Red Christmas Pie

2012-12-27T13:44:25.796-08:00

I brought this pie to Christmas Eve dinner. vanilla cookie crumb crust, almond cream cheese filling, red berries; cherries, raspberries, strawberries, and pomegranates. The cranberry glaze ties it all together. YUM

I did a little Ice Resin project yesterday. I had a Monarch butterfly. Such beautiful wings. Pictured above is a monarch wing atop a slice of mica, with a vintage brass clock gear. the toggle with all the little gears is fron Objects and Elements. And the pocket watch casing is from Tim Holz. Fun.

Spooky Halloween Jewelry

2010-10-21T11:22:38.626-07:00

(image)
(image) Here is my spookiest piece: made using a vintage procelain bisque Charlotte doll torso, along with some of my favorite crystal roundelle beads and my favorite sparkly chain from Objects and Elements.....I should call this necklace "all of my favorite things"!

(image) Notice the amazing glass pumpkin bead! I strung it on the necklace sideways to show the top and bottom of the bead. The name of the orange-colored glass is actually "pumpkin" - and the tan effects make it look so authentic! I even included little hammered wire vine spirals!


(image)
Notice the creepy porcelain bisque Charlotte doll arms!

These earrings are made from antique bakelite beads I got from one of my grandmother's old necklaces she used to wear. Love the orangey lustre!







Happy Halloween!!!!!!!!!

I LOVE HALLOWEEN!!! Every year I am so inspired! This is a collage I am using as the focal piece in my Halloween display. The witch is from one of my favorite rubber stamps of a glamorous lady...I think the witch's hat is very befitting!



R.I.P. Maximus

2010-10-21T10:59:59.876-07:00

(image) Rest In Peace, wonderful Maximus!!!!! Max is my dog of 12 years, who I got in Maui a long time ago. Max came from Maui to Oregon, and then travelled to NY when we moved here 5 years ago. Max was the most wonderful, smart, amazing dog that ever lived. He was very special to my whole family. Maximus left this world last Sunday, 10-10-10. Farewell to you, my beloved friend and companion! We will miss you so much!!!

Heres some of my latest jewelry. Pictured above is a keychain I made using a smoky colored vintage chandelier crystal, and some nice little crystal beads. Above that you see a beautiful custom made glass heart in dark red with blue ribbons of color throughout. I completed the necklace with garnet chip beads highlighted with tiny blue glass seed beads. Atop the heart shaped pendant are a collection of black beaded necklaces for the Halloween season, and a group of earrings. My favorite are the black square Swarovski Crystal earrings!

Topaz Amulet Pendant

2010-05-21T09:54:44.094-07:00

(image)
I used a broken Topaz ring for the focal piece on this pendant, and wrapped the outer area with tiny Topaz beads. This is one of my favorites.



It's really hard to take good jewelry photos...

2010-05-04T10:38:22.979-07:00

(image)
(image) I wanted to show off my newest piece. I used some new effects. I wrapped soem vintage typewriter keys that spell "dream", and then wrapped some bitty sparkly topaz beads around this neat little gear charm (Tim Holz), and the rest is glass beads and polished steel wire. Those curlies that hold on the gear were hard...another Deryn Mentock inspiration from an old issue of Belle Armoir Jewelry.

I just started to sell my jewelry at Gallery 41. I am the feature artist there this month, and I have a nice show in the back gallery - both my jewelry and my collage as well. Up on top is my focal piece for my 2D stuff... I used an old chess board, all aged and crackled already for me, and I used an old lithograph print that was falling apart as the background imaging, plus a lot of little thingamajiggies from about my studio...this piece reminds me of my father, who was an attorney.
Pictured in the bottom photo are my hand pounded hoops wired with little sapphire beads - sparkly!

100 wedding invitations!!

2009-06-30T09:57:54.579-07:00

(image)
I made 100 of these cards for my cousin, Cally - for her wedding invitations. I made them as my wedding gift to her. What a big project! On Sunday, I got together with my mother, 3 of my aunts, my daughter, and my cousin - we drank wine and set up an assembly line for the card production. It was an awesome family day!!
I used antique vintage music paper, and all handmade embellishments. I corrugated the hearts myself.

The Tattoo Queen by Gill Del-Mace

2009-03-28T20:35:06.992-07:00

(image) Isn't she wicked cool?!!! I had a poster of this painting in my first tattoo shop...it's long since gone. I'd love to find another $20 copy of it, but I've looked everywhere, and to no avail. The art prints of this piece start at about $350, and that's for a little one. To have one that does it justice is unthinkably priced at around $800. I want it for my tattoo shop so bad. Maybe Santa claus will bring it to me... if I'm a good girl...
