!
