A GREAT THANKSGIVING





























Enjoyed our Thanksgiving feast with lots of family. There's me gloating over my just out of the oven big bird; Jim, a son-in-law, doing carving honors, and Kirsten, a granddaughter, and others intent of filling their plates so they can then fill their tummies.

Catching up - Aagain


Every time I promise myself to keep up this blog, life kind of gets in the way.

But here I am. I've been busy making new designs and getting ready for the upcoming Chatty Crafty show in Chattanooga, Tn on Dec 10-11.

In early November, I did a show at the Museum Center at Five Points in Cleveland, Tennessee.
I had a great show and sold several pieces. It always warms my heart when people demonstrate their appreciation of my art by
purchasing it.

The photos is just one of the items I sold at Cleveland.

earring backs

I usually only make earrings with wires that go through the ears, but at shows, there are always one or two women who do not have pierced ears, so I'm thinking of making a few pairs with clip on backs. I think the clips are better than the kind that screw to the back of your ear.

What do you think?

Years ago, before I had my ears pierced, I could never wear ear rings because I couldn't stand the pressure from either the screw type or the clip type, but I guess some women like them.

Of course, I can't wear earrings now because the holes in my ears have closed up and I keep putting off getting them redone. I know I should because that way I could show off some of my earrings by wearing them the way I wear my necklaces. I also can't wear most of my bracelets because my wrist is so much smaller than most people's.

new ring display





















Got the cutest thing to display a few of my rings today. Got the fancy little shoe with ring slots in Hobby Lobby @ 50% off. I think it will make a nice addition to my table at my next show.
What do you think?

Tried a new (for me) idea the other day. Here's the results.
Left: triple band woven copper cuff with carnelian
right: triple band copper bangle cuff - ends are woven together with copper wire.

Both are listed in my zibbet shop.
