This is a new piece that I recently did. It is a vintage earring that I found at an antique shop. I altered it and it makes a lovely bracelet. Recycled and vintage...what more can you ask for???!!!

New Jewels

These are so very lovely fresh water pearls and will make a very elegant necklace.

Recently I went to a bead show and I found these lovely pendants. I can't wait to use them. They are unusual beads from the Himalayas. To me they feel very indie and will make great necklaces....so much potential!!!

Dandelion- Are tap-rooted biennial or perennial herbaceous plants, native to temperate areas of the Northern Hemisphere of the Old World. The English name dandelion is a corruption of the French dent de lion meaning lion's tooth, referring to the coarsely-toothed leaves. In modern French the plant is named pissenlit, which means "urinate in bed", apparently referring to diuretic properties.-Wikipedia

Stamps...wonderful stamps!

These are some stamps I made out of rubber. They turned out fantastic. I think it's a great idea that can furthermore personalize your creative work. They are just simple drawings that I traced out and then carved away. I try to always remember the negative and positive spaces.

Thousand Origami Cranes

Japanese legend claims that if you fold 1,000 paper cranes you will be granted a wish. Paper cranes are symbolic for long life, recovery from illness or injury, and world peace. The cranes are commonly held together on 25 stings with beads on the ends to help prevent them from falling off. There are 40 folded paper cranes per a string. As a tradition in Japan it is common to give a married couple at there wedding 1000 folded paper cranes from the folder for happiness and prosperity. In western culture it has been custom to give a crane to cancer patients (usually terminally ill) to using them at funerals or on graves.
Sadako Sasaki was a little girl who was two years old, who was living in Hiroshima, Japan when an atomic bomb was dropped on August 6, 1945. She lived 1 mile from ground zero. About 10 years later she was diagnosed with leukemia. Her mother called it an "atomic bomb disease". In November 1954, she developed lumps on her neck and behind her ears. January 1955, she developed purple spots on her legs. In February she was diagnosed with leukemia and was hospitalized.
In August 1955, while in the hospital she became inspired by cranes that were donated, she began folding. Sadako completed 644 cranes before she passed away. Her family and friends finished the remaining and was buried with a 1000 of her cranes. In Hiroshima, there is a Children's Peace Monument for peace in the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. It is a monument for all the children who were victims in the atomic bombing. The monument is considered a wish for peace and directly under it there is a peace wind chime.

Comfort Zone

I am begining to experiment with mixed media. I think right now the hardest thing is trying to get out of my comfort zone and not be "safe". Bright colors are safe for me...things that I make to match are safe.
