oodles of new earrings

I made lots of paper beads last winter and after finishing up some picture book projects I'm finally getting around to turning beads into jewelry. I love combining their pops of color with semi-precious or ethnic or Czech beads. The pair above are stacked with African clay, recycled glass and Czech glass on sterling silver 'sticks'. Others (below) are combined with mykonos ceramics, jasper, and various metals.

This box plopped onto my doorstep yesterday.

It has only been a couple of days since I sent the final art for the 4th and last in the series (they haven't settled on the title yet). SUGAR WHITE SNOW is 3rd and should be in bookstores very soon.

Now I can work on some jewelry projects for a little while!

Babybug magazine

Did this 'Trash Truck' art for Babybug magazine a few months ago. Not my usual subject matter but I think I made it my own with lots of color and texture. And a couple of cute dogs.
