Fun at the Sidewalk Sale

I always have a bit of a hangover after a weekend fair, and this week is no different. The Sidewalk sale was lots of fun, but setting up and tearing down two tents 6 times is a workout. Construction workers had just finished pouring cement when we started setting up but they were eager to […]

Popping up at Blue Buddha Boutique

So earlier this year I set a goal of being a vendor in Blue Buddha Boutique. I went to introduce myself and my pieces, but then failed to follow up as life took on a schedule of its own. Enter the Edgewater Artists In Motion, which put out a call for artists in late summer. […]

A River Rock Commission

After a recent pop-up event a friend asked me if I could wrap her river rock into a pendant. When she brought it to me, I instantly thought of a heart shape. She agreed, and the wrapping began, while putting on appropriate music for this dancer. I used a prior heart pendant as a template, […]

Artists Challenge

Last month a Facebook Artists’ Challenge made its rounds and it was an interesting way to narrow down my art into categories. I posted hearts on day one since Valentine’s Day was nigh. For that day I nominated Lisa Wilson of Being Breath, an artist and life-balancer I met during Shawna Moore’s encaustic workshop. With […]

Etsy Refresh

Valentine’s Day is coming up so it is time to review my jewelry inventory. With 238 pieces of jewelry in stock that is more time consuming than anticipated. I’m pleased to see that only one pendant has gone missing after packing and repacking items for multiple locations at least 10 times this past year. Deleting […]

Maraviglia of the Month

I teased my Facebook Fans with pieces last week that haven’t made their way onto Etsy, but are being uploaded now. I wore the pencil pendant out to NEW’s Women’s History Month event, along with Swirly earrings. Green-ish pieces were featured on two occasions. I wore the turquoise-wrapped spiral earrings and the Knitter’s Delight scarf […]

The Custer Fair is Saturday and Sunday

The hammer is down and I’ve made all the wire pieces I can make for Custer’s Last Stand. Here’s a sneak peek at the pieces that will be present on Saturday and Sunday. My friend and tent lender Jason McPhillips is bringing his paintings, including cowboys and Indians, like General Custer and Crazy Horse. The […]

New Princess Scientist pendants

I had more inspiration under the brightness of the chilly sun on Friday and created another Princess Scientist inspired batch. Who can resist such a sunny table? Princess Chocolatier emerged from reviewing the molecular structure of Theobromine. I attempted to emulate the loopy notches of a microchip for the Princess Programmer pendant, and was surprised to […]
