Cabochons at my house!

My stone dealer friend, Anne Kennedy, will be at my house Saturday the 21st from 10-2:30 selling her wonderful cabochon stones! She has polished stones such as Carnelian, Labradorite, Jaspers of all kinds, Petrified Sequoia,carved Mammoth Ivory, Druzy, Amazonite, Banded Agate, Kunzite, Meteorite from Russia, Dendritic Limestone... the list goes on and on! Her prices run from around $5 up to $100 or so. There should be a little something for everyone. And if you just want to come drool over stones, chit chat and munch on tidbits then join us!

More New Things

After being inspired by cool polymer clay beads by Shipwreckdandy on Etsy (see post below to view some of her work) I made some polymer clay beads of my own last night. Check em out! They look like bones.

I'm REALLY excited about making clay beads now... can't stop.
And thought I'd share that I will be teaching at Valley Ridge next October. I made this Steampunk Santos as an inspiration pieces for a class there. She's kind of a work in progress there's a lot still I'd like to do with her.

New Etsy Items

Go see the new work I put up on Etsy here's some samples:


Winter is a time of reflection and creativity for me. I adore winter. Maybe its the mature woman in me that loves the temperature, but I adore cold these days. You can see a great collection of snowflake images here. With a break from the community college I get to rest up and rejuice. I have done a lot of surfing Etsy this season and have fallen in love with these artist's artwork! I just can't get enough of the ingenuity with materials they exhibit. Very refreshing to see people play with materials and come up with such cool pieces.

First up we have Shipwreckdandy
I purchased some of these beads from her and Oh! am I in love with them!

Next we have Nusquam.

And next we have Sparrowsalvage.

And finally for today I will share some of Fancifuldevices work with you. Enjoy!
