old art from the photo transfer files

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I used to do a lot of photo transfers; love the look! - ran across this one while cleaning up my computer.
I added a little painterly stuff and double exposure to this one.
This was the view out of my kitchen window when I lived in Westport, CT.

Belle Armoire Jewelry magazine news ...

I am thrilled that I was asked to be in the Fall issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry magazine (out in September). Their publications are always so beautifully produced and it will be exciting to see some of my pieces in the magazine. This is one of the necklaces that is featured:
There will also be 'How To' pictures and information.

I love getting feedback like this

A wonderful customer sent me this feedback on her purchase of one of my very favorite bracelets:
I love that she truly appreciates all the many elements that make up this piece. 

'Unbelievable mix of the prettiest stones, beads, gems, natural stone beads and poly clay bell cap. Sturdy and lays perfect with the four wrist components. So happy!'

Spider magazine illo

Another fun job from the lovely folks at Cricket Media. 
This hard working rooster lassoing the moon is in the May/June issue
and illustrates Armani Mondragon's poem

The Rooster's Sunrise

Before the sun rises
the rooster makes room, lassoing stars
along with the moon.

Quick, quick down the hill,
hurry, hurry to his nest,
he tucks them away ...
it's the night's time to rest.

Lots almost ready to show ...


Love working with these colors ...
I've got a bunch of pieces partially completed
and a bunch photographed but not yet listed in the shop ...
coming soon!

paper bird

I was asked to illustrate a lovely poem by Jane Yolen for Scholastic's Storyworks Magazine.

PAPER BIRD

Paper bird,
You can fly.
Lift your head,
Imprint the sky.

Parchment wings,
Inky heart, 
Wind and air
Is where you start.
(...)
Paper bird,
My delight,
Take me with you 
Into night.
