It's been too long since the last post. Isn't that a typical line for the beginning of a post? My child will no longer be in elementary school....September she'll be in middle school. Last week was the celebration of that plus family stays, cleaning, food prep, entertaining, workshop prep, workshops and filling orders for clients. Sometimes I wonder how I do it all and I know I'm not alone out there. Here are some pictures of new pieces and my newest angel. Making jewelry from unusual items has become a passion for me and I am constantly experimenting. If you need some instructional inspiration and eye candy for soldered glass charms and mixed media check out these books: Pretty Little Things by Sally Jean Alexander and Collage Lost and Found by Josie Cirincione. Oh, I WILL do that little tutorial on the waxed tp pouches from the last post. I just wanted to photograph the process before I posted.
