Thank you, thank you!!

I have been appallingly lax about posting, spending my time and words on FaceBook! I’ve promised, repeatedly, to mend my ways, but without success.

Something new and unexpected has happened, though, that suggests I will have a better record now — I have resigned my day-job, leaving much more time for creativity and self-expression!

I hope you will join me in Celebrating my new-found freedom, and encouraging me to post more than once a year! Thanks!

Funky Valentine’s Putti -- bearing Beer

This Valentine’s necklace & earrings set of putti (or cherubs) bearing beer is made from beer bottlecaps, vintage chains, luscious orange heishi, and vintage rhinestones from an Indian dancing set.

This was Way Fun to make, and I will be adding other Beer-Love Jewelry soon!

Also coming, Wine-Love Jewelry!

Oh how embarrassing...

My wonderful art-friend Lori Zimmermann has lovingly directed folks who saw pix of the amazing Funky bracelet I made for her to this blog.

But, um...I have sadly neglected this poor blog for an entire Year!

Many apologies to all who arrive expecting to see new stuff! And, Lori, thanks for the kick in the butt! I will put up new stuff TODAY.

Hex Nut Expansion Bracelet

Sunshine slants through the slats in the old tool shed

as you turn over the bits and bobs in a weathered box.

Deep in the corner, a glint catches your eye.

Amazed, you draw forth a bracelet.

Now iridescent hex nuts circle your wrist,

each centered on a luminous bead and a looped silver spiral.

As your weekend unfolds you plug in to the playful side

of everyday objects. Six-sided fun, here we come.
