whack a mole

 I've been working. Down in my studio. Like a mole.
Not really a mole. I love love love working in my studio. I just don't always like to surface.
 These earrings are so comfy and delicious. The beads are all lampworked here. by me. the mole. with a torch.

 I did a wee bit of enameling... this pair is called "it's not always black and white" and has some lampworked headpins I made.
 More finished necklaces...
 ...more enameled earrings...

"get in touch" (these are my lenten line...not as funny as last year)
I'm going back down.

What's On My Desk

A customer was lucky enough to find 30 old-time children's compasses. I soldered half a jump ring on top, copper patinaed them, glued in a "Never lose your way" image and am letting them dry before I add a top coat and then resin them and add a brass chain to each. I love them.
Like my photo enhancing? It's a free program called Pixlr-o-matic. Fun times.

Join Us On Saturday at The Liberty House

Aunt Patty at The Liberty House in Seward has decided to try something new. She's invited Carolyn from Cottonwood, The Sassy Miss Carol, myself and several more local crafters/artists/hoarders to have an Indoor Flea Market this Saturday from 10-5. I have no idea what you should expect other than Treasures and (I'm hoping) Treats. Come on over and scavenge around! We would love to see you there. Bring your friends! Buy each other presents!
